Since launching the UK’s first ever advent calendar for charity in 2019, social enterprise Advent of Change have raised an incredible £6,214 for Wood Green. With this amount, we can cover the average veterinary cost of almost 60 dogs, cats and small pets in need of urgent treatment and care. As an organisation that depends entirely on donations, we couldn’t be more grateful for the support of Advent of Change. These vital funds help to give homeless pets a second chance at happiness.
The charity advent calendar has been a huge success, with many people in the public eye singing its praises. It even 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 for the third year as they launch their next charity advent calendar, children’s charity advent and eco-friendly Christmas crackers in support of Wood Green. Beautifully redesigned for 2021, these stunning products will help you to brighten up the festive countdown, and Christmas dinner, whilst showing the power of giving. The Advent of Change range is available to buy online or at John Lewis & Partners.
