Let's gift smiles, together.


A Nonprofit Gift Basket Foundation

Baskets from JoJo is dedicated to gifting care baskets to cancer patients. Our vision is to bring a smile to a stranger's face by reminding them that they are brave, loved, and not alone. 


Baskets from JoJo was created to honor the beautiful life and caring spirit of Nancy Jo Weinberger. Through this foundation, we keep Nancy's selfless and gracious soul shining bright.





Words from our recipients 

"Thank you so much to everyone involved in this wonderful project[...] "

"My husband is a cancer patient who was receiving chemo and treatment at the U of MN Masonic Clinic for the past 7 months. On one of our many visits there the nursing staff presented us with one of your baskets. We can't tell you how that made our day! As many of you know when you are actively receiving treatment for cancer your days begin to run together and you often feel that your days consist of medical appts. and medical conversation and not much else, so when someone comes along and surprises you with a basket of goodies and leisure supplies it brightens your day. Thank you so much to everyone involved in this wonderful project that honors a women who herself fought a battle with this cruel disease, what a wonderful way to honor a lovely women's life. Keep up the great work!"

"[...] your gift added sunshine and warmth to my day."

"Thank you all so very much for your gift basket. It so brightened my day. It was so wonderful to check-in for my appointment and receive your gift!!

Each day is a blessing and your gift added sunshine and warmth to the day."

"[...] your basket, especially your message, bolstered our hope and spirits. "

"My husband is currently undergoing treatment at Frauenshuh. When we arrived yesterday, we were so surprised to receive this lovely basket of goodies. We didn’t get very good news yesterday and your basket, and especially your message, bolstered our hope and spirits. It’s wonderful to know there are people like you out there who care, even for those you don’t know. Just wanted you to know how much we appreciated your thoughtfulness."

"It is people like you that make patients smile."

"My husband brought me to the U of M Oncology. My appointment for my infusion was 3:00. I needed a couple of things done and it took longer than expected. My nurse came around the corner with this big basket. She told me it was for me. I told her I did not need it and she said no it is for you. I want to thank you so much, you made my day. It is people like you that make patients smile. Thank you so much."
