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."

  • Sign up to our Confidentiality Pledge




    Here at The Mix we take your confidentiality really seriously. We want to make sure that The Mix is a safe place for everyone so we're asking everyone to sign up to our confidentiality pledge.


    By signing the confidentiality pledge you're agreeing to help keep The Mix a safe and anonymous space for everyone, including you!

    The pledge


    What is said on The Mix is not repeated/posted elsewhere

    We want you to feel confident that anything you share won't appear anywhere else.

    By signing the pledge you agree not to talk to others about what someone has said on The Mix anywhere else. (E.g Social Media)

    Don't bring something that someone shares elsewhere into a discussion on The Mix without their permission.



    Your privacy is your responsibility

    Think carefully about when you decide to give out your personal information and who you give it to.

    If you keep your communication within the boards, chat and PMs then we can keep you safe.

    If you connect outside of The Mix then your privacy is your responsibility.


    Chat pledge: Keep private conversations out of chat
    Mentioning in chat that you're also talking to someone outside of chat (E.g Facebook) can make others feel unsafe.

    It can cause them to worry that something they share might go outside of the room.

    If you want to talk to someone away from chat then do so but please keep private conversations separate and don't mention them in chat.



    By replying to this thread you are agreeing to use The Mix in the spirit of this pledge


    If you'd like to send us any thoughts/feedback on the pledge then you can PM The Mix Staff Account.

                          Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow

                              Thought I'd throw in a pancake flip for good measures
                              People not believing in you doesn't mean you can't achieve it. Where the most inspirational spirit lies is within you; believe in yourself even when everybody else doesn't!
