Hello @moex-photografy Yes, the hours are counting down, and the entries are still coming in.
Thank you for taking part in this initiative:)
Happy 2022!

Even though I reblog the contest post a few days ago, I almost forgot about it. I am very busy, Aceh is grieving. We are being hit by a flood disaster, tens of thousands of people are victims. In my area two people have died from being swept away. today conditions are just starting to get better, if there is no more rain. We wish you all the best!

Hi. Is it required to have two other hivers join? If so, how do we show proof?

Hey @eudadol, You can just state the names of the ones you've invited at the bottom of your post. It's basically to get more awareness, and sometimes people miss out on opportunities to enter just because they did not see the contest. If they take part or subscribe it's not your responsibility.
Thank you for asking. I hope you are doing ok despite everything.
It's great to see you back online.
All good wishes🙏

This is great. I'll be joining.

We are thriving. Thanks for the concern. :)
