Shelley's advent calendar.

Photographer Shelley Richmond is asking people to undertake a good deed every day from December 1-25 - and has produced a "calendar" which she has shared through Facebook encouraging people to help others with a string of different ways of helping.

The acts include buying a dinner for a homeless dog, donating clothes to a charity shop, giving up your seat on the tram, bus or train, talking to the homeless, hugging people and picking up litter.

Other good deeds include leaving a book in a public place, cooking for a friend and taking treats into your workplace.

The Sheffielder's Random Acts of Christmas Kindness Advent Calendar will kick-off tomorrow, encouraging people to "buy a pending coffee from the Holt or Mugen tea shop."

She has spent the last few weeks drawing up suggestions for the calendar.
