Easter Basket Brigade

We are The Toronto Power Group, a volunteer peer group committed to improving ourselves and bettering the lives of people in our community.

A week from now is Easter. There is so much to be thankful about, as many of us live in such abundance. Unfortunately, there are many who don’t have the same blessings. There are many families that don’t know where their next meal is coming from. No child should have an empty table or fridge, especially during a holiday, when other families are having a feast. 

For the last 5 years, we have delivered Thanksgiving dinner baskets to families in need. 

This year we need your help.

Our goal is to feed 200 families in need on March 31st, 2018, right here in Toronto. Your support is of the utmost importance!

Best Selling Personal Finance Author Calum Ross has already started our campaign off by generously offering to sponsor 100 baskets and challenging us to match his contribution of $5000... so we said yes!

All these  families are counting on us to help them have a true and happy Easter dinner and we just can't let them down.

We could really use your support to pull off a miracle.

The Toronto Power Group Basket Brigade is modelled after the Anthony Robbins International Basket Brigade, which is built on a simple notion: one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. 

Here are some examples of the difference we have made in people's lives , like Laura, one of previous year's recipients: 

"I was very, very, very thankful for the basket. I could not believe my eyes when I saw what was in the basket. Everything was so nice, and you must care because you put the note and the recipe in. This was my first thanksgiving in Canada, and I followed the recipe to a tee – it was a beautiful dinner for my family – my husband was very pleased and impressed. I was so thankful, I was crying"

and another example from Nicole:

"I receive a lot of help from different agencies, but the basket you delivered actually flabbergasted me and I actually cried - real tears, real crying - I felt such gratitude."

Each basket contains:
1 - 10lb Turkey
1 - box of potatoes
1 - can of cranberry sauce
2 - can of peas
2 - can of beans
1 - can of gravy
1 - bunch of thyme
1 - head of garlic
2 - whole lemon
1 - whole onion
1 - package of rolls
1 - butter
1 - fruit pie
1 - aluminum pan
1 - turkey recipe
1 - laundry basket

Whatever support you can provide will make such a profound difference.

We thank you in advance!
