Gingerbread Baskets for FamilyLink

Every year around the holidays, CGA has a design competition within the office to benefit a local charity.  This year we worked in teams of two to create gingerbread 'baskets'.  Each team was given a box and foam core board to create a gingerbread house with an open top, so that it could be filled with goodies and wrapped like a gift basket.  We filled the gingerbread baskets with family-fun gifts and necessities (movies, popcorn, games, baby items etc.) and donated them to foster families at FamilyLink, a non-profit licensed foster care and adoption agency that works directly with Child Protective Services to find homes for children who have been abused, neglected or exploited.  We had so much fun with this project, and each gingerbread basket turned out wonderfully unique and fun!
