The Caring Easter Bunny Welcomes Children with Different Abilities on March 19

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Saturday, March 19, 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 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“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. “Savannah Mall’s Caring Bunny greets children in a calm environment, in an effort to make the Easter Bunny experience enjoyable for everyone.”

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

During their visit with the Caring Bunny, families will be given a 5 x 7 photograph from the visit, and a complimentary ride on the children’s train. For more information, visit www.savannahmall.com
