Zippo Interactive Media Experience & Limited Edition #SharethePain Lighter Giveaway

How would love like to win a Limited Edition lighter from Zippo, the makers of the incredible, iconic symbol, which has been around for nearly eight decades? We had the great pleasure of attending a Zippo interactive media experience, which featured first-hand connection stories shared by Zippo owners and their families with some amazing lost/found stories received over the past 80+ years. To celebrate these heartfelt and sometimes hilarious stories, we are giving away five of the below #SharethePain Zippo Windproof Lighters to some lucky readers….just in time for Father’s Day (more details at the end of this post).

During the “Share the Pain” Interactive Media Experience, we got the opportunity to take a mobile walking tour through time and listen to first person accounts (via provided headphones) of lost Zippo stories while walking through the displays. The experience featured examples of past customized pieces, and other Zippo lifestyle products, including lighters, wallets, cologne and watches.

From lighters eaten by bears, swallowed by fish, and even one lighter that was found after four decades, there were tons of extraordinary tales of lost Zippos shared. The event also gave us the chance to check out the Zippo car. Fun fact: the original Zippo car, a 1947 Chrysler New Yorker Saratoga, was actually lost in 1950’s after being taken to a Pittsburgh Ford dealer for renovation and to this day has still never been found. What you’re seeing below is the second Zippo car purchased and customized in 1996.

Although the handwritten letters have changed to tweets, Zippo continues to receive stories of lost lighters (and some found lighters) with the #sharethepain hashtag.

As stated at the beginning of this post, we are giving away five limited Edition Zippo Windproof Lighters, which make excellent gifts for Father’s Day. If you or someone you know has lost their Zippo lighter, this is a great time to surprise them with a new….and special lighter. To enter, check out the rafflecopter entry form below:

    I lost a pearl necklace. Problem is – I lost it in the house. Our house has been broken into a couple of times so I hid the pearls from robbers in case they came again and now I can't find them. Yep – pretty stupid

    I lost an emerald pendant that my mother gave me for Christmas one year. She had had the pendant made from an earring that she had lost the mate to. I guess losing favorite things runs in the family.

    I did lose a diamond pendant once. Made me very sad! I hope someone found it and is cherishing it the way I would have!

    I lost a ring my mother gave me. I think I lost it on a vacation by the pool. I went back, but could never find it.

    Yes. A few. One is this bracelet that a nice lady I tutored, who was dying of cancer made especially for me. She got the beads at a special shop over an hour's drive from our town after asking me all my children's birthdays. I had no clue it was for a bracelet. I loved it so much. I was afraid to wear it, well I decided to and lost it! I am certain it was lost at a Toys R US, but nobody turned it in. She gave it to me as a thank you gift. That is the biggest "thing I've lost" regret. It was, it is irreplaceable.
