Rosemarie started this all off with her Valentine's Day Baskets two months ago. Those baskets went so well we decided to do something each month. Last month Operation Ward 57 donated Georgetown Cupcakes for us to pass out. This month since we are celebrating Easter we decided to put together Easter Baskets. With one email, I had more things then I could have imagined.
Yellow Ribbon Fund donated the baskets. Aleethia Foundation donated the grass for the inside of the baskets and the plastic wrap and ribbons for the outside. The contents for the baskets were donated by Help Our Military Heroes, Operation Ward 57, Operation Second Chance, and the Oklahoma chapter of the Blue Star Mothers.
We passed the baskets out on Friday afternoon. For us "Senior" caregivers these baskets have been amazing. Going back to the beginning and being reminded of how far we have come, really helps in your healing. We also love being able to share our stories of healing and hope with the families that are new to journey. I think Rosemarie's idea has developed into a reciprocal relationship that is yielding some incredible results for everyone involved. I can't wait to see what we do for the next months.
