12 Days of Christmas Ukulele GIVEAWAY
Mele Kalikimaka! Well, at least that’s what Bing is singing over on my Amazon Echo. Thanksgiving is just a day old and my stomach is already longing for my mom’s homemade cranberry sauce! Secret tip guys... she uses apple and pear in her recipe so it’s basically a Ramsey-fied cranberry sauce. So now with Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror, we are heading right into CHRISTMAS, the most wonderful time of year! And with that said, it gives me great pleasure to announce to you Leolani’s 12 Days of Christmas ukulele giveaway! Now say that 10 times fast. Thankfully that isn’t one of the daily challenges. “Wait what? What are these challenges you are speaking of?” Yes, you heard me right... challenges! Just like the ole’ Christmas carol goes we will be giving away ukulele on each of the twelve days! I really love that song BTW (especially the Hawaiian style version)! So in this post I’m gonna break down what this contest/giveaway is all about. And, yes, the challenges too! So lets just start with the best part. We here at Leolani are gonna giveaway twelve ukulele! Yes, you heard me right through those ear muffs! TWELVE ukulele! Your right Dwight! One for each of the twelve days with a few surprises sprinkled in a day or two. And as the big guy in the red suit delivers gifts to children all over the world, we decided to follow his lead and open this contest to everyone. US and International! If you win, we will find a way to get it to you. Even if we have to ship ELF-EXPRESS, USS (United Sleigh Service) or NPPS (North Poll Post). All are welcome to enter! So the next logical question is how does one win one of these awesome ukuleles. We have teamed up with a special team of elves, twelve amazing musical influencers and artists/groups to help spread the holiday cheer! Each of these artist is comman(deer)ing one of the twelve days, and they have personally picked the specific holiday challenges. They are really festive and fun! We hope you get excited looking over. We know that not everyone entering owns a ukulele, so we have both ukulele friendly and non ukulele friendly challenges to choose from. Hopefully a Leolani/KUMU will be your first ukulele, that would be jolly! So without further ado, here are the challenges! HO, HO, HO... those elves are so cheerful! The challenges start next week, in 72 hours, on Monday, November 30th so mark your calendars! Here’s how to enter my fellow sugar plums: 1. Use the hashtag for the specific day you are entering. For day one it will be #MerryUkeMasDay1. For day two... #MerryUkeMasDay2. And each consecutive day will follow the same pattern. So for day twelve its #MerryUkeMasDay12. You got it! 2. Follow @leolani_kumu_ukulele on Instagram or Facebook @Leolani Ukulele. 3. Post your entry to Instagram or Facebook by 11:59pm HST (Hawaii Standard Time) on the day you are entering. Day one is Monday November 30th, just a few days away. 4. Turn you account setting to public (at least on the day you are entering) so our judges will be able to see your wonderful creations. So be as creative and festive as possible. Let’s make this giveaway super fun! You can enter all twelve, or just one. You have a chance to win all twelve ukulele or one. It’s totally up to you. The more days you enter... the more chances to win! This contest will have up to twelve winners. So go tell it on the mountain! HARK! You can submit your entries whenever!
