Offline Cyber Weekend – a counter movement

We’ve got a challenge for you (and a chance to win a Rockbook)! Scroll to the bottom of this post for all info, or read the story behind this initiative first…

This Friday it’s Black Friday, on Monday it’s Cyber Monday. Including all days in between, these days are often referred to as Cyber Weekend. The time to score all sorts of deals and stuff online. Surf the web for hours upon hours for the best deals.

We’ll create a counter-movement

Instead of being online this weekend wouldn’t it be great to go offline for a change? Visit friends and family, spend some quality time together. Visit local shops and stores and buy Christmas presents from artisans and small businesses that worked hard to deliver you the best quality product with a lot of love.

We can highly recommend going offline for a change. Only then you notice how dependent of your electronica you are. A digital detox can also help you to focus on other activities and loved ones, for whom you normally have less time!

So we are going to challenge you!

We challenge you to stay offline for 18 hours straight this Cyber weekend (23, 24, 25, 26 November). If you manage to do this (and give us some proof, details will follow later) we will give you one Rockbook for free! Yes you read that correctly, totally free and the only thing you have to do is to just not touch your mobile phone for 18 hours. Easy right?

To track this you will need to download an app from either the App store or Google Play, for example the app Forest and turn the app on. This app will track your phone usage(including a timer) plus, you’ll plant real-life trees in the mean time. AWESOME!

When you pass the 18 hour mark, take a screenshot and send it to us in a personal message (either via Facebook, e-mail hello@paperontherocks or Instagram) including your address and Rockbook preference, and we will ship the Rockbook to you as soon as possible.

Are you in? We promise you, this will pay off immediately!

Recap of the challenge:

  1. Be offline from your phone for at least 18 hours on 23, 24, 25 or 26th of November
  2. Use a tracking app like Forest to time this
  3. Relax
  4. Send us a screenshot where you passed the 18hr mark, together with your name, address and Rockbook preference*
  5. We ship Rockbooks in Europe only, and only 1 per person*

*There are only a limited amount of Classic Collection Rockbooks available for this action. We can provide free Rockbooks for the first 200 participants responding. The next 200 participants will pay the shipping fee. Of course we will inform you about this!
