About the Calendar
When can I purchase a key to the calendar?
Right now! Right here!
What am I getting, exactly?
Your donation will get you a key to 24 days of brand-new multimedia art, which you will access through this site. Starting December 1st, a new piece of art will unlock every day. Purchase a key at any point to get access to that day and all the previous days’ work.
Can I enjoy this with my kids?
The majority of the artwork in the calendar is appropriate for all ages. Exceptions will be marked by content warnings. (But as we have no federal regulators on our team, we ultimately leave this in the capable hands of your designated household adults.)
Will the calendar work on my phone/tablet/weird old browser?
The Advent Project works for sure on the most recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge, as well as current Safari on iPhone and Chrome on Android. It probably works other places too! But we can’t guarantee that—we’re not in charge of the internet.
Is the calendar centered around Christian themes?
We borrowed the Advent in our name from the religious tradition, as it marks the time of year (and format!) that shaped the project. The Advent Project isn’t associated with any one religion or holiday practice, though. Our artists come from a variety of backgrounds, and create art that reflects that.
What if I want to help in some other way?
You can help by promoting The Advent Project to your friends and acquaintances! But we’d also be delighted to hear from you if you have other ideas or support you want to offer, or if you are a fancy journalist who also is nice. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or find us on Instagram or Twitter.
Purchasing a Key
How much does it cost?
We require just a $5 donation for 24 days of content—but if you are moved by the spirit of whatever holiday you may or may not be celebrating, we’d encourage you to donate more.
How does payment work?
All payments are processed through Stripe. You can pay using a credit card, or Apple Pay if you have an iPhone or Mac. After choosing how many keys you’d like and any additional donation you’re willing to give, you’ll be redirected to Stripe to securely complete your purchase.
What if I can’t pay?
If the $5 is cost-prohibitive for you—or you’re unable to pay with a credit card—please email us at email@example.com. No one will be excluded from the calendar by their circumstances.
Where does my money go?
100% of the proceeds from the calendar go to The Community Justice Exchange, split evenly between their long-term work to build a community-centered vision of justice and the National Bail Fund Network that they host. All artists and organizers are donating their time to this cause. Read more about the CJE.
Is this tax-deductible?
Yes! Because The Community Justice Exchange is a non-profit organization, your purchase and any additional donation are both tax-deductible.
Can I purchase this as a gift for someone else?
Sure! We may be biased, but we think this makes a great gift. You can purchase additional calendar keys here. Each gift recipient will receive their key automatically via email.
