TELUS Helps Keep Canadians Safe With New Critter Masks

As parents, teachers, and young Canadians prepare for an unconventional return to class, TELUS is supporting and protecting communities across the country by encouraging Canadians to wear a face mask to protect others from exposure to COVID. Limited-edition, youth-sized masks are now on sale in packs of three for $35 on telus.com as well as in select TELUS stores, with all proceeds going to the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation (TFFF), supporting COVID-19 relief efforts across the country. 

Earlier this year, TELUS team members and retirees embarked on a journey to support Canadian charities working to help those most impacted by the global pandemic with a goal of raising $250,000 for the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation. Since the initial launch in June, the TELUS critter masks have raised more than $200,000 which will go towards the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation’s COVID- 19 relief efforts. In addition, TELUS team members and retirees have sewn more than 130,000 masks as part of TELUS’ annual Days of Giving. 

The reusable cloth masks featuring TELUS’ loveable critters and nature themes are available, in youth and adult sizes, while quantities last. The TELUS branded masks are dual-layered, made out of 100 percent recycled polyester on the outside and 100 percent organic cotton on the inside, adhering to the guidelines set by the TELUS Medical Advisory Council. 

Since the beginning of March, TELUS has dedicated $150 million to support Canadians through the COVID-19 crisis. Driven by the philosophy We Give Where We Live, the TELUS team has contributed $1.3 billion in value, time, and financial support to Canadian charities and grassroots organizations since 2000, making TELUS one of the most giving companies in the world.
