Elephant Family and Action for Children are the two charities behind this exciting event. Their boundless passion and shared vision has brought them together to create The Big Egg Hunt and raise the money they both so urgently need. Eggs are a universally recognised symbol of new life, a fresh start and hope for the future – the bedrock of both the charities’ missions. Elephant Family is working to save the endangered animals in the wild from extinction through conservation projects. Action for Children challenges injustice and empowers children to overcome the obstacles in their lives that hold them back.
