Giving back to our furry friends in need, this holiday season

It’s no secret that at TELUS we love our animals. Big ones, furry ones, feathered ones and sneaky ones – to us, they’re all family.  Keeping them and their habitats flourishing for years to come is something near and dear to our hearts.

Across Canada, habitat loss, pollution, climate change and unsustainable harvesting have put more than 676 species at risk of extinction. And I, like many other Canadians, want to help our Canadian critters by protecting them and the lands they call home.

That’s why I am so excited to announce the launch of our new Critter Campaign, in partnership with our friends at World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada. Sharing a passion for conservation of Canadian wildlife, TELUS and WWF are working together to keep our native animals and their homes safe and sound.


This holiday season we are giving Canadians the opportunity to give the adorable gift that gives back to our furry friends; a TELUS plush panda – the perfect stocking stuffer for the animal lover in your family. When you purchase one in-store or online at www.givewherewelive.ca, we will donate the proceeds to WWF.


But the giving doesn’t stop there. Online, we are running a Love Meter that makes a $1 donation to WWF for every tweet, post and photo using the hashtag #hometweethome*. As well, for everyone who visits givewherewelive.ca and likes or shares what they see as they explore the site, we’ll give an additional $1.

As an animal lover, knowing that my gift of a TELUS panda to my loved ones this holiday season will give something back to our Canadian wildlife is awesome. What better way to spread the love during the hustle and bustle of the season? Get yours today and feel extra good giving that plush friend a hug knowing that you helped make a difference. Oh, and to all my friends and family, get ready for a new family member real soon!

*to a maximum of $250,000.
