🎄 Twelve Days of Christmas Community Giveaway (2018)


At my age, the cup would be more important than the eight dancing ladies. Thanks for a great 5+ years with Republic. My wife and I never had a problem that was wasn’t resolved quickly by the community forum responses.


I replied to the Micro-USB Turbo Car Charger, not sure why it stuck me in the other post, as I have tons of kitchen items to give away myself… maybe here??

I think a car charger would be more practical as the eight maids a milking while being lactose intolerant seems to be an issue. Though if I could sell the milk and that would be the next career, and/or are they A2 cows, then that might be acceptable, though goat milk is much more digestible. … ah I digress…

The next problem is that I don’t know if there are any cool gifts left on the 4 days…


Both of my daughters would assure you that if I am in any way involved, “cool” is not likely.

You’ve done such a great job of explaining why a car charger is better than a maid-a-milking, so I’ll be in touch with you by personal message to arrange for you to have the car charger.


You’re right @amyb9, it does show that you replied to the car charger post. I’m not sure what I was looking at previously, and I apologize for my confusion.


Yeah, it did look like it went under the wrong post. I don’t know how those things happen.


Cue @louisdi with today’s interesting photograph…

Day ten…

:notes: Ten Moto Keylinks :musical_note:

Ok, you know the drill by now - tell us why a Moto Keylink is a better gift than ten lords a-leaping. Or, tell us the craziest place you’ve found your phone or keys. The first ten people to do so will receive a Moto Keylink, which is a nifty little device that helps you find your lost keys or lost phone. Some of our members tried them out and wrote about them, here:

As requested


Moto keylink would definitely fit on my keyring better than ten lords-a-leaping. And with three Moto Z Plays in the family, one of us is always misplacing keys or the phone. Ten lords-a-leaping couldn’t keep up with our keys! My son dropped my keys into a roll of wallpaper in the hardware store one day, I sure wish I had the keylink on that day!


A Moto Keylink is a better gift than ten lords a-leaping. Could have used one when returning from Paris, my keys were still packed when we arrived at our car parked in long term parking. It took awhile to search through all four bags.


I once found my keys in the refrigerator. After looking for two days.


The Moto Keylink is better than ten lords a-leaping because you can use it to find your keys or phone. I always misplace my keys or phone especially when I’m in a hurry to go somewhere. Sometimes, I wish I have something to find my keys or phone.


We have a good number of day nine and ten gifts still available, and to them we’ll add…

Day eleven

:musical_note: On the eleventh day of Christmas, Community gave away… :notes:
:notes: Eleven Moto Power Pack Slim 5100 battery packs :musical_note:

Tell us why you’d rather have a Moto power pack than eleven pipers piping. The first eleven people to do so will receive one as our gift. (No double-dipping, if you’ve already claimed a gift, you cannot have another.)

(Keep in mind, the Moto power pack comes outfitted to be used with a phone with a micro-usb port, but you can use this power pack with your own charging cable if your phone has a different connection.)

Power packs have been claimed by:

For newer phones using USB-C connectors something like this would allow for use of the Moto Power Pack Slim 5100’s built-in cable: Anker USB-C (Male) to Micro USB (Female). I use a similar adapter with a Pixel 2 XL.


That’s a good option, too, but I don’t want anyone to think they must buy an adapter. The power pack has a standard USB port, so any USB-C charging cable that you’d use with a charger or computer can be used.



I’m a band director and have plenty of pipers who pipe. Eleven more wouldn’t be helpful. A battery pack however would be very helpful! :slight_smile:


A ceramic mug is much better than nine ladies dancing because HOT TEA! Nothing refreshes and soothes like a warm cup of tea morning, noon, and night - 365 days a year - every year. Nine dancing ladies would get pretty boring after a while, no matter how good they were.

12 Days of Christmas

A battery pack charging silently is much better than pipers piping loudly.


A Moto keylink would be invaluable to my aging, forgetful ways, especially against the nightmare of lords leaping everywhere! The worst place I lost my keys was in the alley dumpster…throwing out the trash!


Bumping this thread!
Thanks R.W. (and especially Southpaw) for the 12 days of Christmas!
