We’re Part of the Advent of Change Christmas Product Range

Self Help AfricaNews

As we say goodbye to summer and look forward to the festive season, Self Help Africa are pleased to announce that we’ve been selected by Advent of Change as part of their 2022 charity network.

This year, their flagship advent calendars are returning alongside brand-new products aiming to help even more charities. We’re proud to feature on the Premium Advent Calendar, the Children’s Advent Calendar and the Advent Candle - we’ll receive a donation for every sale of one of these products.

Premium Advent Calendar

We’re delighted to be included in the best-selling Premium Advent Calendar for the first time! Each day represents a £1 donation to each of the 24 amazing charities; local, national and international, giving a feel-good factor to your Christmas countdown! This premium advent calendar is completely plastic-free.

Kids Advent Calendar

Designed with the whole family in mind, the bright and colourful Children’s Charity Advent Calendar uses child-friendly language and hand-picked charities - including Self Help Africa - to help all ages understand the power of giving. Includes a fun mini game to add festive joy to the Christmas countdown.

Charity Advent Candle

We’ve also been included in Advent of Change’s luxury scented candle, made using 100% natural wax with no parabens and styled with a beautifully frosted finish. When lit, the candle burns down to reveal hidden numbers while a complementary booklet gives the user information about each of the 24 included charities.

About Advent of Change

Award-winning social enterprise Advent of Change began with founder Kristina’s idea to reverse the consumerist nature of Christmas and bring back the giving spirit.

Its best-selling charity advent calendar replaces plastic-filled chocolate calendars with a daily donation to 24 incredible causes. The pioneering concept has captured the hearts of many across the UK, and has raised over £700,000 for 100 different charities since 2018.

With new research from the Charities Aid Foundation estimating that 4.9m fewer people donated to charity in 2022, the non-profit organisation hopes to spread the spirit of giving more than ever this Christmas - encouraging those who can, to swap chocolate for charity this year.

Committed to changing lives, Advent of Change founder, Kristina Salceanu, hopes to raise over £100,000 in 2022. Kristina said:

 “Each of our wonderful products provides the perfect way to give back to so many charities in one go, and gift someone, or yourself, the chance to really make a difference this festive season.”

 The Advent of Change range is available to buy online at adventofchange.com and John Lewis & Partners.
