Real Advent Calendar
Full Product Description
Inside each Advent door, in this run-up-to Christmas calendar, is a Belgian chocolate shape and a snippet of the Christmas story - a refreshing change from the elves, reindeer and snowmen. Behind its first giant window is a 32-page Christmas story-activity booklet, designed to be used every day in Advent. The booklet gives more detail about the Christmas story and has seven Advent challenges. The booklet is illustrated by Sophie Allsopp.
The chocolate is Fairtrade ensuring that farmers in the developing world receive a good price for their produce. The Meaningful Chocolate Company supports Traidcraft Exchange and The Funzi & Bodo Trust with 10p from every sale being donated.
TV presenter, Diane Louise Jordan, said: 'Not only is the calendar educational and made from Fairtrade chocolate but it's a great opportunity to raise funds to help equip and support The Funzi and Bodo Trust baby clinic in Kenya. The clinic is doing an amazing job by making sure people who are sick receive treatment and also offering new educational opportunities - which I hope will give children the chance of a better future.'
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu said: "The Real Advent Calendar is a chance to educate, stimulate our thinking and do good."
Allergy Advice: ingredients include milk powder, milk solids and soya. May contain traces of nuts, egg and gluten. Suitable for vegetarians.

The Meaningful Chocolate Company
Certified as a truly Fairtrade company, The Meaningful Chocolate Company is a totally ethical enterprise. Managed and operated by people who are passionate about ethical faith-driven trading, every aspect of the company's buying, manufacturing and marketing practice is perfectly aligned to its highly prized voluntary, charity and ethical trader status.
Registered with the Fair Trade Labeling Organization (FLO) and The Fairtrade Foundation, every piece of The Meaningful Chocolate Company's chocolate is sourced and sold under responsible trading conditions that create new opportunities and reward producers in developing countries.
Fairtrade farmers are assured a fair price for their raw materials and receive a further premium payment so that they can invest in improving their neighborhood. This gives the wider community vital resources for everything from buying school-books to installing solar panels and laying on healthy, reliable water supplies.
From their Real Chocolate brands, the The Meaningful Chocolate Company has raised and donated more than £140,000 for a range of charitable causes, development projects and education initiatives.
The Real Advent Calendar is just the latest, Christmas gift addition to a growing range of meaningful chocolate products from the company founded in the historic Waulk Mill, part of Manchester's Little Italy district. Sited next to another landmark of the industrial revolution, The Rochdale Canal, the company's home is part of a significant heritage complex that once formed the largest cotton-spinning firm in the world employing more than 1000 workers.
The Real Advent Calendar is created in a building originally used for the process of doubling - the combining two or more yarns of cotton to form a single, almost unbreakable thread. Today The Real Chocolate Company continues to innovate and reach out to the world just as when their Manchester home became one of the first to install steam power to drive the global outreach of its world famous cotton cloth.
