December is the month of giving. And giving makes people happy, even happier than receiving. For this reason, we will open three gifts of our Advent calendar for good deeds with you on each of the next four Sundays. With each of the gifts we want to give you a little surprise and at the same time inspire you to give something to other people during the Advent time.
