Helping hand from Telus


TELUS has extended its offer of free long distance and wireless services to Japan for an additional month until the end of April.  Since March 11th, nearly 40,000 calls have been placed since the introduction of the free calling initiative. 

In addition, Telus donated $100,000 dollars to relief efforts in Japan through The Canadian Red Cross Society and The Salvation Army.

We encourage you to continue to be part of the relief effort by texting “QUAKE” to 45678 to donate $10. 

“Doing our part to assist in relief efforts in Japan is important for TELUS because this disaster is not only affecting some of our team members, it’s also affecting our customers and their families,” said Jill Schnarr, TELUS vice-president of Community Investment and Engagement. “Through TELUS’ text-to-donate campaign we can have an immediate impact on the organizations working tirelessly to help the victims of this terrible tragedy.”
