I’ve never made any bones about loving the Telus brand. Sometimes it seems to be in style to groan and moan about the cable company, but I’ve never had that experience and I think it’s kind of fun to tell other people that.
From the moment I picked up my first Telus flip phone in 1998 to when I switched to Telus Optik Cable and Internet (hello high speed!), I’ve been a happy camper. When I need help with something techy, I pick up the phone and there they are. I’ve even sent out a tweet and had them respond almost instantly, DM’ing me to make sure everything was OK.
I always knew Telus was big on giving back to the community, and I’ve seen evidence over the years of Telus’s involvement right here in my backyard of Vancouver. Whether it’s paying it forward or adorable animal ad campaigns (I have two of those Lionhead bunnies Telus uses in the latest ads, and yes, they are that adorable), Telus has always spread positivity. They probably also scored a few points with bunny enthusiasts everywhere.
Given their community involvement, I wasn’t surprised to hear about the Telus Grand Gestures Campaign. They seemed like one of those companies that would reach out and say thank you to their loyal customers in a personal way, and what better way to say thank you than to take their resources and make a few dreams come true? Check out how Telus reached out and made Ramona’s, a loyal Telus customer for 20 years, dreams come true. The smile on her face made me tear up.

What would I do if I could do anything for one day? I’d fly back to Saskatchewan and visit my family. I have a huge family, with so many first cousins I’ve lost count, and I haven’t seen most of them in eight years. My mom and dad moved back there 5 years ago, and I haven’t seen them in over two years. Come to think of it, I haven’t been to Saskatchewan in over 12 years. Amazing how time just slips away.
I’d like to spend the day (armed with bug spray. Lots and lots of bug spray) driving on the dirt roads near Watson where my grandparents farm was. Sometimes it’s just nice to go home, isn’t it?
Enjoy and share the Telus Grand Gestures Campaign video, and keep your eyes peeled for the Telus Care-a-Van that’s heading out into communities across Canada. Telus is currently going door-to-door in Guelph, handing out gifts to their top customers, and even hosting a BBQ for them. Plus, every time you use the hashtag #Actsofcaring, they’re donating $5 to the Guelph Children’s Foundation.
So take a peek (or two, it’s worth it) at the video, share the #actsofcaring tag on Twitter and Facebook, and subscribe to the Telus Youtube channel to watch the fun.
