We all love a chocolate, beauty or even a cereal advent calendar, but this year I wanted to introduce you to my alternative Christmas Advent – 24 days of giving, where I share a different charity for you to donate to, buy gifts for your loved ones, or help a person or animal in need this festive season. Tis the season of goodwill and I thought it would be nice to share some fantastic causes each day until Christmas day, I’m not suggesting you do each one, give what you can, but maybe you might find a charity gift instead of the
