Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the many important people and relationships in our lives
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 24, 2010
DailyFeats, the new online social platform that encourages users to log their positive actions to better their lives and earn rewards, today announced the launch of a customized Thanksgiving channel created in collaboration with 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (FLWS), the world’s leading florist and gift shop. This special holiday promotion can be found at http://1800flowers.dailyfeats.com.
Via DailyFeats, currently operating in beta, registered users can check in their positive actions, or their feats, to accrue points, which can then be redeemed for monetary and social rewards. DailyFeats rewards are supplied by the site’s partners, a diverse collection of celebrated brands including 1-800-FLOWERS.COM®. Feats sponsored by 1-800-FLOWERS.COM encourage users to share smiles, sympathy, and gratitude; additional feats include a wide variety of actions beneficial to the body, mind, home and community.
DailyFeats’ seasonal Thanksgiving channel, sponsored by 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, awards points for such feats as !givingthanks, expressing heartfelt gratitude; !healthymeal, planning a nutritious Thanksgiving feast; !donatefood, giving food and other goods to those less fortunate; and !everyoneoutside, getting the entire family outside for the holiday.
“Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the many important people and relationships in our lives,” said Jim McCann, CEO and Founder, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. “With DailyFeats, visitors are reminded of the heartfelt emotions and feelings of goodwill which are so prevalent during this holiday time, while encouraging them to have a positive effect on family and friends, as well as the community around them.”
“There’s no better day than Thanksgiving for people to celebrate their positive actions and set meaningful goals for the future,” said Morley Ivers, COO of DailyFeats. “DailyFeats allows users to do just that, and we’re thrilled to team up with such an outstanding and respected brand as 1-800-FLOWERS.COM to offer these special holiday features. We hope users will enjoy the benefits of completing the unique Thanksgiving feats, as well as the rewards provided by 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.”
