This year I am going to participate in a very cool holiday gift exchange program. I am going to be part of the Crown Royal “Pass The Crown” promotion. This is the second year Crown Royal has run this gift exchange. I am very excited not only to be a part of this event, but more importantly Crown Royal will be donating items to the military any time someone tweets using the hash tag “PassTheCrown.” When someone tweets, creates a Facebook post, or produces a YouTube video using the phrase “Pass The Crown”, they will stuff one of their signature bags and send them to the troops. This is part of their Crown Royal Heroes Project. For more information on the phenomenal program and to learn how you can support the troops click here.
Not only will you have a chance to help out our men and women in the military, but you will be having a chance to win a gift as well. I will be given a signature Crown Royal purple bag on a particular day with a clue. Once I receive the clue in the morning I have until 4 PM that day to decide if I want to open the bag or swap it with someone else. The catch is that just as I can swap my gift with someone else, they can do the exact same thing to me. So I will not know what prize I am walking away with until the promotion is completely over. For your chance to win you just have to follow my tweets and clues and help me decide what the gift could be. Plus if you are looking for some great gift ideas for whisky fans on your holiday shopping list, an embroidered Crown Royal bag is an excellent gift idea. The bags sell for $9.95 and can be purchased at the Crown Royal website. The bag in the picture is the gift I got my dad last year for Christmas.
Once the exchange is over a lucky reader and I will have a chance to win that prize. Just keep on following the clues on Twitter for your chance to win. Last year the prizes included an iPad2, a Kindle Fire, Beats by Dre Headphones, Crown Royal Happy Hours, and an all expense paid trip to a NASCAR race. Besides having the troops get a Crown Royal bag stuffed with prizes, whoever uses the “PassTheCrown” the most throughout the entire duration of the program will be allowed to have the final say on what gift he or she wants.
So as you can see this is way better than any secret Santa program or gift swap. The prizes are great and even better our military is going to be honored during the holidays when they cannot be with their friends and family. So keep checking up to see what prizes are available and who will be the next person to “Pass The Crown!”
