“Reverse” Advent Calendar from Tee

Calling upon all my HnC friends and families…. I am hoping you can help me this upcoming Christmas by doing a “Reverse” Advent with your Children… (Don’t have children, no problem you can still help) This will teach them about giving vs receiving… The goal is – Get a box and each day put SOMETHING in a box instead of taking something out. This is a great project you can do with your kids while teaching them how to give to those who are less fortunate then they are……
I am hoping to get 1 box per family we will providing for Christmas. Can I count on you to do this??? I’m hoping to feed thirty families this year! I would need the filled, decorated box by Dec 23rd….
