Fill My Basket is a Oklahoma City based non-profit that specializes in random acts of kindness by buying groceries around the metro to help low income seniors and families along with inspiring people to be kind and to pass that kindness forward! “Paying It Forward – One Basket at a Time!”
Fill My Basket was inspired by a viral video that both Matthew Danuser and Disty Simpson saw and it got them thinking … Why can’t we do these random acts of kindness right here in our beloved OKC City? Both being creative thinkers & doers … They begin implementing this concept right here in OKC along with a few helpers jumping aboard they figured it out and Fill My Basket was born locally!
