GiftBasketsPlus.com Partners with Dog Rescue to Help Raise Donations

FILED IN Something Special No Comments

According to the Humane Society of the United States, pet overpopulation in the United States is a massive problem, with an estimated 6-8 million dogs and cats in shelter care every year, of which approximately 3-4 million are euthanized. Various organizations have been created to protect the rights and give shelter to these neglected animals, but more help is needed. This is where rescue groups play an important role in the fight to end the pet overpopulation problem. These amazing volunteer groups, driven solely by their love for the animals, are on the front lines of this issue on a daily basis.

(PRWEB) June 29, 2012

The actual number of rescue groups that exist is very difficult to ascertain, but larger organized groups can help place hundreds of dogs and cats in a year. These rescue groups survive on donations from loyal followers and countless hours put in by volunteers. Often the animals taken in have suffered years of abuse or neglect and are in dire need of medical care. Once the dog or cat enters the care of the rescue, they are provided with full medical care, are spayed/ neutered, so that they will not continue to contribute to the overpopulation problem and are given the love and attention that most have never experienced. The animals are then placed into a loving foster home while they wait for a permanent home. The process to help these animals find loving homes requires vast amounts of donations, both money and human hours.
Big Fluffy Dog Rescue based in Tennessee is a GiftBasketsPlus.com staff favorite. The tireless efforts and compassion that this group provides to unwanted and neglected animals is amazing. It was a difficult decision for the staff to pick just one rescue to start a donation program with, but plans are being made to partner with more rescues in the future. The staff is hoping for the success of this partnership to not only raise awareness of animal overpopulation but also help raise donations that the animals desperately need.

GiftBasketsPlus.com has pledged to donate a percentage of sales to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue. The donation process is very simple, order any gift basket from GiftBasketsPlus.com, enter this code (BFDRD) at checkout and a percentage of that sale will be donated to the rescue. It is a feel good way to not only get a great gift but also to make a donation to the animals. If you would like to get more information or see the great dogs that are currently available for adoption, visit bigfluffydogs.com.

GiftBasketsPlus.com has been delivering the finest gift baskets since 1998. In addition to gourmet and birthday gift baskets, GiftBasketPlus.com also offers organic gift baskets, kosher baskets, spa gifts, corporate baskets, thank you gifts, romantic gift baskets and even pet gift baskets.

Hippity Hoppity it is Easter Time again ….

FILED IN Something Special 1 Comment

 
Easter is one of my favorite holidays, I mean what is not to like ? you have chocolate bunny’s, peeps, jelly beans, Easter parades and the list just goes on and on. If you are a chocolate lover like me than this holiday is a never ending sugar rush. While I was thinking about all the sweet treats that Easter has to offer, I did start to wonder about the origin of good ol Peter Cottontail. That life size hoping bunny with a basket full of eggs deserved a little research into his start as the symbol of Easter. So, after a little searching on the web I thought I would share his story.

The Easter Bunny symbol started with a pagan festival that worshiped the goddess of spring and fertility. Her name was Eastre and her earthly symbol was the rabbit. Since the rabbit is one of the most common symbols of fertility and rebirth it is not a surprise that this would be her symbol.

 

The next time we hear about Peter is around the 1500’s in German writings, it is in these writings that the bunny gets its use as a Easter symbol. The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany in the early 1800’s . They were not made from chocolate though, they were actually made from pastry and sugar.
German settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country around the 1700’s were the fist to introduce the Easter bunny into American folklore. The arrival of the “Oschter Haws” was considered “childhood’s greatest pleasure” The children believed that if they were good the “Oschter Haws” would lay a nest of colored eggs The children would build their nest in a secluded place in the home, the barn or the garden. Boys would use their caps and girls their bonnets to make the nests . The use of elaborate Easter baskets would come later as the tradition of the Easter bunny spread through out the country.

Today Peter and Easter go hand and hand, it would not be much of a holiday if I did not see his furry smiling face with a basket full of Easter goodies in his hand.

For all of you that are like me and just cannot wait for Peter to arrive this year, hop over to http://www.GiftBasketsPlus.com or call (800) 520-6657 today and pick up a Peter approved Easter gift baskets. They have all the best goodies to make this Easter holiday delicious.

GiftBasketsPlus.com to Create the World’s Largest Candy Cane

FILED IN Something Special No Comments

Company Plans to Shatter the Previous Record of 58 Feet by Making at Least a 63-Foot Peppermint Flavored Candy Cane Perfect for a Hungry Crowd…

Over the years, candy canes have become one of the most beloved and delicious symbols of
Christmas. The red and white peppermint-flavored candy sticks can be seen adorning Christmas
trees in homes, stores and malls and they are also enjoyed by adults and kids alike as a refreshing
minty treat.

The staff at GiftBasketsPlus.com enjoys candy canes too—in fact, the festive canes are featured
in many of the Christmas-themed gift baskets that the company features this time of year.
Recently, the Duluth, Georgia-based company decided to take their appreciation for the red and
white crooked-shaped candy and see if they could create the most super sized candy cane ever
made. Specifically, they want to go for broke when it comes to Christmas candy and get the
Guinness World record for the world’s largest candy cane.

Creating this massive minty marvel will be no easy feat—according to a news article, in 2001 a
gentleman named Paul Ghinelli earned world record status by creating a whopping 58-foot, 2 ¼
inch candy cane at a restaurant in Michigan.

The staff of Gift Baskets Plus is not worried—they know with the right combination of corn
syrup, sugar, peppermint flavoring, starch, red food color and maybe just a pinch of holiday gift baskets
magic, they can create a candy cane that is at least 63 feet tall.

The exact figures and costs to create the world’s largest candy cane are not in yet, but suffice it
to say it will take a combined total of dozens of pounds of ingredients and a substantial amount
of money to put together the colossal candy creation—especially when taking into account that
the average sized 5-inch candy cane weighs just a half ounce or so and has a mere 50 calories.

Calories—oh yeah! That’s another thing that the world record candy cane created by Gift
Baskets Plus will have plenty of. But no worries, everyone knows that Christmas calories don’t
count the same way as other calories during the year. Just to be on the safe side about this, the
staff plans to break up the future giant candy cane into scores of bite-sized pepperminty pieces
and share them with the members of the Duluth community during a party celebrating their
impressive feat.

While the employees of GiftBasketsPlus.com are busy gathering up their ingredients for the
world’s largest candy cane, they will still be hard at work assembling, packing and shipping the
finest holiday-themed Christmas gift baskets that are available online, just in time for holiday season.
