I saw this amazing idea on Pinterest a while back and knew I needed to act on it.
Reverse Advent – instead of the traditional Advent of opening little windows with treats the concept it to put an item a day through Christmas and then to donate it.
Suggestions for baskets include laundry hampers, gym bags, decorate boxes, actual baskets, suitcase – what you use may depend on what you plan to fill it with and who you are donating it to.
I am personally doing two baskets – one for a local women’s shelter and one for a pet rescue.
Suggestions for themed baskets may include gifts for a food pantry, a homeless shelter, a family, the red cross, a local community center that needs activity supplies, even your favorite school teachers(school).
I am sure there are many more ideas for baskets and who to support this holiday season.
I know this will be a new tradition for us.
Sometimes you find really great ideas on Pinterest!
