We donate quite a few Bodacious Raffle Baskets for fundraising events. These events help raise money for our local animal shelters and local rescue organizations. The money is used to purchase much needed items, cover medical expenses, etc. We are always happy to assist with these efforts. That's one of the things we do. And, we love it.
Whipping up a Bodacious Raffle Basket isn't cheap. Thankfully, from time to time, we've had generous "hoomans" donate pet stuff like toys, books, apparel, t-shirts, etc. We fill our Bodacious Raffle Baskets with these items along with bags of our biscuits. Once done, we wrap the basket, tie off with a ribbon and it's good to go.
One of the biggest expenses with putting together our Bodacious Raffle Baskets are the actual baskets. While we do use a variety of sizes and colors, the baskets have to be tall enough to hold the items. From time to time we'll hit up a decent clearance sale or score a few decent baskets at a yard sale. And, on occasion, "hoomans" have donated a few...which has helped out tremendously.
Over the past few months we've made several dozen Bodacious Raffle Baskets and now, we're almost out of baskets.
If you've got some extra baskets that you'd like to get rid of, let us know. Big baskets. Small baskets. Holiday themed baskets. Various colors. Wicker baskets. Wired baskets. We take 'em all. Whether it's one basket or a dozen, every basket helps out A LOT. If you're in Connecticut, we'd be more than happy to pick up (within a reasonable traveling distance) or you can drop off.
Thank you in advance!
