Horizon of Hope

By now, some of you are aware of my love of Longaberger. For those of you that are unaware, Longaberger is an American based company that started out with handmade baskets.
40 years later, it’s still mostly about the baskets, handmade right here in Ohio, but today they feature pottery, home decor and as of last September, their new line of ceramic cookware, Flameware.
The pottery was made for many years overseas, but they recently opened a factory in Buffalo, NY where the pottery will now be made.
But I digress! This is all about their Horizon of Hope line. For the last 16 years, Longaberger has featured items depicting hope for those with breast cancer. Since they joined hands with the American Cancer Society, they have raised over 15 million dollars. Every year they release a basket set, available in the traditional basket colors and whitewashed/pink. They’ve recently added items such as reusable market bags, potpourri, travel mugs and more.
My favorite part about these products is that they are beautiful, functional and they give you an opening to discuss what is a very important issue. Breast cancer affects a great number of women and the search for a cure is important! This month is the only month the basket is available during the year and through the 16th of this month they have specials going on do several items. Head on over and check them out. It’ll give you a chance to be a part of something amazing and you get something, besides that feel good feeling, out of it!
