World Market has a sweepstakes/campaign going on right now that is just amazing! The objective is to drive brand awareness for Cost Plus World Market and to give back to the community by giving away over $40k prizes. I was given a challenge to give back to the community this holiday season. I was recently provided with $200 in Gift Cards to make this challenge possible. My husband and I chose to give back to the nurses in Labor and Delivery that took care of us when we lost our daughter, Aubrey. You can read more about our story via the Anencephaly Awareness tab above. They took such great care of us. Linda, a sweet nice nurse specifically. She handled our Aubrey so gently. Several nurses came in and let me cry on their shoulder when they came in to check on us. What they do is beautiful. They have their joyful moments in helping a life come into this world, but the moment like with us- helping families cope when one is lost.
We had a blast browsing ideas for Gift Baskets at World Market. They even have an area a the right of the store to choose baskets and filling. I chose a basket that cost about $25.
We even found pink and blue filling to go with the theme! World Market has their Holiday Stuff out for Christmas! This made shopping so fun!
They have so many ideas for Unique Gifts too! We went "window shopping" to try and figure out what all of the nurses would like in a basket! We found so much! My husband kept getting ideas as well!We filled our buggy up! I had to carry around the basket because it was too big to fit!
I also had a $10 Reward on my World Market Explorer account. Which I wanted to remind you, check that often! You never know what kind of coupons there will be!
We headed home and were super excited to put our basket together! Below you can see everything that we bought! I wanted to share in three different pictures so that I can link you to purchase these items yourself if you wanted to!
Haribo Mini Gold Bears, "12 Days of Christmas" Assorted Biscuits Gift Tin , Candy Pretzel Rods, Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels, Candy Coated Pretzel Delights, Holiday Salt Water Taffy, a few small bags of classic candy.

Putting everything together was a BLAST!!
Here is the card that that we bought. It was perfect for the moment! Perfect and means so much without having to say much!
And the finished product!
We waited till the following day to deliver, because it was so late. We got right up and dressed. Headed right up to the Hospital. It is only a short drive from where we live!
The basket was so heavy! I almost fell over!!The nurses loved it! I am so happy that we were able to give back to our community! It was for a great cause too!
