5 Easy Ways to Give Back this Christmas

Five of the easiest ways to give back this Christmas

We all know how good it feels to give back or do something good for someone in need, and what better time to do this than the festive season?

Christmas is the Season for Giving back and here we have put together 5 of our favourite ideas for giving back this festive season, plus a few extra fun and super simple ideas you could easily do this December…

#1 Reverse advent calendar

Starting on 1st December, put a non-perishable food item in a box each day and on Christmas Eve, donate it to a food bank or a family in need.

#2 Toy or Book Clear-out

This is a great way to teach your kids about giving back, and give them a sense of gratitude for what they have, by the simple realisation that other children don’t have all that they do.

Encourage your child to choose an old toy or book that they no longer play with each day starting on 1st December, and have them put in into a box. You can take them with you and together you can donate it to a needy Children’s Home on Christmas Eve. Let them learn from an early age the joy that comes with giving to someone less fortunate than themselves.

#3 Cupboard Clear-out

Each day from December 1st, find an old item of clothing that you no longer wear and put it into a box. On Christmas Eve, donate it to someone needy. Alternatively,  do a single wardrobe clean up in one go to find the items you no longer wear and put them into your donation box.

#4 Spare a thought for a four-legged friend

Each day from 1st December, put a can or bag of pet food into a box and on Christmas Eve, donate it to your nearest Animal Shelter.

#5 Shop for Christmas Gifts from our Pretty Silver ‘Christmas Selection’

Buy from our Pretty Silver ‘Christmas Selection’ and we will donate 10% of proceeds to Project Hope. Find other local businesses who support needy charities and support them with your Christmas gift and food shopping, thus allowing them to continue the good work that they do for the less fortunate in your community.

 And here are a few bonus suggestions we’ve put together for you…. 

We hope you like our list of suggestions. And if you don’t we’re pretty sure you can find some of your own ways to get involved and give back.

Why stop when December ends? Let the JOY of Giving flow through to the new year, because truer words than this may never have been spoken: ‘tis better to give than to receive.
