TELUS, together with Free the Children, have come together to co-sponsor the We Day movement and the TELUS Phones for Good campaign. Our youth is our legacy.
On September 28th, TELUS launched a second campaign giving youths aged 13 – 17 a challenge to make a difference in their own community. Youths, aged 13-17 are encouraged to submit their idea showing how they would partner with a local charity to make a positive change in their community. The top ideas with by chosen by Free the Children and TELUS where the winning youth idea will receive $20,000 to help put their idea to work. To learn more about this campaign and to submit your idea for making a difference in your community, go to Telus for We Day.
Need some inspiration? Take a look at this short video to see some ideas already submitted.
This year TELUS, with their campaign co-sponsor Samsung, began the Phones for Good campaign where $25 from the sale of every TELUS Samsung Galaxy SIII or Samsung Ace Q will go toward Free the Children. TELUS and Samsung are encouraging youth to realize their own own potential and create a better future for Canadian youths.
If you are considering a new smart phone purchase either for yourself or for a gift this Christmas, consider purchasing the Samsung Galaxy SIII or Samsung Ace Q through TELUS to help support this important cause.
