Tis the season for kindness. The season for spreading joy and doing good deeds. Throughout the month of December, Grandpa Shorter’s Gifts, invites you to spot the #PetoskeyElf throughout downtown Petoskey. He’s not a naughty elf. The #PetoskeyElf has a big heart and wants to help others. He can be found opening doors for others, shoveling sidewalks, giving out free parking tokens to customers, buying hot cocoa for others, and so much more.
Can You Catch the #PetoskeyElf in the Act of Being Kind?
We bet you can. And when you do, take a selfie, tag/follow @grandpa_shorters on Instagram, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #PetoskeyElf. This kind elf will be busy giving away special prizes to those who take a selfie with him. After all, his goal is to spread joy!
If you’re not on Instagram, no worries. Follow us on Facebook and tag us in your photo.
Randomly, the #PetoskeyElf will choose friends who have spotted him in the act of doing a good deed. Together we can all spread joy and happiness. Keep reading because even if you’re not local, we have other ways to win goodies this holiday season.
