Baskets of Blessing is a growing community project based in Queenstown providing support to those in physical, emotional and circumstantial crisis. Baskets full of donated gifts and surprises are carefully hand-filled and sent anonymously to those in need.

Set up by local Queenstown resident Tam Schurmann, the project provides support and love for when words just aren't enough. Recent media about Tam here:

Baskets of Blessing now also supplies nutritious family meals through our "Let's Eat!" project for those needing practical support.

Basket of Blessings works year-round, but at Christmas time there is a greater need to reach out to those who may be facing their first Christmas without a loved one, or those who are unwell, depressed, struggling financially, nursing sick loved ones or lonely.

There is no government funding for Baskets of Blessings. It is purely run off kind donations from the community and heartfelt New Zealanders like yourself. Please help us reach those going through a difficult time and make a positive difference in their lives!

If you know of someone who you would like to nominate for a basket, please visit our website

Thank you for helping us to bring a bit of light to those in dark times.

Posted by: Baskets of Blessings

We have had a large number of nominations for people in need this Christmas and would be grateful for any donation to help us cover the costs of packaging, items for the baskets and deliveries. Its heartbreaking to read what people are going through - loss of loved ones, stillbirths, divorce, a dire diagnosis, financial strain...PLEASE help us show these people a little love and care to help them through!
