Thanks to a million-dollar prize from Digicel, the dream of building a house of his own is finally within reach for Dustant Sherwood, a 46-year old truck driver from Broadgate, St. Mary.
Sherwood is the fourth weekly millionaire in Digicel’s ‘Merry Millions’ Christmas promotion. The father of three received the key to his life-long dream of home ownership when Digicel made a surprise visit to his worksite to deliver the good news and a cheque for one million dollars.
“It’s a great feeling, winning this money,” Sherwood said. “This money is going to help me get ahead, both to finish building my house and send my kids to school and other stuff like that. I’m really glad for it because I really got it when I needed it the most. There couldn’t have been a more opportune time to win something like this.”
Overcome with gratitude, Sherwood added, “This is the first time I’ve won anything, anywhere. And to win a million dollars the first time! It’s amazing! I’ve been a loyal customer of Digicel from day one and after this Christmas gift, I even worse don’t have a reason to change that.”
Sean Latty, Chief Operations Officer at Digicel noted, “Dustant’s win this week is a win for the entire Digicel family and we’re very pleased to know he can finally achieve his long-time dream of owning a home. Being able to reward our customers in such a way that it enhances their lives is just as rewarding for us too, because our aim this Christmas is to make dreams come true for as many of our customers as possible; there’s no better gift than that!”
So far, three other Digicel customers are spending their Christmas holidays one million dollars richer, and two more will join the merry bunch before the end of the year. A total of 42,000 customers overall will win a share of J$20M in cash and prizes in the ‘Merry Millions’ Christmas promotion, which ends December 31, 2015.
With millions in free credit, data, smartphones and other great prizes up for grabs, all new and existing prepaid and postpaid Digicel customers and Digicel Play customers are eligible to win. Once customers top up with $200 or more, activate a two-day plan or higher, talk for ten minutes or more on their postpaid phone or pay their 4G Broadband or Digicel Play bill on time and in full, they can qualify to win.
