About the event

A reverse advent calendar is a charitable initiative that flips the traditional concept of an advent calendar, which is typically used to count down the days to Christmas. Instead of receiving something each day, participants in a reverse advent calendar give something each day. CareNet’s Reverse Advent Calendar is facilitated in November so that the food collected can be distributed in December to families experiencing hardship.

The reverse advent calendar is an excellent way to foster a sense of community, compassion, and social responsibility during the festive period, reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas by giving back to others and whilst also increasing food resources to food relief programs during a period that typically see demand for food support dramatically increase.

Through this registration you can participate one of 3 ways:

  • You can register to receive a Reverse Advent Box (these will be available in October from a number of places in the community).
  • You can opt to participate by donating the price of a Reverse Advent Calendar (this donation is tax deductible).
  • You can opt to sponsor a number of Reverse Advent Boxes. (This year we will have beautiful, festive boxes printed. Community groups and businesses are welcome to assist us to cover the cost of the boxes and we in turn will put your branding on the box in return - this donation is also tax deductible).

Thank you for joining us in supporting vulnerable families this Christmas period.
