Easter Party

Winter is a long season and spring can’t come soon enough, especially for underprivileged children, who do not have access to recreational activities to help them get through the long season. Easter arrives and reminds us of chocolate, fluffy stuffed animals and the end of the cold season. With the arrival of this new season, the Easter Party quickly approaches, providing a source of inspiration that revives our "joie de vivre" and a desire to share this joy. However, for thousands of children living in poverty, the arrival of warm weather is just another season that does not change the fact that they are poor.

Spring is a perfect moment to share one’s happiness with an underprivileged child. That’s why, Children Now is organizing a magnificent Easter celebration for more than 700 underprivileged children aged between of 4 and 6 years old. These underprivileged children, who have never had the opportunity to participate in any of our activities, will be our stars for the day! They will have the opportunity to experience this party in the magnificent ballrooms of our loyal partners from the Loews Le Concorde Hotel in Quebec City and the Best Western Airport Hotel in Montreal.

Nothing will be left to chance for this occasion! The ballroom will be decorated by the talented artists from Serrano Studio who add a magical touch to this dream day. The children will be invited to satisfy their appetites with a hot all-you-can-eat buffet. Joyful clowns and professional animators will entertain our invited guests with songs and a show specifically prepared for the event. Arts and crafts workshops and inflatable games will be waiting for them and professional make-up artists will paint magical new faces on the children, bringing them into a world of make-believe. The children will also participate in the traditional Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter Bunny, accompanied by its friends, charming mascots and our 40 volunteers will shower our little guests with affection and tenderness. At the end of the day, our volunteers will distribute Easter Chocolates and many other sweets and surprises, donated by our faithful sponsors.

Thanks to our involvement and your support, these youngsters will be able to participate in this activity that they would otherwise be excluded from. Several children have expressed their appreciation during past events by saying things like “It was the greatest day of my life!”, “Wow, this is like a dream!”, “I think that I am going to cry, I have never received so many gifts!” With your social involvement, we can increase the chances of success and happiness for these children and provide them with the same advantages that more fortunate children may have. One day can make a big difference in a poor child's life. We want show them that with some will power and determination, it is possible for each one of us to realize our dreams and accomplish great things!

Changes During Covid-19

This year, we have made modifications to our annual Easter Parties in order to ensure everyone’s safety. Rather than hosting the event in a hotel’s ballroom as we usually do, we are going directly to the schools and turning their gymnasiums into Easter Wonderlands. Additionally, as per current safety guidelines, the shows will be entirely virtual. To ensure an interactive experience, a projector will be installed in the gymnasium so that the animators can both hear and see the children in real time. Similarly, the children will also be able to see the show from their respective classrooms thanks to the use of smart boards. This method was carried out for our 2020 Christmas Show in Montreal, and much to our delight, the event was an absolute success. It gave the children an opportunity to forget the challenges of everyday life, especially during this pandemic and allowed them to fully immerse themselves in a wonderfully surreal experience. Given that we were only able to host the Easter Party for some of the children sponsored last year, in addition to the two new schools being sponsored, we will bring the Easter Party to the two other schools that did not yet get the chance to participate. Therefore, this year we will be bringing the Easter Party to two schools in Montreal on March 31st and April 1st and two schools in Quebec City on April 7th and 8th. The children will be entertained by professional animators and mascots who will present a festive Easter show filled with laughter, singing and dancing. In addition, we will be providing a hot Easter lunch and dessert for all the children. Of course, there will be the traditional Easter Egg Hunt within each of their respective classes, which without a doubt, is the most unforgettable moment of the day. To finalize the day, each child will receive a variety of gifts including Easter chocolates, soccer balls, and plush toys.
