THE REVERSE ADVENT CALENDAR IS BACK IN BERLIN!
The reverse Christmas Calendar is a French initiative brought in Berlin by Anne-Cécile & Audrey from La Case Paulette. They followed the path of Fanny Vargas & Mangaïa Bar instigators (taken over this year by the collective Will for Change) of the project in France, and decided to collect Advent Calendars made by their community for the underprivileged in Berlin.
WHAT IS A REVERSE ADVENT CALENDAR?
It is an Advent Calendar, that would be distributed on Christmas Eve to the ones that are needing it the most. Of course, essential products are more than welcome, but little gifts such as chocolate, card games, drawing notebooks or just a few words written for the recipient of the box will be received gladly. When preparing those boxes, one must keep in mind that the population in the streets is mostly masculine, but package directed to woman or children are also appreciated.
This year, la Case Paulette is the only point of collection. But the Paulette Sisters are looking for one collections in each borough of Berlin. Becoming a point of collection is really easy: one needs a space with a public access and a bit of storage. As a collection point, you must agree to return the packages to La Case Paulette at the end of the operation (November 13th) so that Moabit Hilft can collect them from a single collection point, our boutique.
If you are interested join this facebook group or drop us a line at boutique[a]lacasepaulette.com
All packages are redistributed to Moabit Hilft e.V.
The Reverse Advent Calendar is able to start from now at la Case Paulette, and the last day to drop your package will be on December 13th.
The other points of collection will be announce as we go along in the Reverse Advent Calendar Facebook and La Case Paulette social media.
