Brittany's Baskets of Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by me, Brittany Schiavone, a young woman thriving with Down sydnrome. Through my organization, I create and deliver welcome baskets full of resources, love, and hope to new Down syndrome families across the country. My mission is to celebrate these new bundles of joy and to remind them and their families that individuals with Down syndrome can do anything! 

100% of the funds we raise go to supporting families with a new baby with Down syndrome. We use your donations to purchase items for the welcome baskets and to mail them to families deserving some extra resources, support, and love all over the United States! I want to spread the word that no matter who you are or how you're born, you can lead a full, joyful life! 

Since delivering my first basket of hope in October 2016, our organization has been booming! We've now sent baskets to over 300 families in 45 states across the country! I've spoken at schools, colleges, and conferences across Long Island and my work has been featured on, The Mighty, Ditch the Label, Elephant Journal, and News 12 Long Island, where I was selected as one of the news channel’s “12 Making a Difference in 2016.”

Requests continue to stream in, which means we need YOUR help! Please donate and share my cause to help us celebrate new babies with Down syndrome and fill our baskets with children's books with messages of acceptance, handmade baby's blankets, onesies, resources for the parents, and more!

I have a 30 year old son with Down Syndrome. His sister Amanda Troyer asked me to make a donation in lieu of giving her a Christmas gift. She is the best sister Andrew could have ever asked for!
