Blink Bmobile’s Technology Department bring Christmas joy to Plain View

Port-of-Spain,Trinidad - The technology department of Blink Bmobile recently hosted a Christmas extravaganza for the kids of Plain View home, Arima. The event was the positive result of thoughtful planning and a pool of donations from the staff of all the different sub-units within the Technology department. But the best part was the response of the children – absolute joy and gratitude as they enjoyed all that was done for them by BLINK bmobile technology department staffers. The home for abandoned children was transformed into a virtual wonderland as the Blink Bmobile staff not only catered food and drinks for the kids and Plain View employees but also supplied a giant bouncy castle, music, parang and face painting much to the children’s enjoyment. In keeping with the holiday spirit the TSTT employee volunteers performed parang music as well as Christmas classics and even brought out Santa Claus for the occasion. The activity, spearheaded by BLINK bmobile technology department staff members, was all part of the company’s “Bundles of Love” Christmas corporate social responsibility initiative. It was not only fun and touching for the children but also for the Blink Bmobile staff. Portia Rosseau of Technology Site Engineering shared that spending time with the kids erecting the Christmas tree and being involved with all the activities of the day caused her to develop a bond and an emotional connection to them. Manager of the IPTV Service Assurance Centre, Ian Rodriguez said, “The group is so moved from this experience that we plan to adopt the home on a year round basis and take care of its needs such as computers, books, etc. Vice President of Technology George Hill echoed his sentiments saying, “This is fantastic, I believe as a corporation we should give back in several productive ways in addition to financial contributions. Just being here today inspires us to brainstorm about what more we can do to keep the smiles on these children's faces beyond the Christmas season.” The 30 year old Plain View home houses both boys and girls ranging from ages 3 to 18. The home is dedicated to keeping siblings/the family unit together instead of separating the boys from the girls. Head of the Plain View home, Sr. Gail offered this statement about the enjoyable day and the initiative, “I am very glad about it, the decorations today are beautiful and it is a pleasure to see the staff so involved with the kids. The young ones are really enjoying it, and the blessing of a relaxed, happy atmosphere is truly appreciated.”,The technology department of Blink Bmobile recently hosted a Christmas extravaganza for the kids of Plain View home, Arima.
