Hello, VeeFriends, it’s Tenacious Turkey taking over this week’s VeeFriends roundup intro. As we enter the holiday season there is so much to be thankful for. Here at VeeFriends we are beyond grateful for this community and the relationships built along the way. Our community continues to aspire to live and share the characteristics and traits of  me and my 267 VeeFriends on a daily basis and for that we want to say a huge “Thank you!.” Now, let’s get you caught up on all things VeeFriends as we roundup the week.

Be Tenacious. Tenaciously thankful for the health of your friends and family. Everything else is easy!

Somebody is going to feel like a Very Very Very Very Lucky Black Cat on Friday!

Gary is giving away one of his  G.O.O VeeFriends today! Join the discord to see when Gary announces the giveaway details – hint: he has already mentioned that it would be a good idea to make your favorite VeeFriends your Twitter profile pic. Remember, 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.

5-Minute Facetimes with GaryVee

The first FaceTime session was a major success! 32 FaceTime token holders were able to pick Gary’s brain for 5 minutes on whatever topic they chose.
For our holders, this was a special moment. 1 on 1 access to Gary is not an easy thing to get, but it is made possible through our Access tokens! It was equally special for Gary, because he cherishes the opportunities to meet his community, express his sincere gratitude to them for believing in VeeFriends, and enjoys providing value to them any way he can. It was a memorable day across the board, and we’re so excited for the next session on 02/17/2022 for eligible holders!

Sales / Pick-Ups of the Week:

This week Very Rares took home the spotlight: pick-up of an Epic Joyous Jellyfish, Truculent T-Rex and Passionate Parrot round up the week nicely.
