Laura Kim & TELUS

Generosity in Action - June 2014

Laura Kim is making her world a better place.

A member of Clayton Heights Secondary School’s social awareness program, Project Equal, this year her and her classmates focused their attention on supporting the BC SPCA. In May she presented the BC SPCA with a gift of $10,000, won for the charity of her choice through a TELUS sponsored contest, helping even more animals than she could have imagined! "When I found out I won, I freaked out,” she says describing her elation. “I love animals like crazy and I hate thinking of them being mistreated or hurt.”

TELUS is thrilled to encourage and support young champions like Laura. The contest, hosted through We365, a mobile app created by TELUS and Free The Children to help youth connect and share with like-minded peers and support the causes most important to them.“The key to keeping our communities healthy in the future is ensuring the youth of today are engaged, inspired and educated to positively contribute to their community,” says Katie Griffiths, Senior Program Manager, TELUS. “At TELUS we want to ensure that youth are educated and inspired to give back so that the leaders of tomorrow are ones who are socially aware. Youth like Laura continually amaze us with the passion they have for giving back, and We365 enables them to act upon their desire to make a difference and give where they live.”

We are so grateful to Laura Kim for her compassion and to TELUS, for fostering the giving spirit of so many young people looking to build a better world. Watch the wonderful video that Free The Children & TELUS created to celebrate Laura's donation:
