TELUS Makes A Pair Of Announcements Today

TELUS has got some great initiatives launching this week and I’d like to highlight two of the announcements that they’ve got on the go this week:

Meet TELUS’ Friendly Future Makers

Today TELUS announced the seven recipients of our inaugural Friendly Future Makers Awards. Launched this past August, Friendly Future Maker Awards program is a nation-wide search for young Canadians creating positive and long-lasting change in their communities. 

After receiving hundreds of heartfelt nominations across the country, seven Friendly Future Makers were selected by a panel of TELUS judges. Each Friendly Future Maker will receive a prize pack worth $7,000, including $5,000 to be placed in an RESP or to help fund an initiative of their choosing, a $1,000 TELUS gift card, and a $1,000 donation to a registered charity of their choice.

Here is the link to the media release for more information.

Supporting Amnesty International Canada

In light of the continued unrest in Iran, throughout November, TELUS is raising funds through TELUS Friendly Future Foundation to support Amnesty International Canada’s work in protecting women’s and children’s human rights globally. 

To help support this initiative, Canadians can text DONATE to 41010 to give $20 to TELUS Friendly Future Foundation in support of Amnesty International Canada.

In addition, TELUS Health has initiated a 24/7 free crisis hotline available to all those in need of emotional support at 1-844-751-2133. International support is also available here.

There will be more coming from TELUS later this week so watch for posts in the coming days.
