Basket of Hope is a 501©3 non profit organization whose mission is to bring the hope that comes from Jesus to children suffering from cancer or other serious illness by the delivery of a Basket of Hope containing items to nourish them physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
The Basket of Hope program believes that if we can encourage the parents of these seriously ill children they serve as the most effective support for their children. Therefore, we include inspirational books, Bibles, and journals for them to remind them of God’s love for them and their children and that He will be with them through this journey. Thanks to Tony’s generosity, we will be providing his book, Quiet Strength, in all of the baskets across the country this year. We feel this book will be an inspiring message of hope to parents as they face an unknown future for their children. Tony and his wife, Lauren, understand what it is like to have a child with a serious illness as well as the fact that they have suffered the most difficult loss of a lifetime in the loss of their son, James. Yet, they hold on to the eternal hope that we have through Jesus.
Tony Dungy is the National Spokesperson for the Basket of Hope and encourages other NFL players, coaches, and individuals to begin a Basket of Hope program in their local Children’s Hospital. If you are interested in starting a program in your area please visit our website at www.basketofhope.org and contact us for more information. Tony has put together a short video explaining the program. If you would like to view this video please click on the icon on the front page of the Basket of Hope website.
Tony Dungy makes frequent trips to Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis to visit with the seriously ill children and bring them a Basket of Hope.
