About Baskets of Hope
What makes women strong? Sometimes it’s their strength of character, their perseverance through adversity. Sometimes, it’s their conviction to reach out and help. Baskets of Hope, an initiative by Rohit Group brings together women from all facets of life to help women in need. The tradition first started in 2010 by Dianne Young as a small gathering of 12 friends. In 2013 Krishna Gupta, of Rohit Group, joined hands with Dianne Young, and it has since bloomed into a beautiful tradition that joins together business leaders, community members, friends and family who generously donate time and treasures to provide comfort and hope for women who have made an incredible sacrifice to protect themselves and their children. Women who have fled their homes and are now housed in shelters no longer have access to the little luxuries we sometimes take for granted. Through Baskets of Hope, we gift them with these items… to help them feel special… to help them forget, for a moment, the life they have left behind.
