This may not be a new idea, but I liked it when I saw The Foodbank of Waterloo Region Tweet it out yesterday, so we started a reverse advent calendar. It’s simple: just put something into a box each day, then donate it for Christmas. So since my daughter was so excited about getting to start her own advent calendar on Dec 1st, we told her that in order to get her chocolate each day, she’d have to make a donation (of food from our cupboard). It’s teaching her to give and it’s a neat way for her to earn her daily treat too. You can start one too!
Let me know if you’re doing it. Find me on Twitter @BradFromDave
