Just like your daily gives, your Reverse Advent Calendar starts with one of the 365give giving categories – people, planet or animal. We have a few ideas to get you started this December and have added some daily giving suggestions. Ready? Lets see if any of these Reverse Advent Calendar ideas resonate with you!
I have a soft spot for seniors, a really big soft spot. Weekly I make sure that I do two daily gives that benefits a senior I know, or in some cases don’t know. The joy I get from listening to stories seniors have, or helping them with simple tasks that have become difficult, to bringing over homemade cookies and banana bread is immense. Seeing the smile on my seniors faces when someone has taken the time for coffee, or just drop by to deliver my fresh baked goods makes my day every time. For me it is natural to think of seniors for my Reverse Advent Calendar.
Use these ideas to fill your Reverse Advent Calendar box that can be delivered to a local seniors home.
My kids this year have chosen this option for our family Reverse Advent Calendar. Here are some great ideas that will get you started!
