It's the second week of December and most people will be in the middle of opening their advent calendars. They'll be eating a little piece of chocolate to celebrate coming a day closer to Christmas. But we're starting a new type of advent...
This year we are not going to do what most people do with their advent calendars. James and I have decided to do our advent a little different this year. Instead of opening a window of our advent calendar and taking a chocolate, we have decided to give something back. We have got ourselves couple of big cardboard boxes. Everyday of advent we have been putting a small gift for a homeless person into it. So far in our boxes we have things like
- Sanitary Towels
- Antibacterial Wipes/Sanitizer
- Fruit Bars/Chocolate
Why don’t you join us if you would like to? I can't begin to tell you how good you will feel for helping out the homeless. An added bonus is that you will benefit from your act of kindness too!
It's such a worthwhile cause and even the smallest donation will help. James and I will be giving our boxes to a friend in Southampton. He will be taking them to the homeless shelter on the 24th December.
If you decide to collect an Advent box for the Homeless then please take it to your local Homeless shelter and they will distribute it for you.
Around 1 in 5 homeless people have pets, so giving a can of dog food would also be beneficial. Just one item a day will be a big help. Whether it is something you already have in your cupboard or something they can use to make themselves warmer and more comfortable, you will be transforming their lives.
