This Easter has been such a wonderful reminder about how giving can not only affect the recipient, but also the giver.

I headed a wonderful campaign for Hershey’s called Better Basket where 20 blogger were given a gift card to put together 2-3 baskets of Hershey’s goodness to give to someone who deserved a sweet treat this Easter holiday.

Detroit Mommies filled two baskets full of Hershey’s products, some exclusive to Walmert and gave one Better Basket to the nurses at the Children’s Hospital in Detroit and the other basket was given to a family who was going through a rough time.  In both cases smiles graced the faces of everyone involved and those involved are feeling the magic of the Easter season.

Then we also participated in the Better Basket Blog Hop and for the post we wrote here on Detroit Mommies, Hershey’s donated $10 to the Children’s Miracle Network.  There was such an overwhelming response to the blog hop that Hershey’s ended up donating $7000 to Children’s Miracle Network on behalf of the amazing response to the blog hop.  If you were a part of this hop, thank you!

I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter and appreciate all that you have.  I know I will!
