Reverse Advent – what a great idea

I was noodling through Facebook this morning reading silly posts when I came across this fabulous idea……a reverse advent calendar.

It’s really simple, you just grab a box or basket and put something in each day and then donate it to a family in need or a food bank or the homeless.

There’s a great charity close to where I live called Medway Street Angels, so I think my box will go to the homeless via them.

I’m desperately trying to think of what items to put in so any suggestions would be great.

My list so far:

tins of soup




pot noodles




baked beans

tinned tuna

tinned meat/curry/stew

If you do this – remember to get tins with a ring pull – a homeless person may not have a tin opener!
