Unique advent calendar to be auctioned on eBay for Oxfam

Oxfam and Parcel Hero are joining forces for an eBay auction selling a set of 25 unique boxes, each filled with a handcrafted gift, that form a one-of-a-kind advent calendar.

Created by 25 well-known craftsmen and women, famous for their arts and crafts blogs across the globe, the advent calendar is expected to attract some high bids.

The designers include Matt Jones of Lunartik, Jenny Barnett Rohrs of Craft Test Dummies, Hilary Pullen of UK Craft Blog and Pablo Lentile.

Oxfam’s partnerships manager Peter Hall commented: “Oxfam gives a massive thankyou to every artist who has taken part. These advent boxes will help change lives.

“We are so impressed with the amount of effort and creativity that has gone into these creations. Let’s hope they raise loads of funds to help Oxfam end poverty sooner! Happy bidding!”

Parcel Hero’s head of PR David Jinks, added: “This is probably the most unique and inspired advent calendar ever created; but sadly only one person can own it.

“ParcelHero is auctioning the calendar on its official eBay site now and the auction will close on November 26th. Of course, all the money raised will go directly to Oxfam in time for Christmas.”
