This December we want to celebrate all those generous and kind-hearted people out there who contribute to the greater good, give their time and help others. Here at MAS, each staff member is given one day per year to give back to community. They pitch in for a wide variety of organisations and causes. Over the next 24 days, we'll share their stories as our #masforgood advent calendar.

We'd also love to hear your stories about wonderful organisations, amazing people, and initiatives in your community. Pop over to our Facebook page, tag them in the comments of our #masforgood post (or any of the other advent calendar posts) and tell us what makes them special. Everybody who comments on and likes our Facebook page before 24 December, is in to win a $500 prezzie card or one of five $100 prezzie cards or one of five Bum Bag Survival Kits!

T&Cs apply.
