Birthday GOO Giveaway: Very Rare YOLO YAK

This past Sunday was Gary’s birthday, and in true GaryVee fashion he decided to do a GOO Giveaway in our discord making someone else feel like it was their birthday. GOO (Gary’s Originally Owned) giveaways are rare occasions because out of the 10,255 VeeFriends tokens, there are only 1,242 GOOs in existence, and will always carry significance since Gary is their original owner. The winner of the GOO shared a heart-felt call with Gary and the rest of our community, leaving all agreeing vulnerability is a strength not a weakness.
