Our Inspiration

Thriving Infants & Children
Around the World


In 2019, Spike Productions, an established web-video company since 2002, launched the Basketful Relief Project (BRP) to write and publish beautiful children’s books to support famine and crisis relief efforts at home and abroad. With each purchase, the BRP currently donates ten percent to reputable organizations supporting crisis relief. The goal however, is to increase this percent amount as more books sell, and ultimately establish a legacy foundation for this cause.

We hope these books not only grace your coffee table as classics, but inspire your young reader to engage in them time and again.

The BRP mission is twofold:

  • To feed young hearts and minds by writing award-winning children’s books with a message.
  • To feed young tummies by supporting crisis relief efforts at home and abroad with proceeds from book sales.

We invite you to browse our children’s books, here.


Spike Productions’ BRP has selected to support the Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) in Boulder, CO. Established over a century ago, EFAA is a locally operated community safety net for families in times of need.

We invite you to donate directly to EFFA, here.

PARTNERING LOCALLY with the Lyons Vet Clinic, Lyons, CO

Since 2022, the BRP is partnering with the local Lyons Vet Clinic where 10% of book-signing sales support their charity fund for vet care for the pets of families displaced by fire or other crisis events.

We invite you to donate directly to the Lyons Vet Clinic charity fund, here.

DONATING INTERNATIONALLY, Save the Children Yemen (started in 2019)

Spike Productions’ BRP is currently donating to Save the Children famine relief efforts in Yemen and has started a BRP Save the Children Yemen famine relief fundraising page. This is an ongoing fundraiser. After meeting a goal of $3,000 the page will reset and start again.

Yemen in Crisis

Embroiled in civil conflict since 2011 and civil war since 2015, Yemen is experiencing the world’s worst man-made humanitarian disaster. As war continues, the UN says it is on the brink of the world’s worst famine in 100 years. Twenty-two million people are in urgent need of help, half of them children who are facing a triple threat – hunger, disease and bombs on a daily basis. Save the Children estimates more than 100 young children are dying from extreme hunger every single day.

Save the Children (STC) is on the ground in Yemen, working to help the most vulnerable access food, healthcare and education.

  • STC has treated over 150,000 children under five suffering from malnutrition and is supporting health facilities and mobile health and nutrition teams in some of the hardest to reach areas.
  • STC is supporting over 150 health facilities to provide life-saving primary healthcare, and responding to outbreaks of cholera and diphtheria.
  • STC is distributing food to young children, pregnant women and breastfeeding moms.
