A million hours of giving. That’s a lot of hours!

Can you believe it’s almost the end of January already? As we are nearing the end of the first month of 2018, I was thinking of all the events that have transpired over the past year. 2017 was a wild one for our family! There was one thing really left an impression on me. No, not my accident and the fact that I had to take a forced break from social media for six months so I could recover. The thing that I thought of was how TELUS is always committed to giving back to the communities in which we live to make the future friendlier for all Canadians.
With this being 2018, this will be mark my 18 years of being a TELUS customer. Not only is TELUS a reliable wireless network provider, but they also offer great services. It’s not just the fact that they are my carrier of preference, but what makes me an even more loyal fan of TELUS is all the other things they offer their community. It’s the initiatives and programs like Give Where We Live, TELUS WISE, TELUS Health that really impress me.
Of course, it is no surprise to me that TELUS volunteers more hours than any other Canadian company.
Canadians pledged their time for causes they cared about:
30% for a greener planet
22% for a healthier Canada
20% for educating youth
28% for stronger communities
$482M Community contribution since 2000 put towards education, health, and the environment.
7.7M Hours that TELUS team members and retirees have volunteered since 2000.
My nine year old daughter and I have been thoroughly enjoying reading about how Canadians from coast to coast are donating their time and effort, as giving back is something that is very important to our family as well. In fact, we have some pretty BIG news coming up soon and I am gushing with excitement to finally be able to talk about it…soon!
In the meantime, check out a million hours of giving!
