Beating the Lockdown Blues with Woohoo

Meanwhile, we’ve been having some fun on the WoohooGifting Facebook page. In an attempt to inspire everyone and spread awareness about the importance of wearing a mask, we created a fun contest #WearMaskChallenge and also encouraged our audience to share the post and spread the message by challenging their friends. The winner received a Woohoo Gift card. We are all waiting for the day when the lockdown will be over and life will go back to normal, which will bring the freedom to binge on our favorite street food. In our #FirstThingToEat contest, we asked our audience to share with us what is the first thing they would eat outside when the lockdown is over and the last one to comment won a Woohoo Gift card. Running these simple contests was our endeavor to engage with our customers during this difficult time and brighten up someone’s day with a chance to win a Woohoo Gift card.
