Enjoy a surprise every day leading up to Christmas—but this surprise isn’t a chocolatey treat. Instead, you get to do a new good deed every day. Behind each door, you’ll find a specific project that is made possible by a Canadian charity. Since 2020, the 24 GOOD DEEDS Charity Advent Calendar has given 75,906 medical treatments, 76,256 educational tools, 64,200 food security and meal programs, and much more.

Thrive Causemetics

Focus Eyeshadow Palette—$48

For every product purchased, Thrive Causemetics donates to help communities thrive. Through their giving partners, the beauty brand supports a wide range of causes, including fighting cancer, surviving domestic abuse, emerging from homelessness, racial and social justice, LGBTQ+ and more.

The Focus Eyeshadow Palette uses semi-permanent micropigment technology to deliver rich pigments, while providing hydrating and smoothing benefits to the eyelids. The eyeshadow quad is available in three colour palettes.

Obakki is a purpose-led lifestyle brand that works with artisan partners, who create handcrafted goods. With the Obakki scarves, 100 per cent of the proceeds go directly toward drilling clean water wells in Africa—so far, having drilled more than 4,000.

The Night Print Scarf benefits the community of Nutka in South Sudan, where a lack of clean water threatens the most vulnerable—women, children, and the elderly.

Sleeping Giant Brewing Company

Northern Logger—Starting at $3.01

Sleeping Giant Brewing Company’s beers are inspired by Lake Superior and the rich Canadian heritage of the Great White North. From January 1 to February 14, for every Sleeping Giant product sold at participating locations, 50 cents will be donated to local Thunder Bay charities, which the brewery calls their Craft Cares event.

The Northern Logger is an award-winning Golden Ale, which is light and makes for easy drinking. The brew is one of their featured products, representing a Canadiana cartoon on the bottle.
