Digicel Grenada will endeavour to “Brighten Someone’s Christmas” as the telecommunications company rolled out its 2013 Christmas Promotion.
Known as the “Be Extraordinary” and with headquarters at Point Saline, Digicel was lavishly lighted with Christmas lights last week Friday evening as the company prepared to brighten the lives of its customers during the festive season.
The first five charitable organisations to benefit from the Digicel Promotion were presented with their cheques for $5,000.00 each during the company’s launch.
The Grenada Patient Kidney Foundation received a cheque from the Digicel Customer Care Department, the Programme for Adolescence Mothers (PAM) was presented with a cheque by the Finance Department and the Top Hill Senior Home in Carriacou received its $5000.00 cheque from the Sales Department.
In addition, the Digicel Technical Team presented the Father Mallagan Home with its cheque while the Marketing Department presented a cheque to the St Andrew’s Methodist Healthy Habits Initiative.
In a brief address, Digicel Country Manager, Patricia Maher said that her company is putting a lot into this year’s promotion for the benefit of its valued customers.
She stressed that the “Be Extraordinary” company regards its customers as family and the promotion was organised with the objective of sharing with the family members during the festive season.
According to Maher, Digicel will soon host a Christmas party at its head office for children with special needs.
Marketing Manager, Kirk Seetahal said that this year promotion will see five persons declared as winners with each receiving $10,000.00.
As part of the promotion, Digicel will dispatch one of its representatives, Lexan Medford-Fletcher along with a camera crew from the Grenada Broadcasting Network (GBN) to specifically ask the winners to explain how they intend to spend their winnings in one day.
Seetahal disclosed that the customary grand prize-winner of their annual promotion, which boiled down to one individual, was scrapped this year in order to enable more customers to win money prizes.
“There will be no grand prize winner this year as was done in previous years but this year we have decided to spread it around and there will be five weekly winners who will have to spend that EC$10,000 winnings in 24 hours,” Seetahal said.
The telecoms company will also offer other gifts to lucky customers in the promotion such as credits and cell phones.
Seetahal said that the “Be Extraordinary” company looks forward to the launching of its Computer Lab project in St Patrick’s valued $51,000.00 as well as the completion of the Adult Home Bathroom and Toilet refurbishment at the Charles Memorial Home in Diamond, St. Mark at a cost of $31,000.00.
“We owe it to give back,” Seetahal later told the media.
The Digicel Christmas Promotion began last week Friday and concludes at the end of December.
