Caring Bunny @Orland Square Mall!

Caring Bunny is Coming to Orland Square Mall to Create Extraordinary 
Experiences for Children with Special Needs
Orland Park, IL (March 20, 2012)—Caring Bunny is hopping into Orland Square Mall for children with special needs and their families on Sunday April 1, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The event will be held prior to mall opening, so that accommodations can be made to support the sensory, physical and other developmental needs of all guests.

Caring Bunny is a joint program developed by The Noerr Programs,, the digital imaging company that provides the Bunny Photo Experience for malls nationwide and, a national online resource hub and special needs community. Orland Square Mall is pleased and honored to be the host of this program during the Easter season.

 “We had an overwhelming response to the launch of Caring Bunny and Caring Santa last year.  As a result, we are thrilled to expand this program to 52 malls,” said Sheryl Young, CEO of  “Holding the event before the mall opens to the public helps provide a calmer, sensory-friendly environment,” adds Young. 

For children with a variety of special needs, standing in line, bright flashes, crowds and sounds can create major disturbances and distractions.  “We take great care in making sure our photo setting is conducive to all abilities, to allow these families to participate in a heartwarming tradition that so many take for granted,” said Judy Noerr, CEO of The Noerr Programs.  “It’s very rewarding to see the number of siblings who attend, many for the first time.  It’s just as much for them, as it is for their brother or sister with special needs,” notes Noerr.  

“We are honored to host the Caring Bunny Experience," said Gayle Gleespen, Director of Mall Marketing  and Business Development. “Guests will listen to social stories that explain and anticipate the actions involved during their Bunny visit, then engage in coloring and other activities while they wait for their number to be called for their magical visit.”

The Caring Bunny takes place on Sunday, April 1 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.   RSVP’s are requested at
