Nikala Williams, corporate communications and marketing lead at LIME says that with the company’s “Give A Gift This Christmas” initiative a dollar can go a long way.
Donating as little as a dollar, can go towards the purchase of a gift for an orphan or less fortunate child this Christmas.
Williams said that last year, contributions from internal and external donors enabled LIME to provide more than 250 gifts to orphans and hospitalized children at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, St. Benedict’s Orphanage in Georgetown, the Community Nurses Department and the Prison fellowship of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Williams and the rest of LIME hope that this year more children would be reached by the drive and would put smiles on their faces.
The children are not the only ones to benefit from this initiative, Williams pointed out.
She noted that daily from Monday to Friday, five persons who supported the venture will win a ham or turkey, as a means of encouraging donations.
She urged all customers to be a part of the initiative by giving as little as a dollar, and in doing so, bringing cheer to less fortunate children, and earning a reward in the process.
“Don’t take your pocket change out the door, leave it for the poor,” Williams said.

Family Sundays at LIME
Telecommunications provider LIME is keeping the family tradition in Christmas, with a series of activities on the promenade outside its Kingstown store on Sundays.
