BrittanyBrittany Schiavone is the founder of Brittany’s Baskets of Hope, a nonprofit organization building baskets that welcome and encourage parents having a child with Down syndrome. Birrtany meticulously places different items (some donated, others purchased by Brittany) into large, wooden baskets, such as resource books, letters from herself, clothes, and various baby items.

About one in every 700 hundred babies are born with Down syndrome, according to the National Down Syndrome Society, and Brittany has made it her mission to help parents better understand what it means to have a newborn with the disability.

“I want everybody to know that babies born with Down syndrome really, really can do anything,” adds Schiavone.
