It’s never too early for the C-word – and as we say goodbye to summer and look forward to the festive season, a non-profit charity range is set to offer something far more meaningful than just sparkle this Christmas.
Award-winning social enterprise, Advent of Change, has announced the long-awaited return of its festive charity range for 2022 – including its best-selling charity advent calendar, which replaces chocolate or plastic-filled advent calendars with a daily donation to 24 incredible causes.
The pioneering concept has captured the hearts of many across the UK and has raised over £700,000 for 100 different charities since 2018.
With new research from the Charities Aid Foundation estimating that 4.9m fewer people donated to charity in 2022, the non-profit organisation hopes to spread the spirit of giving more than ever this Christmas – encouraging those who can, to swap chocolate for charity this year.
The inspiring charity-focused collection has now expanded to include an innovative range of products with unique ways to donate.
Hoping to raise over £100,000 in 2022, Advent of Change founder, Kristina Salceanu said:
“We’re thrilled to be bringing back our classic advent calendars, and our charity family of products for 2022.
“It’s been an incredibly tough couple of years for many of our charity partners, and we know so many people will be feeling the impact of the next few months with today’s challenging economic climate.
“Now more than ever, amazing charities are doing life-changing work to aid those in need, and we know it can be hard to decide on just one to support – which is where our Advent of Change concept all started!
“No matter which you choose, each of our wonderful products provides the perfect way to give back to so many charities in one go, and gift someone, or yourself, the chance to really make a difference this festive season.”
