What’s Your Dream Day? #ActsOfCaring

luxury-spaIf you could do anything for one whole day, what would you do? If you could be anybody for a whole day, who would you be?

My perfect day would start with a morning spent at the spa! No kids, no husband, just me getting massages and facials and soaking in a tub. I’d love to spend the afternoon ziplining with the family, and then have a private dinner, just for my husband and I, cooked by a fabulous chef in a beautiful place with a view.

What about you? Would you want a day of pampering and luxury? Would you want to live out your dream of being an astronaut, the mayor of your city, or learning to surf in Bali? Now imagine being GIVEN the OPPORTUNITY to live your dream for a day?

TELUS’ Grand Gestures Campaign is all about saying thank you to the communities it serves and to its’ loyal customers for sticking with them. TELUS believes that a simple thank you can go a long way, and while it would be easier to text or call someone, they believe that some thank yous are better share in person. TELUS gave a loyal customer, Ramona, a big surprise to thank you for being such a great customer for almost 20 years – check out thevideo below- and don’t forget to have tissues by your side!

The TELUS Care-a-Van team will be in Guelph, Ontario this week to host events and activities to perform acts of caring all over the community.

  • Everytime you use the hashtag #ActsOfCaring , TELUS will be donating $5 to the Guelph Children’s Foundation.
  • TELUS will be going door to door to the homes of their top 100 customers to thank them personally with a care package.
  • A free BBQ lunch for TELUS’ top 1000 customers and their families at the local TELUS store.

It’s refreshing to see a brand care so much about their customers, as well as the community. I’m proud to say that I’m a TELUS customer (although I don’t think they’ll be dropping on my door stop anytime soon to grant me my day of pampering and luxury!). Are you a loyal TELUS customer? If you could do anything for a day, what would it be?

      It really is a cool thing that they’re doing! Ooh, a poolside day would be nice 🙂

    My day would be pretty similar. I think anything that doesn’t involve a toddler hanging off of me or my kids whining and screaming at me would be perfect!
