TRANSCRIPT: Basket of Hope is a nationwide charity, where we administer to children who are hospitalized. And we go and visit them and their family, to encourage and love on them, and we bring them a Basket of Hope. That's how we minister to them, through the Basket of Hope delivery. And we offer them an age appropriate basket, full of toys and games, and goodies to entertain them and help them recover while they are in the hospital. And the family is offered, which is the heart of Basket of Hope, a Hope Tote, which is filled with Jesus. It's filled with bibles, and music, and just a variety of inspirational materials. To really tell the family and show the family, from the community, that they are loved, that they are not forgotten, that there is hope. To be encouraged, and that their not alone.
