Advent Acts of Kindness

Advent Acts of Kindness


Jen from Mum in the Madhouse has come up with a wonderful idea about doing advent slightly different this year,  Advent Act of kindness. We usually do a few of them

  • Donate to local food Bank
  • Donate to a local hostel

But we have also said we will

  • Donate more books to school
  • Donating teddy bears to a tombola to raise funds for charity
  • Donate Jumpers to the homeless and less fortunate than ourselves (you can help also, look Here)

Some of these promises aren’t suitable for little man on his own but I will see how many he can do with and without my aid and for each one I will donate £1 to our charity fundraiser, so here’s hoping he can do a huge amount of them.

We will track our progress for you to watch.

I have added the full list at the bottom of the page in case image is to small.
