Share the Joy this holiday season by reaching out to those in need in your community. A big thanks to World Market for sponsoring this post!
One of the very best things that has come out of blogging is the opportunity I have had to work with great companies. Great companies like World Market, who I am really excited to be partnering with on their Share the Joy campaign today.
Share the Joy is all about finding opportunities in your community to help others, so I was really excited to have the opportunity to join in. World Market provided me with $200 worth of gift cards and asked me to put them to good use in my community. I found a local charity that collects “Bear Necessity Bins” full of basic home items – dishes, towels, bedding etc. – that will be donated to foster kids turning 18 who will be heading out on their own. As soon as I saw this opportunity, I knew it was where my gift cards were going. I couldn’t think of a better way to use them.
I got in contact with the charity and got a list of all the items needed for one of the bins – sheets, blanket, towel, pillow, dishes, silverware, can opener, cups, and a teddy bear. I love that I was able to get nearly everything on the list from World Market – even that cute teddy bear! They have everything from kitchen essentials to Christmas toys and stocking stuffers.
Now I just need to box it all up in a bin and take it down to to the charity. I am excited to get all these goodies to their new home.
