On Thursday, April 6, some 9,000 Virgin Islanders were treated to a tasty surprise. The “Better Together” team of Innovative and Choice Wireless employees took to the streets offering orange-iced Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Wearing shirts sporting cheery messages such as “Treat yourself; You deserve it,” “Hello, sunshine” and “Donut worry; be happy,” Innovative and Choice Wireless staff members offered doughnuts to the delight of people and businesses on St. John, St. Croix and St. Thomas.
“We are spreading happiness one doughnut at a time with a message that something new and exciting is coming for U.S. Virgin Islanders,” said project spokesperson Jennifer Matarangas-King. “We wanted everyone to share in the excitement with us.”
“Our goal was to reach out to as many people as possible, as fast as possible. This project was to show our gratitude to the community and to start the expectation that many good, new things are on the horizon for the premier telecommunications provider in the U.S. Virgin Islands” Matarangas-King said.
Doughnuts were delivered to government agencies, businesses and non-profit organizations throughout the territory. Residents will find another big surprise at www.BetterTogetherVI.com, where the doughnut fun will continue, and they’ll get a chance to win tickets to the Justin Bieber Purpose World Tour concert in San Juan on April 18.
Winners with the best “Bieber-ized” doughnut will be announced on Thursday, April 12. An announcement is expected to be made on Tuesday, April 18, concerning the merged “Better Together” companies of Innovative and Choice Wireless.
