What's different about this Egg?
“If you landed here as Easter approaches, what would you think Easter is about? Chocolate, bunny rabbits, cute little chickens? Is that all? I believe there’s more. That’s why I’ve made this egg that reminds us why we celebrate Easter – because Jesus is alive again!”

- Print and display the Poster with their name written in. Promote the Eggs in your Announcements.
- Place your first order once you reach 20 Eggs.
- You can then place further orders in multiples of 10 Eggs, up to our FINAL deadline of Sunday 19 March.
- We will amalgamate all your orders and deliver them together for the Sunday before Easter.
Each Happy Easter Egg costs just €8.00 / £ 6.50, including free delivery to your church (or group) for orders of 20 Eggs or more. We will deliver any number over 20 free, once it’s a multiple of 10 Eggs.
We cannot guarantee supply for orders placed after Sunday 19 March.
Inside The Box
In the box is the Happy Easter Story booklet which tells the Easter story in easy-to-read rhyme and with great illustrations. And online there’s even an audio version of the Happy Easter Story. For 2017, we have free Easter competitions both in the box and online, and there are all sorts of other things to do online.
Not forgetting eating the delicious milk chocolate egg and honeycomb crisp milk chocolates (total 195g), made of high quality Irish chocolate and supporting Irish businesses. And for every Happy Easter Egg purchased, 10c is donated to the Hope Foundation.
‘I commend the Happy Easter Egg to you and to Members of your parish. The focus given to the true meaning of Easter from a Christian perspective ought, of itself, to commend this particular egg to you as your No. 1 purchase for Easter.’
The Most Rev Dr. Michael Jackson, Archbishop of Dublin & Bishop of Glendalough,
Primate of Ireland & Metropolitan of Dublin.
‘I think the Happy Easter Egg is wonderful because it explains the real meaning of Easter for everyone.’

President of the Methodist Church in Ireland 2013 – 2014,
General Secretary of the Home Missions Department.

Ordering from outside the island of Ireland
Some of you have asked if we can ship Happy Easter Eggs directly to your relatives in England, Scotland or Wales. We are able to do this, but it does cost extra. The minimum order for this service is 10 Eggs, but it is more economical per Egg if you order our usual minimum of 20 Eggs.
Please click here or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements, and we will give you further details.
It may also be possible to ship further afield, but again please get in touch with us and we will see what we can arrange for you.
