Gift #3 - Where My Goats Go
Our beloved Goat has gained great courage after meeting with Profound Possum and is continuing its ascension, this time above the towering skyscrapers of New York City. To the moon? Maybe…but the greatest journeys are never completed in a straight line
In their first NFT partnership AND their first collaboration with NFT photographer Isaac “Drift” Wright, the artist behind the iconic NFT collection Where My VANS Go, apparel company VANS has created a template commemorating the artwork Gary & Drift drew on their shoes prior to their photoshoot flight above New York City. These sneakers, aptly named When Goats Fly, are exclusive only to current Gift Goat owners and will have customization options ensuring each Goat gets a pair that represents their unique style.
Where My Goats Go is a collection of 555 tokens comprising 37 editions. Each edition is a unique photograph taken by Drift during his helicopter flight with GaryVee. Prior to the flight, the duo, inspired by their respective creative backgrounds, drew on two pairs of Old Skool VANS. The helicopter then took a flight course above iconic NYC landscapes while they reimagined Drift’s signature style from his collection Where My Vans Go and photographed their feet hanging over the greatest city in the world.
The Gift Goats received 1 of 37 limited edition tokens (15 in each edition) that make up a total of 555 tokens

Gift #6 -The Goat That Keeps On Chillin'
*Inhale* *Exhale* - Gift Goat takes a breath. As we prepare to head to VeeCon and take a look back on Series 1, it is time to slow down and take a moment to take in everything we experienced and synthesize all we are grateful for. Breathing deeply, Gift Goat relaxes and emulates the slow, deliberate quintessence of the SLOTH.
Gift - In this unique original artwork by SLOTH, Gift Goat’s will be holding a physical moment from Web3 history. Each Gift Goat will receive a signed individual piece out of the 555 canvases that created the Gift Goat Mural presented at VeeCon. SLOTH utilizes his signature style using spray paint and acrylic paint to create a giant 50’ x 10’ explosive mural for all attendees to enjoy. After the mural is displayed at VeeCon, it will be disassembled on the spot and each individual canvas will be shipped directly from Minneapolis off to the Gift Goats as a relic from the inaugural VeeCon Event.
This physical artwork not only symbolizes the Gift Goat presence at VeeCon, but will also embody the collective that is the Gift Goat holders, as each piece represents the Gift Goat community as a whole.
NFT - In this Gift Goat collaboration, we are pleased to present The Goat That Keeps On Chillin’ - a collection of 555 unique 1/1 NFTs. The NFT features Gift Goat chillin’ with “Rare” Robot in signature color combinations throughout the piece, such as the borders, the Goats, and the ETH diamonds. Additionally, the number on each spaceship also corresponds to each Gift Goat number.
Artist Timmy Ham, known as SLOTH, is a designer and illustrator from Phoenix, AZ. He began his art career as a street artist, with SLOTH as his tag. He took his inspiration for SLOTH from the idea that everyone could benefit from slowing down, and taking time to appreciate the things that are meaningful to them. Over the next ten years he developed his aesthetic into a lifestyle brand, creating apparel, murals, footwear, vinyl figures, and everything in between. He has been awarded a Shorty Award, honoring the best of social media and digital for ‘Best in Art’ while also creating art for companies like Lexus, Toyota, Pepsi, and Adobe.

How the Gift Goat Gift Claiming Experience Works
In order to receive your Gift Goat Gifts, you first need to “claim” your Gift Goat by entering the claim information on VeeFriends website. The claim information you confirm on site will be used for shipping information and physical gift details. Please watch THIS video to confirm you have claimed your Gift Goat.
Once you claim the Gift Goat token on VeeFriends website, the information will roll over for future gifts as long as the token remains in the same wallet. If you transfer your token to a different wallet (including hardware wallets) you will need to reclaim your token for the next gift. You may also update the claim information at any time during a claim period window.
Claim periods will be notified to all Gift Goat holders via email when available alongside a Discord announcement in the Gift Goat exclusive channel. An additional email will also be sent out 24 hrs before the claim period ends as a reminder.
Gift Goats FAQ
To provide more clarity on the Gift Goat token, below is a “Gift Goat FAQs”:
1) I moved my Gift Goat to my hardware wallet. Do I need to re-Claim my gift?
Yes, by transferring your Gift Goat to another wallet, your Claim information has now been erased because the wallet address owner has changed. You will now need to connect your hardware wallet to https://series1.veefriends.com/, go to “My Profile”, and click on the Gift Goat token within the “Available to Claim” window.
2) I missed the deadline for my gift, am I still able to claim it?
Unfortunately, once the deadline has passed and all Gift Goat holders’ information has been snapshotted and sent over to production for the Gift. You are still able to claim your next Gift when the claiming period opens.
3) I still can't claim on the website, it is greyed out for me still?
Please clear your cache on the webpage by pressing CTRL+Shift+R for PC and Command+Shift+R for Mac.
4) I have multiple Gift Goats, do I have to claim each?
Yes, for each Gift Goat token you must individually claim, we do this because some owners may want to send their gifts to different locations.
5) What if I sell my Gift Goat, does my information still remain saved in the system?
No, once your Gift Goat is transferred to another wallet, your claim information associated with that token is deleted.
6) I already put my address in the VeeFriends.com “My Profile” section. Why can’t you use that information as my claim information?
My Profile section is the information we use to contact you directly regarding any VeeFriends, Access Token, and/or Gift Goat updates. The claim information is used to determine who and where you would like that specific gift sent.
7) If I have already “claimed my gift” on VeeFriends.com, will my information be saved for future gifts?
Yes, if you have claimed the token on-site, the information will roll over for future gifts. However, you can update your information at any time before the claim period ends.
8) If I sell my Gift Goat after the claim period deadline, will I still receive the associated gift?
Yes, as long as you “claim your token” on https://series1.veefriends.com/ a snapshot will be taken as soon as the claim period ends to confirm those who will be receiving the gift. (Eg. If you sell your Gift Goat 1 minute after the claim period ends, you still receive your first gift.)
