It’s almost that time of the year! When children and adults alike eagerly await that one day in December where families and friends come together for a day of love, celebration, and happiness. When the weather gets colder, but hearts grow warmer. It’s the season of giving and has thought of a great way for you to give back to seniors in your community this holiday season.

Most of us are familiar with the traditional advent calendar; a countdown from the start of December to Christmas day. You’ve likely seen chocolate advent calendars or those construction paper chain countdowns, but the team at has put together a new kind of advent calendar…

Let me introduce you to’s 25 Days of Senior Giving! Download it here.

Each day in December will involve doing something kind for a senior or the seniors in your community. Being that it is the “Season of Giving”, what better way to give back this year!

We encourage you to share each day’s good deed on social media so that others will see the good you’re doing and will be encouraged to join in on the fun. Please hashtag #25DaysOfSeniorGiving on each of your posts and the team will pick our favorite submission and share it on our Facebook page for the world to see!
