brisbane basket brigade

our work

The Basket Brigade is a non-profit organisation that provides food and gifts for people that need a hand - children, the elderly, hungry & homeless - during the Christmas season each year. To date, hundreds of teams of volunteers feed more than 2 million people in 400 cities, across 74 countries annually!

philosophy

Our baskets are given anonymously - the only note recipients receive asks them to take care of themselves and if one day they find themselves in a position to help another then we encourage them to do so - the "pay it forward" concept

how we began

Since 1995, throughout the Christmas season, the Basket Brigades of the Magic Moments Foundation have worked with grassroots organisations to deliver food, clothing, toys and hope to those who need it most
