[Lehigh Valley, PA]  – As Easter approaches, The Kindness Project, a dedicated nonprofit organization supporting foster families and the youth in their care across eastern PA, is gearing up for not one, but two exciting initiatives to brighten the holiday for those in the foster care system.

Each year, The Kindness Project hosts a special event cherished by foster families and children alike. The goal? To provide 500 FREE Easter Baskets for foster families to share with both their foster and biological children. This heartwarming event has become a cornerstone of support and joy for the community, and The Kindness Project couldn’t be prouder to continue this tradition of love and generosity.

“This is a special event that our foster families and kids really enjoy each year. Our goal is to provide at least 500 FREE Easter Baskets for our foster families to give to their foster and biological children. We couldn’t do it without you!” says Jenae Holtzhafer, Founder and Executive Director of The Kindness Project.

In addition to the Easter Basket giveaway, The Kindness Project is thrilled to announce the kickoff of their 6th Annual TKP Egg My Yard Fundraiser. This unique initiative allows community members to participate in a beloved Easter tradition while supporting a great cause.

Here’s how it works: Orders are now open for residents to enlist the help of The Kindness Project’s dedicated volunteer “eggers” who will stealthily hide treat-filled eggs in yards on Easter Eve. It’s an instant Egg Hunt on Easter morning that brings joy to families while supporting youth in foster care.

For those who prefer a more hands-on approach, there’s an exciting new option this year: pick up pre-filled eggs and hide them in your yard yourself! This streamlined option saves time and allows families to create their own Easter magic, all while contributing to a worthy cause.

“We’re excited to introduce this new option for our Egg My Yard fundraiser. It’s a convenient way for families to participate while still supporting kids and teens experiencing foster care,” explains Jenae Holtzhafer.

Orders are being accepted through an order form at But act fast! Easter is rapidly approaching this year! All orders must be placed by March 15th, so The Kindness Project can plan and prepare accordingly to serve every interested family.

If you’re not interested in ‘egging your own yard’ this year, you can still make a difference! The Kindness Project is seeking donations and sponsorships to sustain its mission and cover supply expenses.

Sponsorship opportunities begin at $25, which covers the expense of egging a foster care family’s yard. Larger contributions go toward providing essential supplies to ensure the success of this event.

“All proceeds support kids and teens experiencing foster care so it’s a win-win!” adds Jenae Holtzhafer.
