The Giving Calendar
The Giving Calendar
What is it?
This advent-style calendar counts down the days to Christmas by spending a little time each day focusing on one of twelve areas of service. Watch a video about the calendar here. Each daily devotional discusses specific real-world needs, what God says about the topic, why it is important, and what you can do to help. These topics of need include animals, children, church, community, environment, elderly, family, friends, health, needy, neighbors, and safety. An accompanying digital resource guide features 24 daily activities with ideas on how you can do good each day. It also includes quick activities for days when you have limited time. Along the journey, you will find that by giving to others, you will receive a much greater gift, a clearer picture of the true character of God and His love for all.
How does it work?
Your Kit will arrive with 24 Daily Devotional cards and accompanying dated envelopes. Because some day’s activities require more involvement than others, you can use our printable planning calendar to make a schedule that will work for your family. Slide cards into dated envelopes and display in your home to create a simple, modern advent calendar.
Every day your family will open the day’s card, and read the devotional thought. Each thought address one of twelve areas of service. After completing the days devotional, use the accompanying digital resource guide for tutorials and printables to do good in each area of service.
We understand that life can get busy, and you may not have time for a more involved activity every day, so each day also includes a Quick Activity. This activity requires no additional materials and can be done in just a few minutes while still making a big impact for good.
Use the included walnut wood block to display the day’s devotional card with envelope to use as a calendar as well as keep the day’s need at the forefront of your mind.
