Welcome to Year 5! Wait till you see what's in store for you this year!!! Hint- do you need a new enclosure?!?
As you know, all the gifts given out during the 12 Supreme Days of Christmas are FREE! A special thank you to all our vendors/breeders for their generosity!
Why do the vendors donate so much? Well, there is the aspect of exposure of their business/product (as this event gains in popularity each year and gets thousands of views and comments on social media pages) but I truly feel those donating are doing it, like I am, as a gift back to the community.
This year, in addition to the 12 unreal gifts (or is it more like 20!) we will pick a Grand Gift Winner! The gift will be given DEC. 27. So, what is the gift? Wait until you read this! From Repti-Ledge a Large Repti-Viv (a $65 value) and from Supreme Gecko (yes, I know you've been asking when I was going to donate), a $135 gift certificate to our store. Total value $ 200!
How do you enter? Do the things you are doing. There are two purposes to this giveaway- promote our wonderful donors, get you super nice gifts in appreciation to all you do, and have fun! Ok, 3 things. So- Share Share Share! Promote the heck out of this even so we can keep this going next year!
For the gift pull, we will have 5 entrants. Two will earn an entry (Erin MacDonald has already earned one of the spots), and 3 will be selected based on their ability to promote the event. Post on Facebook, Instagram (#12SDOC), and Twitter (#12SDOC). I know someone that has a web site and she added a link to this page. Send me a private message on FB or in the comments below to let me know what you've done.
HERE'S A CHANCE TO ENTER- Head over to Repti-Ledge or my Facebook page at Wally Kern and- Share the post from me (beginning 'Thank you Repti-Ledge for all...'), and add as many of your reptile friends as you can (please FB link them)! Winner will be selected by me 12/26 (NOW COMPLETE).
