The Speelhuislaan in Breda will be packed with 750 skippy balls on Saturday. By selling the so-called symbolic Easter eggs, the TopOpKids foundation raised money for children from Breda who need help.
“We usually do this at Christmas with about a hundred skippy balls, but now we wanted to go big at Easter. We hang 750 skippy balls in the trees of Speelhuislaan on Saturday afternoon over a length of 750 meters. That is a record”, says co-organizer Paul Bartels .
The symbolic Easter eggs have all been sold for € 35 each to entrepreneurs and people who support the actions of the foundation. The foundation wants to use the money to help children who could use a helping hand.
For example, the money is used to buy bicycles for children who attend secondary school, for Sinterklaas presents and birthday presents and a day out to an amusement park.
The TopOpKids foundation is a group of entrepreneurs who work for children. Previously, bicycles for children, laptops for the youth were purchased and an outing was once organized with 500 children to the Efteling.
“The 750 skippy balls will hang around for a month. Then we will hand out a hundred to children. We empty the rest. They can be reused next year,” said Bartels.
