Advent Of Change

Tuesday 03 November 2020

Since launching the UK’s first ever advent calendar for charity in 2019, social enterprise Advent of Change have raised an incredible £1,670 for Wood Green.


With this amount, we can cover the average total cost of caring for at least two pets in need. As an organisation that depends entirely on donations, we couldn’t be more grateful for their support. These vital funds help to bring homeless pets into our care and give them a second chance at happiness.

Last year the calendar caught the attention of the UK’s Prime Minister, who gave the enterprise an award in recognition of their outstanding contribution to charity and the community. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, the initiative also attracted endorsements from household names including Richard Branson and Joanna Lumley.

Founder, Kristina Salceanu, had these kind words to say about the partnership with Wood Green:

“Advent of Change aims to create a world that is fair, equal and sustainable. As an animal lover (and dog-parent) myself, I couldn't imagine not including them in our work, and was blown away by what the team at Wood Green do. We're delighted to be working together to make a positive impact again this year.”

We’re excited to join the Advent of Change movement again in 2020, as they launch the next advent calendar and two brand new products – Christmas crackers and an annual calendar. Here’s hoping it’s another success!
