TELUS has just launched its #LoveFromTheWest campaign, a social media contest encouraging Western Canadians to embrace their love for the place they call home — and there are some fantastic prizes to be won.
One lucky Alberta resident and one lucky BC resident will win a charitable donation of $2,500 made in their name to a non-profit organization of their choosing, and a cheque for $2,500 to help them explore the West however they’d like — be it a trip to the mountains, a staycation, or whatever suits their fancy. And to help each winner relax at home, they’ll also win a brand new Samsung smart TV.
If the thought of Western Canada conjures a warm and fuzzy feeling inside of you or makes you want to proclaim your love for it from the rooftops or mountains, now’s your chance to make it pay off — literally.
To enter, share a photo, video, or heartfelt message sharing what you love most about the West on your Facebook or Instagram profile, tag @telus, and don’t forget to include the hashtag #LoveFromTheWest.
Maybe you need a little inspiration before you pen your very own love letter to the West? Don’t worry, we’ve got you.
Let’s be honest, if there’s one thing Western Canadian locals know, it’s that we’ve got it pretty good. The natural landscapes of the West are among the most beautiful in the world, and frankly, Alberta and BC are in a class of their own when it comes to beauty.
With glistening blue lakes, rugged wilderness, beautiful beaches, and the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains, Western Canadians don’t have to look far to witness breathtaking grandeur. Couple this with the fact that exciting adventures like camping, hiking, skiing, and all kinds of exploring can be found around every corner, it’s hard not to fall in love and show it off, right?
So that scenic photo from your recent Western Canada road trip, or a video that captures your favourite summer spot could be your ticket to score the prize.
But, why exactly is TELUS holding a contest that celebrates the West, you may ask?
Western Canada is where TELUS found its footing, and it’s where the company’s own love story first began. The company has always made it a priority to give back to Alberta and BC, because it believes being a Western Canadian means looking out for one another as friends, colleagues, and neighbours, which keeps the strong community bond alive and well.
Western Canadians are defined by their compassion, grit and entrepreneurial spirit. We’ve
overcome everything from wildfires to flash floods and TELUS was always right there beside us. In TELUS’s 100+ years in Western Canada, it’s invested $117 billion connecting people to what matters, has given $530 million to local charities and community organizations, and volunteered more than 11 million hours to deliver on its commitment of being the most giving company in the world.
TELUS is also helping to make Western Canada greener by powering its Vancouver headquarters with renewable energy, and recently supported BC’s most significant marine cleanup.
So whether your deepest love for the West comes from the sense of community, the natural beauty of its surroundings, its wildlife, or its non–stop opportunities for adventure, TELUS wants you to join in and celebrate it all.
