How this Luling, Louisiana specialty gift shop raises money for those in need

The Basketry is a specialty gift shop that serves the New Orleans area with delivery of gifts, gift baskets, and gift boxes. Their online store serves the rest of the contiguous United States. In an effort to give back to their community, they’ve created a program called “Wrap For A Cause”.

“One of the best services that we provide our walk-in guests with is complimentary gift wrap for each gift they purchase. We have a tip jar on our counter and encourage our guests to generously tip "for a cause." Each month we label our tip jar, so that our customers know where their tips are going. This past month, we raised $2500.00 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.” Says Kristi Brocato, owner of The Basketry.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society puts its funds towards research, but also gives a percentage of the money to families who are battling blood cancers. The tips raised from last month’s event benefited local, John Robert. John is a little boy in the New Orleans area who was named "Hero of the Year" by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Previous tips were donated to a St. Charles Parish family who lost their home in a fire, a local boy who needed a heart transplant and a Humane Society adoption program.
