Hamilton, Bermuda – March 13, 2023. The Friends of Hope Academy, Charity #722 and The Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy were the most recent beneficiaries of Digicel’s Pick & Give initiative. Over the Christmas season and into the New Year, Digicel customers visiting retail stores were able to pick the donation that would be given to the school.


The Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy is a uniquely positioned member of the Bermuda Public School System, staffed and equipped to serve students who present with severe to profound multiple learning disabilities, and, complex care needs. The donation of five Samsung tablets to the school will help students enhance their learning abilities and skills through the use of everyday technology.


The Academy’s mission is to serve students with exceptional needs, by supporting them through collaboration with their families and community organisations, to ensure that they achieve their ultimate potential.


Digicel introduced Pick & Win as the new gamified way to win MORE in the MyDigicel app, so in order to make this real for customers, and to thank the surrounding communities, the concept was translated into Pick & Give, where customers visiting Digicel retail stores, could help pick a gift to give back to the Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy.


Arisha-Rene Butterfield, Marketing Executive of Digicel Bermuda said, “We are honored to have the Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy as one of our community partners, and we continue to support their efforts of bringing awareness to the school and their amazing students. Through our Pick & Give initiative, we were able to get the community involved, and excited about giving back, by asking them to help us choose the donation we would make.”


Margaret Phillips, Principal of the Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy said, “On behalf of the members of the board of Friends of Hope Academy, and the students and staff of DMB Hope Academy, I wish to thank you for our Christmas gifts of Samsung Tablets! The novel manner in which you engaged the community in this Christmas Gift activity was thoughtful, and heart-warming, and the winning vote is timely. Thank you Bermuda for participating. We appreciate every one of our donors and members of the wider community who support the work that we do. These tablets will go a long way in helping members of the Dame team to action individual student and school wide goals.”
