Advent Calendars with Meaning
Unicef Advent Calendar - RRP £25
Christmas can often get overwhelming - the frivolous excess that surrounds the season bothers me greatly to be honest. There are lots of things we could all do to help others. If you are looking for a meaningful advent calendar try this paper one from Unicef. At a cost of £25 your purchase acts as a donation that could make a real difference. You could fund 17 doses of measles vaccine to protect children from this deadly disease or buy books for school children or life-saving food. I can't think of a better Christmas gift.
