Vinylmation Custom Artist Keith Lapinig wants to design a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon and needs your help:


So voting ends THIS Tuesday. Around 10,000 vinyl elves were hidden around Macy’s stores all across the country last month. People were asked to decorate them and then submit their designs. We have now been narrowed down to a Top 85. I’ve been blessed and fortunate enough to be one of those 85 finalists. The winner, from this point on, is decided solely on the amount of votes they receive.. which is why I need everyone’s help!
Keith Lapinig’s Gazer
This is Gazer’s backstory:
Gazer has a very special job. Every year during the holidays, kids flock to Macy’s in NYC to tell Santa their wishes. Gazer’s job is to guide these wishing stars safely to the North Pole by pointing them in the right direction. He takes a lot of pride in his duties as he knows without him, these children’s wishes wouldn’t come true. 

Here is how to vote for Keith’s elf:

STEP 1: “Like” the Official Macy’s Facebook Page
STEP 2: Give the Elf Adventure app access. Basically, “Like” it.
STEP 3: VOTE for it on
