Mamas for Mamas is about to get a big boost from the BC Wine Cider and Spirits Festival.

All profits from the sale of the wine organization’s subscription basket will be donated to Mamas for Mamas until April 15. The BC Basket consists of a provincial red wine, white wine, sparkling wine, beer, cider and spirit as well as other locally produced goodies. There are new offerings in the basket each month.

The basket sells for $149.98 per month.

“Mamas for Mamas is extremely grateful to this amazing community for including us in their giveback plans,” Mamas for Mamas national partnership co-ordinator Stephanie Horman said in a press release. “If it wasn’t for businesses such as thebcbasket.com, we would not be able to keep our poverty relief programs running.”

The basket for May will feature a Mother’s Day theme, which is appropriate given Mamas for Mamas helps those who supports mothers and caregivers in crisis.

“Supporting our industry and community throughout this pandemic has been our main goal since we partnered with thebcbasket.com in November of 2020,” BC Wine, Cider and Spirits Festival general manager Katherine Bramall said. “Donating 100% of the profits to Mamas for Mamas over the next couple of months gives us the ability to further support our community and a charity we respect so much.”
