Digicel's Jamaica 50 Gift
DIGICEL GIVES AWAY A MASSIVE JA$220 MILLION IN FREE CREDIT TO CELEBRATE JAMAICA'S GOLDEN ACHIEVEMENTS
$100 free credit to call anywhere for each and every one of Digicel's 2.2 million customers across Jamaica
Monday, 6th August, 2012 – Kingston, Jamaica.
To say 'thank you' to Jamaica in our 50th year of Independence and to celebrate the amazing achievements of Jamaicans over that period – and indeed just this past weekend - Digicel is today giving each and every one of its 2.2 million customers $100 free credit to call anywhere.
With Digicel Ambassadors Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce both taking gold in their respective 100 metres Olympic finals and the West Indies winning the Digicel Series, Digicel's gift to Jamaica totals a staggering JA$220 million in free credit and is Digicel's way of saying 'thank you' to its valued customers for years of support and to mark the milestone of 50 years of Independence coupled with the wonderful achievements over that time.
Digicel is the largest supporter of sports in Jamaica and is proud to have sponsored the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, since 2004, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce since 2008 and now the entire Jamaican Olympic team.
Mark Linehan, Digicel Jamaica CEO, commented, "As a company born and bred in Jamaica, we are brimming with pride and excitement for so many different reasons: Jamaica's 50th year of Independence, the stunning displays of sporting prowess at the Olympics by the Jamaican athletes and in particular of course Usain and Shelly-Ann, the Digicel Test at Sabina where the Windies triumphed over New Zealand – the list is endless."
He continued: "Digicel is proudly Jamaican and, at this most meaningful of times for the country, we are happy to join with our customers in marking the occasion and celebrating Jamaica. On behalf of the entire Digicel family, we would like to say "big up Jamaica" and here's to the next 50 years of greatness."
