Norwalk, CT, November 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The holidays are a time when families and loved ones gather together and celebrate all that they have. Sadly many families must do so with bare tables and empty ovens. The CT Basket Brigade’s yearly event represents the hope and the prospect of giving to those in need. Self-help author and success coach, Tony Robbins, began the Basket Brigade more than 30 years ago as his individual effort to feed families less fortunate. The program has since grown into the Anthony Robbins Foundation's International Basket Brigade, providing baskets of food and household items for an estimated 2 million people annually, in countries all over the world.
Throughout the year International Basket Brigade volunteers distribute food, clothing, and hope to those who need it most. The 2010 CT Basket Brigade will take place on Saturday, Nov. 20th, at Champ Direct Printing & Mailing, 75 Cascade Boulevard, Milford, CT 06460. A second location may be added as well, in response to the amazing volunteerism over the years (more information to come). During 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, volunteers will assemble and deliver baskets of food and provisions to area families. Last year the CT Basket Brigade fed 500 families; for 2010 it has doubled its goal, hoping to this year feed 1000 families.
In order to reach their objective the CT Basket Brigade is asking you to volunteer and donate some of your time or resources to a cause based on the simple notion that one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. The CT Basket Brigade accepts donations online via PayPal. A simple donation of $30.00 can feed one whole family, with one hundred percent of all donations going towards purchasing food and toys.
Norwalk-based marketing company, JumarMarketing, LLC is partnering with the CT Basket Brigade, refurbishing its website, creating an email marketing plan, launching a public relations campaign, and creating a Facebook page and Twitter presence, all aimed at generating year-round awareness and support for a worthy cause. JumarMarketing staff will also be volunteering for the CT Basket Brigade’s fall event. Jumar hopes that volunteers, new and old, will upload photos, share stories and contribute to the CT Basket Brigade’s expanded presence.
About The Basket Brigade
Founded by self-help author and success coach Tony Robbins, The Basket Brigade is built on a simple notion: one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. It takes only one light to dispel the darkness and even just one basket or a few, to bring hope. A Basket Brigade takes place when one individual prepares one basket to personally deliver to a needy family or individual.
