For the last several years, I have received a wealth of support from friends and family for putting together baskets for women survivors of domestic violence and donating them for Christmas. This annual hobby started in undergrad and (thanks to your support) has continued for several years now. 

I managed to put together 6 baskets the first year, increasing to 15 baskets two years ago as several friends and family decided they wanted in on the endeavor. Last year we were limited to 10 baskets by the organization we were donating to, and thanks to your support we reached this goal. From West Lafayette, Indiana to Chicago, IL to Washington, D.C., women have been truly touched by these baskets and have expressed eternal gratitude throughout the years.

These baskets are meant to remind women who have lost their self confidence that they are loved, beautiful, and have worth. While recovery begins internally, it's my goal to gift them baskets of items that make them feel beautiful again. Baskets usually consist of:

  • 1 Scarf
  • Make up: Eye liner, mascara, eye shadow, lip gloss
  • Fragrance
  • Lotions, bath gels
  • Wallet
  • 1 piece of jewelry with insipration engraved
  • Loufa

This year I will be donating to the Bethany House of Northern Virginia, again. Each basket typically costs >$30, so I'm setting this goal at $300. If you would like to donate items instead (which many of you do and is always welcome), please contact me to set this up. 

Your support makes all the difference!
