Make your baskets truly wonderful. Decorate them beautifully with ribbons, bows and more. Use your creativity and imagination. Fill them with a combination of delicious goodies and practical items. Your basket should convey that it is a gift, not a handout; a present, not charity! Please do not pack any used ietms. Click here for pdf file of supplies list.

It will take about $35 to a basket.Each basket will have a message in it that reads:
"This comes to you from someone who cares about you. All we ask is that you take care of yourself well enough to be able to do this for someone else someday."
Again, be sure to decorate your baskets and make them look special! Remember, this is a gift, and a present, not charity. Get the kids involved! Make this FUN!! Remember to keep your spirit of giving in check!
If we have the opportunity to be generous with our hearts, ourselves, we have no idea the depth and breadth of our loves reach. ~ Margaret Cho
