How to do good by simply opening an advent calendar door...
This Christmas a unique advent calendar is arriving online to help people spread a little Christmas cheer. The Festive Favours Advent Calendar by youth volunteering website, vinspired.com, is a truly feel good affair as behind each door is a way to do a favour for others leading up to Christmas.
Favours can be as simple as making a colleague a cup of tea; but hidden away behind some of the doors are ways to make a real difference, for example, clicking a link that means a bowl of rice is donated to starving children in Africa. Every favour is entirely free to carry out, takes very little time, and will make a genuine difference to another person’s day.
To get involved in doing some Festive Favours this Christmas you simply need to go to www.vinspired.com/festivefavours and click on that day’s door on the Advent Calendar. Alternatively, the calendar can be downloaded as a widget for Facebook.
With the recession hanging over the nation this cash-strapped Christmas, doing a favour is a really great way to give a present for free and brighten up each day in December.
The Advent Calendar is just one part of vinspired.com’s Festive Favours campaign, which aims to spread the word that finding ways to volunteer is easier than ever before and inspire more young people to get involved.
vinspired.com will be launching a number of activities in the coming weeks, including the opportunity to join us in pedalling ten exercise bikes powering the Christmas trees in Manchester’s Hardman Square and at London’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland festival. And for those who don’t want to venture out into the cold, there’s a virtual version that means you can help power the trees from the comfort of your desk or home computer. To find out more and book a place go to http://www.vinspired.com.
