THE STORY:

During last years Thanksgiving Basket Brigade, I was truly inspired. When I showed up that day, I was excited, but didn't expect the amount of joy that would course through me throughout the day. From shopping for the supplies, to building the baskets, to driving to the delivery locations, to meeting the families, to sharing our hearts, to seeing the smiles, to feeling the gratitude, to going home feeling full. Each step, each moment was simply magic. I want to re-create that experience more times throughout the year because realizing how many families could use this gift and realizing that many people just need a space to give has opened up something inside of me. Easter Basket Brigade is an idea that came to me and put me on a trajectory that has led me here. Creating an opportunity for others to have the experience of supporting those in need and feeling the rewards and joy that contributing outside of ourselves can bring about. The more money we raise, the more families we feed. If anyone is interested in volunteering on March 26th in mid-city LA and having the full experience, please feel free to contact me and we'd love to have you join us... Thank you for anything you are able to give. Whether it's donations, in-person support or just well-wishes. You are appreciated!
