Advent calendars are one of the best things about the lead up to Christmas, particularly as you can now choose from a wide range of luxurious, quirky and personalised options for yourself. 

But Christmas is really about giving, and what better way to give than to those who need it most. 

Advent of Change is a UK-based non-profit organisation with a mission: to create beautiful everyday products that make a positive impact on the world.

They've just launched their Advent of Change Advent Calendar at John Lewis, so that you can join in the mission and help fund multiple charities with a single purchase, while also raising awareness of their amazing work.

We can't think of any better way to get into the festive spirit.

Beautifully updated for 2021, with all-new charity donations, behind each door of this best-selling calendar is a new recipient who will benefit from your generosity, from protecting our oceans to providing food and medicine to those in need.

Each of the 24 doors represents a £1 donation and will tell you how your contribution could be used. (John Lewis & Partners)

Each of the 24 doors represents a £1 donation and will tell you how your contribution could be used.

There’s a huge list of charities (the full list of which you can find on the John Lewis product description) that are supported by the calendar including Alzheimer's Research UK, Marie Curie, Think Equal and BBC Children in Need.

£1 doesn't sound like much, but buy a calendar for your whole family, or even your friends too, and suddenly you're in double-figure donations each day. 

Plus, the calendar comes beautifully presented and makes a thoughtful gift to those people who have everything and so are a pain to buy presents for. 

We know that it isn't as immediately tasty as a chocolate Santa behind each door, but we're planning on stocking up on the sweet treats separately. Win, win!
