CHICKS is delighted to be supported by this brand new, revolutionary charity advent calendar, which invites customers to give back as they count down to Christmas this year - we think it's a wonderful way to support lots of brilliant charities - and to really make a positive impact.
Each door on the advent calendar reveals a different donation to one of 24 incredible charities, spread across a number of causes, including children, animals, the third world, healthcare, refugees and the environment. The brainchild of Kristina Salceanu, 85% of the sale price will go directly to charity.
Each day represents a £1 donation and describes how that gift could be used to give the recipient a ‘feel-good feeling’ each day, and see exactly how they've helped to change the world for the better, from feeding the homeless to protecting our oceans.
Kristina Salceanu, Founder of Advent of Change, said: “Advent of Change began with one simple idea: to give the gift of giving at Christmas. And that small idea has already taken on a life of its own. Here at Advent of Change we have captured the imagination of so many people already, and we really do believe that this simple concept has the power to change the world.”
She continued: “It was really important to me to ensure we included charities that would be personally meaningful to everybody, which is why we’ve worked hard to include organisations across a wide range of sectors. The response so far has been staggering and I can't wait for the funds raised to start changing the lives of those who need it most. We are extremely proud to be representing these incredible charities.”
A massive thank you from us to Advent of Change for the incredible support!
