Open up to change this year

Christmas is coming – and advent is sooner! As we say goodbye to summer and look forward to the festive season, we are delighted to let you know that we are featuring again this year in the Advent of Change non-profit charity range which is set to offer something far more meaningful than just sparkle this Christmas.


Award-winning social enterprise, Advent of Change, offers a range of festive products including crackers, baubles, candles and its best-selling charity advent calendar, which replaces chocolate or plastic-filled advent calendars with a daily donation to 24 incredible causes, including Carers Worldwide.


Carers Worldwide will feature in the advent calendar, the children’s advent calendar, and the advent candle. You can find out more about each of these below.


The pioneering concept has captured the hearts of many across the UK and has raised over £700,000 for 100 different charities since 2018, aiding a variety of causes from protecting our oceans, to providing medicines and support to those in need.


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.


Carers Worldwide founder, Anil Patil, commented: “We are delighted to be a part of Advent of Change again this year. What a brilliant way for people to celebrate the spirit of giving at Christmas. The funds raised by everyone buying these incredible products will make a real difference to the lives of the unpaid family carers we support.”


Committed to changing lives, Advent of Change founder, Kristina Salceanu, hopes to raise over £100,000 in 2022. Kristina said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing back our classic advent calendars, and our charity family of products for 2022.


Now more than ever, amazing charities are doing life-changing work to aid those in need, and we know it can be hard to decide on just one to support – which is where our Advent of Change concept all started! No matter which you choose, 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.”
