The most wonderful time of the year is back – and we’re making it even better with our 12 Days of Giveaways, presented by New Balance Vancouver.
Most people are celebrating something festive over the next month, so whether you’re wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, or even bah humbug, you’ll have something to cheer about.
Our inaugural 12 Days of Giveaways campaign was launched in 2010 as a way to give back to our readers, and since then we’ve continued to give more and more.
The first 12 Days gave readers $3,000 in prizes, and in 2015 we had increased that number to more than $20,000. This year, we’re giving away more than $32,000 in prizes – and we’ve expanded our contest to share the love in other Daily Hive cities as well.
How it works
Starting on December 1, we’ll be launching a number of different contests each day. Every giveaway will run until 11:59 pm PST on December 15. On the following day we’ll randomly draw names from all the entrants to announce the winners in one major post.
There will be something to be won for everyone: snazzy shoes, a $1,000 tattoo, a year’s worth of fitness, a helicopter ride, and much more are all up for grabs during this year’s giveaway season.
Some giveaways will be available to everyone reading Daily Hive, while others are for specific cities only, so make sure you know which city the contest is for.
