This year, I’m taking part in a Reverse Advent!
Each day of December, pop an item or two in a box. On Christmas Eve, or when your box is full, donate it to someone in need.
All you need is:
- A cardboard box. (I have a lovely blue one suppled by Coop!)
- Items to donate. What you include may depend on who you’re planning to give it to. Some ideas are non-perishable food items like tins and packets, treats with the shorter shelf life, toothpaste, toothbrushes and other toiletries, clothing items like socks and underwear, first aid kits.
- And the willingness to give back this Christmas.
If you decide to get involved tweet using the #ReverseAdvent hashtag!
I’ve started today and have put in some chocolate biscuits, a couple of tins and toothpaste. I’ve looked up my local FoodBank to see what items they are in need of and I’ll be working from that.
