Richard Branson has launched a new ‘don't forget...’ competition to offer one of his Twitter followers a last-minute holiday.
This time round, in celebration of Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, the Virgin founder is asking everyone to tweet a photo of themselves along with who or whatever they’re most thankful for.
It might be a treasured possession or a loved one, maybe it’s something that symbolizes the thing you’re most thankful for, just take a photo and tweet an explanation to @richardbranson with the hashtag #DontForgetToGiveThanks.
Richard has said on his blog that he's most thankful for his family, therefore he has chosen a photo from 1986 when he was welcomed safely back on dry land by his wife Jean and children Holly and Sam after he had just broken the record for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic in Virgin Atlantic Challenger II.
The prize for #DontForgetToGiveThanks will be a pair of free return flights to a mystery destination and hotel accommodation over next weekend. The winner and travelling companion must both have a valid passport and be able fly out on Thursday November 29th - do make sure you’re free from then until Sunday December 2nd if you enter!
The competition is live from 2pm GMT on Tuesday November 20th and will run until 2pm GMT on Monday November 26th when a winner will be chosen. The winner will fly out to the mystery destination on Thursday November 29th and return on Sunday 2nd December.
