(SAVANNAH, GA) On Saturday, March 28, the Caring Bunny will be greeting families at the lower level of Center Court in the Savannah Mall, located at 14045 Abercorn St. With an atmosphere free from bright, flashing lights, or high-energy music, all children with different abilities are invited to meet Caring Bunny at this free event from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
“April happens to be Autism Awareness Month, which is why we wanted to offer a chance for children with different abilities to meet with an Easter icon,” said Phil McConnell, Savannah Mall’s general manager. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s most recent data suggests an average of one in 110 children have an autism spectrum disorder. Autistic children’s senses can be oversensitive or under-developed, which affects how they experience different environments, making background noises unbearably loud or confusing. This can cause anxiety or even physical pain. For more information on the CDC’s information on autism, visit http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/features/counting-autism.html
Savannah Mall’s Caring Bunny greets children in a calm environment, in an effort to make the Easter Bunny experience enjoyable for everyone. In addition, families will be given a 5 x 7 photograph from the visit, and a complimentary ride on the children’s train.
