Beloved Canadian chocolatier, Purdys, has always been passionate about supporting Canadians and giving back to their community. This Easter, Purdys is crafting joyful memories for the children at Lions Gate Hospital with an interactive Easter egg hunt. Purdys believes that kids everywhere should be able to experience childhood moments—even when they’re away from home.
This isn’t your average egg hunt; Purdys has set up 12 two-dimensional eggs around the hospital grounds (some up to 5 feet tall) and have provided the children with an Easter box containing binoculars and instructions on how to find these extravagant eggs. Once the hunt is over, each child will receive Purdys’ Easter chocolates to celebrate a successful hunt.
In addition to the Easter Egg Lookout, Purdys is donating $20,000 to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation to help support life-enhancing and life-saving care.
Many hospitalized children don’t get to experience the fun of searching for chocolates on Easter morning and aren’t given the opportunity to build important core memories with their families. Purdys wants to be a part of delivering an unforgettable and magical experience where they get to feel like a kid again.
For those looking to instill Easter fun in their homes, Purdys Mini Foiled Eggs and Barnaby Bunny are sure to be a hit. Easter favourites like the Hoppy Easter Gift Tin, Easter Basket, Bunny Bag, Peanut Butter Eggs and Baby Bunny still available.
