Lonestar Cell MTN is expected today to give away another L$1 million to a lucky subscriber in the “One Hundred Reasons to Smile every day” promotion.
According to Lonestar, about a month ago the company launched the Lonestar discount store, where subscribers could dial 500 and get the best deals ever in the communications market, adding that, over 3,000 subscribers enjoy the discount promotion.
“That is not all, we’re also going to change lives by ensuring that every month we will be having a subscriber that will be walking away with L$1 million for the next four months and that’s what we mean when we say we are changing lives, and we tell you that Christmas is here early and is here for you,” the statement said.
The promotion, which started on October 1, will end today, Friday, December 29, at the Lonestar point of sale (POS) office in Barnesville Estate.
“The company is always ready to live up to its corporate social responsibility by ensuring that it supports government’s efforts in providing the Liberian people value-added services and at the same time ensure that customers are happy.
“Today is one of those days that Lonestar Cell MTN is going to be doing what we are known to do for the Liberian people. We are going to be changing lives because we’re going to give our many subscribers one hundred reasons to smile,” a statement from the company said.
In another development, Lonestar Cell MTN through its Mobile Money Department at the weekend identified with two needy groups in the country.
The groups that benefited from the company’s donation were the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home in Monrovia and the Rafiki Children Village in Margibi County.
At the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home, the company donated some assorted food items, sanitary pads, a generator and a set of television. The company also donated some educational materials, toys, assorted food items and sports materials such as footballs and jerseys to the children.
In addition to the donation at Rafiki Village, the GSM group also held a children’s party for kids at the Christian-based orphanage.
The head of Lonestar Cell MTN Mobile Money, Massa Dennis, said the initiative was the company’s own way of giving back to society, especially the underprivileged, during this festive season. She said the donation is an ongoing initiative by the Mobile Money Division of Lonestar Cell MTN.
Receiving the items on behalf of the disabled group, the Home Supervisor of the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home, Jonah Y. Dolakeh, thanked the company for the kind gesture and appealed to the Government of Liberia (GoL), other companies operating within the borders of the country, as well as philanthropic individuals and groupings to follow a good example of Lonestar Cell MTN.
“On behalf of the Board of this center, we want to thank Lonestar Cell MTN for reaching out to us to give us some Christmas gifts. This is not the company’s first time doing this for us; similar donations have been done here on three different occasions,” Dolakeh recalled.
Also at the Rafiki Village, the Lonestar Cell MTN Mobile Money boss said the company’s visit was to appreciate and add a further boost to the missionaries’ work.
She said being a responsible company, Lonestar Cell MTN endeavors to always live up to its corporate social responsibility as long as it continues to operate within the borders of Liberia.
“We are here today to spend the Christmas with our children, who are the future of this great nation. Our aim is to show you how we, as a company, care for everyone. Our operations cut across all limits,” Massa added.
In addition to the donation, the company also opened mobile money accounts for both homes where people of goodwill will contribute.
