About Us:
The Philly Basket Brigade
In 2006, Paul and Stacey Martino founded the Philly Basket Brigade, a chapter of the International Basket Brigade, to feed families in the suburban Philadelphia area. As parents with young children Paul and Stacey are passionate about helping other parents experience the joy and the pride of cooking their own Thanksgiving feast in their own homes.
“As a mother, I feel compelled to help another mother have the ability to prepare her Thanksgiving feast for her kids. I want her to make her Grandmother’s gravy recipe, and her Auntie’s famous sweet potatoes. I want her kids to mix up their own batch of cookies and lick the frosting off the spoon when the cake is done! That’s Thanksgiving to me and I want that for every parent. For that reason, the Philly Basket Brigade does not give out prepared food. Groceries are the special key! It’s the groceries that allow that mother to make her feast with her kids that whole day, with the house smelling delicious as the Parade plays on the TV. That’s Thanksgiving to me…and hopefully this year, thousands of people in the Philly area will have the same experience because of the donors and volunteers from the Philly Basket Brigade!”

The first year, Paul and Stacey fed 2 families! Since then, every year the Philly Basket Brigade has grown.
Now, the Philly Basket Brigade feeds hundreds of families every year and keeps growing!
“The Philly Basket Brigade is a FOR KIDS-BY KIDS charity! All our baskets are decorated by our “little” volunteers (preschoolers) and our bigger kids pack the baskets with the food! Then families head out together to deliver the baskets! As parents it’s really important to Paul and I to create a safe giving experience for our children and all the kids in the community. We want our kids to have a fun and great Giving experience and feel that they absolutely can make a difference in another kids life….no matter how young they are today!” 
– Stacey Martino
Paul and Stacey are also the founders of www.RelationshipDevelopment.Org. They believe that it only takes ONE partner to transform a relationship…any relationship! Today, Paul and Stacey are blessed to empower tens of thousands of people around the world to transform their relationships, save their marriage, reignite their passion and create their unshakable love and unleashed passion... all in a way that they do not need their partner to get on board in order to get the results they want in their relationship! They live their life by design in Bucks county with their two amazing kids Jake and Grace!

The Philly Basket Brigade is part of the Anthony Robbins International Basket Brigade, which is built on a simple notion: one small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. What began more than 30 years ago as Anthony Robbins’ individual effort to feed families in need, is now providing baskets of food and clothing for an estimated 2 million people annually in countries all over the world.
