Based on the beloved best-selling novel, Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with Treacher Collins syndrome and desperately wants to fit in with other children his age.
When Auggie enters mainstream elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
Unfortunately, bullying is an issue too many children can relate to. Research shows that
42% of youth are cyberbullied each month. There is good news, too. The same study also
shows that 71% of youth want to do something about it.
It’s the reason why Entertainment One and TELUS have teamed up to spread the word
about Wonder, and help inspire Canadians to #ChooseKind and #RiseAbove bullying. From
Feb. 13 to March 12, every time you rent Wonder on Optik TV’s channel 330, the two
companies will each give $1.00* to WE Charity.
WE is a worldwide development charity and youth empowerment movement founded by
Canada-based human rights advocates Marc and Craig Kielburger. Through its family of organizations, WE encourages and enables youth, families, and companies to create
positive social change in local communities and around the world.
eOne, which has exclusive rights to distribute Wonder in Canada, has also paired with
TELUS WISE, a free educational program that empowers Canadians to be safe online, to
help bring the story of Wonder to life in the classroom.
Together, the partners have developed guides for parents and teachers to use to help youth #RiseAbove bullying and make their school and the Internet a better place for children like Auggie: We’re All Wonders Educators’ Guide September 2017 and Wonder Educators’ Guide September 2017.
By renting Wonder on channel 330 today, you can help us inspire youth to spread the anti-
bullying message – both in their physical world and online.
*TELUS and eOne will each give up to a maximum of $10,000 to WE Charity, with a total combined of $20,000.
