Reverse Advent Calendar
Christmas is about joy and hope, so why not bring a little joy and hope to people in need every day until Christmas with our Reverse Advent Calendar.
COVID-19 has created great need across our society, so if you can contribute, only even in a small way, your assistance will help support worthwhile charities and people doing it tough this Christmas.
Getting the kids involved is a great way to help them think about others in need and to be involved in this lovely process of giving. Your children can even donate a portion of their pocket money which can then be donated online.
Obviously, you can create your own giving calendar or borrow some ideas and mix it up as you need. The process is quite simple – just grab a box, place it under your Christmas tree and every day, add one more thing from your Reverse Advent Calendar to the box which can then be donated.
