Let People Know Where Their Donated Money Will Go!

comments 0

The simple fact is, people are being asked for donations now more than ever. We are called on the phone, asked at cash registers, contacted via email, and shown compelling commercials on the television. It can be financially impossible to support every cause we believe in, but most of us are still very charitable people who want to help the best we can, as long as we know where the money is going.

Will you be hosting a raffle this spring? We wish you the very best! And if we can offer one tidbit of advice, we encourage you to simply let people know where their money will go. You don’t have to get super specific – a general overview should suffice! If buying raffle tickets benefits a school sports team, supplying them with money for new equipment or uniforms, put that right on your flyer beneath the picture. Is your raffle money going toward a new air conditioner or carpeting for the church? Let people know! We truly believe there is more good in this world than is often noticed, and that people simply want to know what they are putting their money toward before they do it. And, of course, having an awesome raffle prize is an incentive as well!

Many of our gift baskets and cookie bouquets are ideal for spring raffles. They are eye-catching, colorful, packed with tempting treats, and have near universal appeal. We hope you’ll consider including one or two in your next raffle, and wish you the best of luck in surpassing your goals!

The Why Isn’t Always Important!

We have become a people dependent on ‘good reasons’ for doing things. We want to know ‘why’ perhaps now more than ever, and in many cases, that is a very good thing! When it comes to the foods we eat, for example, we are more informed about what we should eat and why it’s good for us than we’ve ever been. However, always looking for a solid reason to do something ourselves, or in wondering why something was done, can also be a bit exhausting.

Just a few days ago I couldn’t stop singing Christmas songs. I was singing them around the house, around the office, in the car – pretty much everywhere I went! Why was I singing them? I have absolutely no idea, to be honest. But everyone around me kept asking, and it was starting to take the fun out of it!

If you go to the mechanic and he tells you that your car needs $5,000 worth of work, by all means ask him why. If your computer requires a technician take a look at it, ask her exactly what went wrong and how to prevent it from happening again. If you wake up tomorrow to find your neighbors camping in your backyard, I think you’re more than justified to ask them why they’re doing that. But before you go questioning everything that happens, whether it’s a silly video someone posted online or someone at work singing Christmas songs in March, ask yourself if it might not be more fun for everyone involved to not question it and just enjoy it.

One of the best things about cutting back on ‘why’ is that it’s replaced in your brain by an unspoken ‘why not?’ Driving home from the gym and notice a new store you’ve never seen before? Might as well stop – why not? Suddenly feel compelled to reorganize your bathroom or bedroom, or paint the walls a totally offbeat color? Go for it – why not?! See a fun gift basket or beautiful floral bouquet you know a friend would love, but it’s not her birthday, or her anniversary, or a holiday? Send it along, anyway. ‘Just because’ can be two of the most beautiful words when they’re attached to a gift from the heart, and they don’t leave any room for ‘why’!

Easter Gift Basket Bouquets: Chocolate Gets Us All Hippity Hoppity Happy!

Have we told you lately how much we love chocolate? We try not to say it too often, as it’s pretty much a universal love. Apart from eating chocolate alone, people find all manner of ways to incorporate it into their everyday lives. There’s chocolate flavored ice cream, chocolate milk, hot chocolate, chocolate cakes and pies, chocolate syrup, and chocolate dipped fruits. There are of course millions of other chocolate creations, but you get the drift!

Chocolate is a decadent, divine, delicious thing, and most people melt at the mere mention of the word when offered a piece. So in this post we’ll be highlighting some of our chocolatiest Easter gift baskets, perfect for sending some of the sweetest stuff on Earth to someone special on your list…

Reese’s Easter Candy Bouquet – Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Candy is Better, Don’t You Think So, Too? Because we do! And to say this Reese’s gift brings on the peanut butter and chocolate in spades is an understatement. Artfully arranged to replicate a flower bouquet, this candy bouquet is made up of sweet stems of treats. Available in 3 sizes, it’s easy to find the one that best fits your budget or the recipient’s appetite.

Easter Candy Bouquet Assortment – Does your favorite chocolate lover also count non-chocolate candies as a must-have? This charming and colorful variety bouquet certainly serves up some chocolate, but also works other Fun Size treats into the mix. Candies might include Butterfinger Eggs, Starburst, Skittles, M&M’s Minis, and more.

Extreme Reese’s and M&M’s Easter Basket – Can’t decide if you want to send M&M’s or Reese’s? With this basket, there’s no wrong answer! Bursting with plenty of both, to include both full size and fun size packs, this Easter basket is perfect for the chocolate lover who likes to mix things up. Like all our basket bouquets, this style is designed to look great from the front and the back. It also tastes great from every angle!
