Have you heard about reverse advent calendars?

3 years ago by Laura

December is just around the corner and you might be getting excited 😀 about opening the doors of your chocolatey advent calendar 🗓️ each day but, as it’s Giving Tuesday today 🙌, we wanted inspire you to create a reverse advent calendar instead 🤔!

Instead of scoffing 😋 a bit of chocolate 🍫 every day, a reverse calendar encourages participants to fill an empty cardboard box 📦 with a different non-perishable product each day which can then be donated to people who need it on Christmas Eve through an official charity 🎁.

Items can be anything from pasta 🍝 to bubblebath 🛀 through to books 📚, games 🎲 and clothes 👖.

Charities collecting reverse advent calendars include Foodbank, Raleigh International and Changing Lives.
