About Gift Baskets From Michigan
One summer we had numerous weddings to attend and wanted to bring a unique gift to each one. We decided to put together unique gift baskets that were only filled with Michigan products. The response we received was great and we had a wonderful time searching for Michigan items to fill up the gift baskets.
We began to think that this might be a pretty good business and in 2002, Gift Baskets From Michigan LLC was founded. We searched all across the state for great and unique Michigan products to include in our gift baskets. We've been selling gift baskets filled with Michigan products and shipping them across the United States ever since.
Great pride is taken in the fact that we only sell gift baskets that are filled with Michigan products. No exceptions.
Why do we donate 1% of all sales to the Food Bank Council of Michigan?
We want to be more than just a business that generates income and promotes the state of Michigan. At the end of the day we want to know that we made a difference to help someone in need. To do that we decided to help feed those in Michigan by donating 1% of all our sales to the Food Bank Council of Michigan.
We know that this is just a small part that we are playing in the effort to stop hunger in Michigan. With each of your purchases we take one more small step towards that goal.
The Food Bank Council of Michigan is a statewide organization that helps provide the food banks in Michigan with the millions of pounds of food needed each year to feed the hungry. In 2008, the Michigan food bank network distributed 50.2 million pounds of food (up 25% from 2007). If you read the papers and watch the news lately, you know that the need for food is only going to increase.
