I would assume they’re looking for money…like the donation basket being passed around in church services maybe?

But since I’m a brat and HATE when people ask for money (even if they try to be clever about it) I would bring a card with a poem about love in it and not give them a dime. That’s just me though…

Wow way to be cryptic about what you want…….

I really don’t even know if It is safe to call that asking for money?

Since when is money a basket of love? hahaha ohhh goodnes

I don’t have the slightest idea…usually money is considered a “gift?”

Maybe it will be a place to donate to their favorite charity? (Yeah, I’m being optimistic here.)

Tie up some condoms and lube and (anonymously) leave them a note for ‘lots of safe love’ in their love basket 😉

They must have thought long and hard to come up with a euphemism for “we want cash”.

@indibee: and a Barry White CD for good measure…

But yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s asking for cash.

So, I googled and found that “Baskets of Love” is a project where gift baskets are taken into the dressing rooms of strip clubs and to prostitutes.

Do you think they want you to donate?  😉

@Melini: Oh golly – if they were my friends I would totally ask…and be all innocent about it like I REALLY thought they were donating to hookers instead of receiving wedding gifts

I don’t have a problem with people asking for cash, but that “saying” doesn’t make any sense. At all.

In fact, if PPs didn’t immediately jump on “they must be asking for money”, I would still be sitting here going “wait, what?” I honestly would assume that it was a hippie-ish, poorly written way to say “we don’t want gifts, just your presence!”

@baliahi1029: would you, yourself, get in the basket then? It’s the receptacle that makes me thinking they’re asking for carb…
