12 Days of Christmas Campaign

Beirut, Lebanon, 27 December, 2013 - Christmas is the season of joy and giving, and we at Gosawa decided to give our fans another reason to be happy. Our 12-day Christmas campaign themed the “12 Days of Christmas” ran in the lead up to Christmas day with new prizes given away each day and a grand prize of a brand new PlayStation 4 on Christmas Eve.

Fans were asked to engage in a daily quest that was posted on our Facebook page to win the prize of the day between December 9 and December 23, 2013. As for those who were after the PS 4, they were asked to comment on our Facebook profile picture giving us the reason why they should win.

The campaign was a huge success and the daily quests recorded hundreds of interactions each day. 11 lucky fans won amazing prizes of values ranging between $70 and $150 each.

There were more than 400 entries to win the grand prize but the luckiest of all was Elie Abouchaaya who wrote the best comment under our profile picture and won himself the latest version of Sony’s PlayStation, the PS4. Elie was extremely excited to receive his prize on Christmas Eve, and we were just as excited to gift it to the lucky winner!

The team at Gosawa thoroughly enjoyed all the action and the spirit of Christmas giving which resulted in this successful end of year campaign.
