How to Prepare Your Basket for Donation

1. Build a Basket

Fill a basket (bucket, box, tote bag or other container) with fun, new items that help to tell your story and brighten someone's day! Build a basket around your story or any theme that you like.

If you would like to donate an individual item for raffle (such as artwork, sporting events tickets, hotel getaway, spa packages, etc) please contact Lanette at 623-205-6446 for details.

2. Make a List

Attach a list of ALL ITEMS to the outside of the basket. With so many goodies inside, it can be hard to see everything in a basket once it's wrapped up. Be sure to include a list so that other's will know what treats are waiting inside!

3. Share your Story

Is your basket in honor or memory of a loved one? Share their story! Think about some of the things loved or activities they liked to do and share it with others!

Print up your own story or use our handy forms to get started!

Our Printable PDF allows you to print out the form and fill it out with ink before attaching it to your basket.

Our Fillable PDF allows you to fill out this form on your computer, the print and attach it to your basket.

4. Wrap it up

Wrap the entire basket in clear (see-through) cellophane, shrink wrap or in a gift wrap bag.

We don't want any treats getting lost during transportation so be sure to package all of your items securely in their container.

Gift wrap bags and cellophane wrap can be purchased at your local craft or party supply store (Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics, Party City) - or on

You can also make arrangements in advance if you would like us to wrap up your basket for you.

Need Inspiration? Check out some of these ideas!

Think outside of the basket. Your "basket" doesn't have to be a traditional basket. You can use a bucket, tote bag, serving bowl, ice chest, toolbox or other container that suits your theme.

Are you a business? Create a basket promoting your business or company. Include products or vouchers/giftcards for services.

Build a basket in honor or memory of a loved one. Think about something that they really loved to do and share it with others!
