Now this is the best idea for Christmas I’ve seen in a long while:
If you can’t see the image the idea is simple. Start the Reverse Advent Calendar when you start your regular Advent Calendar.
Grab a basket or box, and every day leading up to Christmas, add something useful to the box (tinned food, cleaning stuff, toys, whatever you think would be welcome).
Then, on Christmas Eve (or even a day or two before), donate the entire basket and contents to your local charity.
This year, make someone else’s Christmas a little bit brighter.
