Christians called to sign up to Advent Calendar with a difference

by Donna Birrell

The fair-trade charity, Traidcraft Exchange is launching an advent calendar with a difference this year.

It’s teaming up with anti-slavery organisations and charities and each day will suggest 24 simple ways of making the world a better place.

Anyone who signs up will receive a daily email suggesting a way to stand up for social justice.  

Traidcraft Exchange says thousands of people have already signed up and it hopes the daily alerts will inspire action against injustice. 

The Injustice Advent Calendar https://traidcraftexchange.org/injustice-advent-calendar is free and the charity says the daily alerts may involve sending emails, signing petitions or texting a friend, but that the tasks will take less than five minutes to complete.

Organisations involved include Anti-Slavery International, Bees for Development, Fashion Revolution, Macmillan Cancer Support, National Deaf Children's Society and the RSPCA.

Traidcraft Exchange is the partner charity of Traidcraft, the fair-trade company. It says its mission is to use the power of trade to create lasting solutions to poverty.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
