There are so many amazing companies out there doing amazing things! You know who I mean, you see the commercials and the videos and you’re proud to support a company that gives back to their customers! Telus is one of these companies for sure, and they have an amazing Act of Caring campaign going on where they’re doing some really fun stuff for their customers.
With this in mind, TELUS gave loyal customer, Ramona, a big surprise to thank her for being such a great customer for almost 20 years. Ramona had told TELUS that she loves aviation, so the whole day was structured around her interests and desire to ride on an aerial plane –she even got to fly it!
If you could do anything for a day, what would it be? And what would you do as your own act of caring for someone else?
I love this idea – so fun and really shows how creative and thankful a company can be. What a great surprise!
And Telus didn’t stop there! Ramona’s surprise was just the beginning. The TELUS Care-a-Van team is rolling into town this week with a host of events and activities that will be taking place all week long to specially thank TELUS local customers and the Guelph community.
TELUS is literally performing everyday acts of caring all over the Guelph community throughout the week. As part of this, we’re donating $5 to the Guelph Children’s Foundation for every use of #actsofcaring.
We’re going door to door to the homes of our top 100 customers to thank them personally with a care package – a small token of our appreciation. We’re hosting a free BBQ lunch for our top 1000 customers and their families at the local TELUS store. We’ll be presenting a cheque to the Guelph Children’s Foundation in the amount of $5000 – in response to all theuses of #actsofcaring. Donald Woodley (member ofTELUS Board of Directors) will join our celebration to present the cheque.
It’s great to see a company doing this and really hope it encourages others to give back too. We get to choose who we want to give our business too, I prefer to give it to companies who treat their employees well, their customers well of course too – but are community minded!
It’s inspiring too to think of all the small acts we can each do to improve someones day – doesn’t have to be anything big, sometimes the smallest gesture of kindness can turn around a bad day! 🙂
