Seven lucky people have so far been winners as part of Digicel Diaspora’s Christmas is on Us promotion which saw customers winning return flights home to the Caribbean for Christmas and cash to the value of US$5, 000.
With the sweepstakes set to continue until Dec. 28, there are still chances to win cash, American Airlines tickets and the grand prize of a new car – so continue to send top up and be in with a chance to be a winner.
“It was God answering my prayers,” said Lenbert McBean, winner of $5,000.
McBean who lives on Long Island, NY, won by sending a Digicel top up to a family friend in Jamaica. And this cash prize from Digicel couldn’t have come at a better time as he has come through significant surgery to remove a tumor from his jaw, resulting in a medical bill of over US$4,500.
Marc Prophete, another winner, had sent Digicel top up to a friend in Haiti and was in total disbelief when he received a phone call from the Digicel team.
“Oh, my God!” was his initial reaction to the news. He then passed the phone to his wife who also shouted, “Oh my God!” They are looking forward to a very Merry Christmas with their children, thanks to their $5,000 prize from Digicel.
Digicel Diaspora CEO Declan Cassidy, said: “Our ‘Christmas is on Us’ promotion is our way of giving back to our valued customers at this special time of year – and we are thrilled for our prize winners who will be enjoying a season to remember this year, thanks to Digicel.”
