2. add a caption:
describe what christmas morning will be like in your home with mistletoe. be creative! describe what each of your family member would do. is there a certain family tradition you do on christmas morning? if you don’t celebrate christmas, just describe a typical happy morning with mistletoe having joined your family. if you’re jewish, describe your hanukkah family celebrations with mistletoe.
we are not looking to see who can be most touching, dramatic, or emotional. just be sincere and authentically you!
then click on the hashtags and see how others have responded. like and comment words of love and support for one another. let’s open our eyes and use this opportunity to really embrace our community. it’s amazing how many different cultures and traditions there are surrounding one holiday season as well as so many wonderful and unique family dynamics around the nation.
3. most importantly, add all of these hashtags (below) to your post so we can find you. your account must be on public (not private) setting for the duration of this event. otherwise, we won’t be able to see nor read your entries. #sweetheartkittens#sweetheartkittensxmasgiveaway#shkxmasevent2018#shkxmasevent2018round1 you are welcome to tag us to your picture of mistletoe as well. all the better to find you. ❤️
round 2 is coming november 16. 💕
Behind the scenes of the praying cat. ❤️ we received quite a few concerned messages from you guys thinking that we had somehow tied sweetpea’s paws together and pulled on them to make her look like she was “praying”😱 rest assured, she was just trying to reach for the toy. 😆😅😍❤️🤗
Sweetheart kitten giveaway
christmas 2018 (part 2 of 2)
how it will work:
there will be three (3) required rounds altogether. you must complete all three rounds to win. each round will be a fun task and shouldn’t be difficult to complete. it will require you to really put your heart into it. we are giving you our heart, we are only asking for the same in return.
after the completion of the three rounds, 10-20 finalists will be picked. each of the finalists will go through our kitten application/adoption process. we will be very stringent. then the names of the finalists that have passed our ok-to-adopt will go into a christmas stocking and one name will be picked in random. winner will be notified and pick up arrangements will be made.
please be gracious. be gracious to us and to each other. the point of this giveaway is not to find a person that is more deserving than others to adopt mistletoe. we want this to be a joyous and meaningful event - one that we can hopefully continue yearly. we will not be able to do so if we feel that this is doing more harm than good. the last thing we want to see is a whole bunch of you upset or distraught. there can only be one winner as there is only one mistletoe. please keep this in mind as you follow along the journey - of giving, of finding, and of loving. happy holidays 2018.
Sweetheart kitten giveaway
christmas 2018 (part 1 of 2)
purpose: simply put, it is for us to practice giving in the true spirit of christmas giving. giving something we cherish wholeheartedly, without anything in return, and in the process also encourage others to do the same. it is to find mistletoe an amazing wonderful home that she deserves, and in the process help countless other animals that desperately need homes or any help that they can get. we want a beautiful adoption story for mistletoe.
what it is:
it is a giveaway/gift on our part. although it is not a competition in a traditional sense, there will be a winner, and the prize is our beloved mistletoe. there are no entry fees, you don’t have to be following us on instagram nor do you have to like anything on our page. there is a series of tasks and missions you would need to complete in order to qualify to be mistletoe’s new owner. there will also be a small monetary commitment on your part, but not to us. in the process of the giveaway, you would be donating a small amount of money to a charity or animal welfare organization of your choosing.
who it’s for:
residents of usa and/or canada with an instagram account. this is an instagram-only giveaway. must be 18 years or older or would need guardian consent. you also must be able to pick mistletoe up in person from seattle wa. you must be financially independent, or again, need to provide proof of guardian consent.
who is our judge:
obviously, we knew from the start that we couldn’t be the ones to pick. so many of our followers are our past customers and friends—it just wouldn’t be fair. we have asked a nice family to do the judging for us. they are a family of four - dad, mom and two kids. they will be reading over your entries and completed tasks as a family. we will be the ones to perform the adoption related paperwork and background checks with the finalists, but other than that, we will be staying out of the decision process, so to the folks that have been privately messaging us, we’re so sorry! we aren’t the ones deciding.
see next post for the rest of the rules. (over character limit)
