1 Giraffe = 1 Mouse (Pad)

The Giraffe (KGIW 1450 AM ) wants to make a trade… Here’s the deal. Bring us a giraffe and we’ll give you a free mouse (pad) in exchange. What kind of giraffe? Well, how about something with giraffe spots on it? Or maybe a picture of a giraffe, or a stuffed toy giraffe? Use your imagination. Just drop off your giraffe at our studio location at 292 Santa Fe Avenue in Alamosa (across from the Rio Grande Inn) during our normal business hours of 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday (we take a lunch from noon to 1) and we’ll give you a cool mouse pad. Thank you for helping us grow our Giraffe collection!

And the fine print: This offer is valid only while our supply of mouse pads last. Sorry, we can’t mail it to you. Questions: call us at 719 206 3013. Void where prohibited by law. No real giraffes, please. No cash exchanges. No illegal or banned items, etc., etc.
