Festivals & Holidays — 14 November 2008
‘Tis the Season to Pay It Forward!

Hello Friends,

Please take the time to read this entire letter….

Zachary wrote a letter to Tony Robbins, and he responded by contacting us and inviting Zachary and I to his Unleash The Power Within event in Orlando this past October. In December, we will be attending his Date With Destiny event as well. We were blessed to have been able to attend the entire 5 day seminar, and to have over two hours with Tony himself in one on one conversation. The experience was very healing to us both, and we feel incredibly blessed to have been assisted and inspired by Tony to move forward on our journey after last years events. The Foundation, staff and all crew members were incredible to us, and we are still buzzing from the fact that we both walked on fire! ! Because of the generosity of everyone who made it possible for us to partake in these events, we both feel a strong need to pay it forward and to assist with his Foundations Annual Basket Brigade Event. We wish to keep the momentum of giving going for us and our friends… and what better time to jump in than the Holiday Season. ‘Tis the Season to GIVE!

“One person can make a
difference and every person should try.”

Please Join Us This Year in Helping Feed Families

What is Basket Brigade?

Basket Brigade is a group of 100% volunteers donating and delivering tailor made gift baskets of food for a Thanksgiving feast to families in need. What began more than 30 years ago by Tony Robbins as an individual effort to feed families in need, has now 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. For non-profit status, please request the 501.pdf document.

Who is Anthony Robbins?

Please click any of the Robbins’ links on this page.


The International 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! Therefore…

We ask you to please join us in Pinellas County’s first annual Basket Brigade which we are coordinating. Please visit www.pcbasketbrigade.webs.com for more info.

Our goal is to feed 100 families this year and we need your help to accomplish this goal.

“Think of giving not as a duty, but as a privilege.”

It will take about $35 to a basket.

Each basket will have a message in it that reads:

This comes to you from someone who cares about you. All we ask is that you take care of yourself well enough to be able to do this for someone else someday.

Be sure to decorate your baskets and make them look special! This is a gift, and a present, not charity. Get the kids involved! Make this FUN!!

Forward this E-mail to anyone who may want to help!

Let us know how many baskets you are doing… we need your help!

If we have the opportunity to be generous with
our hearts, ourselves, we have no idea the depth and breadth of our loves reach. ~ Margaret Cho
