Today, on Facebook, I heard about the Reverse Advent calendar and wanted to share it with you- it’s not to late to start.
The idea is very simple- it is better to give than to receive. A typical advent calendar is used to celebrate the coming of Christmas and help you (and/or your child) count down the days until Christmas. It can often include a small toy/gift for each day. With the reverse advent calendar you give to someone else.
This is the perfect chance to donate the non-expired food you know you won’t eat, that pair of pants that have never been worn and still have the tags, or that toy you bought last year that is still in the box outside in the garage. (Please remember that during the holidays it is nice to donate new/unused items, and anytime you should donate items that are in good condition and you would like to receive yourself.)
