Advent Calendar 2020 Day 7: Reverse Advent Calendar

minden
Karácsony körül adni is jó dolog, nem csak kapni. Amellett, hogy fogy a csoki az adventi naptárból, mi magunk is készíthetünk adventi naptárt a rászorulóknak. Olvasd el, hogy hogyan! Még ma sem késő elkezdeni!

The festive season of Christmas is fast approaching, along with the many Christmassy traditions that come with it. While advent calendars, trees, wreaths, and all the other trimmings are a wonderful part of the experience, there is a way that you can adapt your celebrations to help others in need.

The reverse advent calendar is becoming increasingly popular. Instead of (or as well as) eating a piece of chocolate to mark the days that lead up to Christmas, the idea is to put aside an item each day to donate. The aim of making a reverse advent calendar is to help the less fortunate at Advent, at this special time of the year.

All you need to do to participate is to grab a box and, every day from the 1st to the 24th December, place one non-perishable item in it. At the end of the 24 days, you will be ready to give a box of gifts to people who desperately need your help.

Reverse advent calendars are a lovely way to support people who are struggling to afford the basics at Christmas time. Food banks really appreciate every single donation – it makes such a difference in the short-term

How to make a reverse advent calendar

The first task is to decide what you’re going to collect. You can either pick a themetoiletries, books, clothes, food, toys – or decide to do a mix.

Then, find a box or container that you can put your donations in each day. This can be a cardboard box, or a carefully and festively decorated calendar complete with glitter-covered doors, depending on your creative skills. After all, what matters is what’s inside.

Each day, choose an item to go in your reverse advent calendar. Then, on the final day take your collection to a church, a charity or someone in need.

You will definitely make someone very happy with your gift!
