Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

    Hello my lovely lovely boardies!
    i'm making some leaflets and posters about the mix and the support this inspiring community offers, to put around my college. i'm getting started but would love a hand on positive stories.

    how has the mix helped you? where would you be without it? How do you think it will help others in times of need?
    overall I would love to hear some stories I can include, now
    I understand some of you might not want it to be personal and out there so you can happily send me a private message about your views or story and when I include it I can easily make it anonymous (or post just your first name or even choose an alias!) its entirely up to you. it will just really help me inform those around our huge campus that there are places to go and get support ect.
    any other opinions on what I should write, focus on, or what you think the mix is good for or even who you think its best for. is also welcome!

    Happy Friday!!
