THE EASTER BUNNY FOUNDATION

2018 found The Easter Bunny Hip-hopping in 30 states throughout the USA, delivering smiles to over 14,000 hospitalized children.

The Easter Bunny Foundation is a Non-Profit organization whose mission is to provide a personal visit and a toy from The Easter Bunny during the week of Easter to children in children’s hospitals and pediatric wards across the United States; to share with others the excitement and wonderment that only a personal visit with The Easter Bunny can bring; and to deliver a smile to all who we come in contact with.

We would like to thank those people who have helped make The Easter Bunny Foundation a success. In particular, a warm and “hoppy” thanks to the 100 Sheriff’s Offices and 4 Police Departments that helped to make so many children smile this year. A special thanks also goes out to Sheriff Jerry Demings for visiting the children and for continuing to spread the smiles here in Orlando! Finally, thanks to all of the other generous people who gave their time, effort, and donations this year.

Thank You All and Happy Easter
