The Charities Aid Foundation has launched an online advent calendar aimed at heightening awareness of lesser-known causes.

Each door on the calendar reveals a donor who gives to a less well known charity, with an explanation of why they give to that particular cause.

CAF hopes the calendar, which is available online will encourage people to think about the range of charities that need their support.

Head of client management for individuals, Julie Gayler, said: “So many people think about making a gift to charity at this time of year but the reality is that charities need our support all year round.”

Meanwhile, cot death charity the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths has launched a range of e-Christmas cards that can be personalised in return for a small donation.

The charity’s communications manager Nicola Peckett said: "E-cards are far kinder to the environment than traditional cards, and we hope the fact that any donations made will go directly to helping bereaved families and funding cot death research will be a good incentive for people to choose them.”
