VeVeFestivus is an nonprofit event which first took place in early December of 2021. The event started small, with only a handful of the VeVe community holding giveaways with the hashtag #VeVeFestivus. The event was meant to highlight the giving spirit during the holidays, and simultaneously bring attention to VeVe. With over 250 people taking part, with a value of over $20,000 in prizes (at the time), it's safe to say that the event was a huge success.
Within the month of December, VeVe onboarded many new users on the app, and saw explosive growth on their social media accounts. VeVeFestivus contributed to the increased exposure which VeVe enjoyed, however this event was only one of many which took place within the community in December.
The VeVeFam stepped up at a time when giving is especially emphasized, and brought joy and happiness to many people across Twitter and the official VeVe discord. During a part of history where pandemic fatigue was at its peak, the VeVe community also helped to create a type of distraction where people weren't constantly thinking about being stuck in their homes. I personally remember being approached by quite a few people who held this sentiment, and I was able to fully empathize with them.
With summer on the way, VeVeFestivus is back once again! This is VeVeFestivus' version of "Christmas in July," however it'll be held in June from the 3rd to the 26th. Why are we starting so early? Well, it's going to take a bit of time to plan and properly schedule all of the events we have in mind. The VeVeFestivus events' main goals have not changed; the spirit of giving exists all year round, and at this crucial point in time, there's no better moment to bring more attention to VeVe. I'm happy to announce that we will be holding giveaways and contests leading up to the official event in June.
VeVeFestivus and all of it's contributors are excited to provide a bigger, and more immersive experience for you this year! We hope that you enjoy yourselves and the festivities!
