One specific project is featured behind each of the 24 calendar doors. Every year, we carefully and personally select these projects. Only those that are able to convincingly articulate a specific desired impact and how they will achieve it are selected. In addition, the organizations must fulfill our transparency requirements. This provides you with the assurance that your donation is used appropriately. Each time you open another door, you see where and to whom your money goes, and you can experience the joy of having performed another good deed. In our online calendar, you can also open one door every day, and you will receive pictures and detailed information about the supported projects.
The goal of this Advent Calendar is to make donations possible that make sense and to make good deeds a reality. Every $ funds something concrete – such as planting three trees. A donation of $24 helps to implement exactly 24 projects. For a higher donation each action will be implemented multiple times!

For every $ donated…
… 75 cents goes directly to the projects to fund the implementation of a specific good deed. We verify how the funds are used and what impact they have based on receipts and reports we receive from the organisations twelve months after the donation season.
… 25 cents goes towards covering the cost of preparation, production and promotion of the calendar. This includes all costs for preparing and implementing project selection, printing the calendar as well as outreach.
We also demand transparency from our partner organisations who are required to provide us with their by-laws and annual reports as well as detailed information on how they use the donated funds. In addition, most organisations are aligned with principles of the Initiative for a Transparent Civil Society.
