Events | WeDay 2015 w/ Team Telus Advocates

On Thursday last week Emily and I got up realllllly early and drove down to the ACC to see the red carpet for WeDay with the Team Telus Advocates. I’m pretty sure it was her first time attending a red carpet.¬†She did however, do her first live hit on TV and was seen on Breakfast Television by people across Canada. I’m teaching her the ways of the media early! Don’t mind the pixelated photo and my windy hair.¬† The ACC was filled with about 40K people, mostly students, there to kick off 365 days of making the world a better place. It was a bit overwhelming but¬†totally inspiring. Loved seeing all the¬†performers and speakers including¬†Hozier, Nick Jonas, and Shawn Mendes,¬†Rookie Mag editor-in-chief Tavi Gevinson (LOVE HER) and social change activist Tonika Morgan. It was great spending the day with this group of ladies from the Team Telus Advocates. Having a…

TELUS Day of Giving + Make-A-Wish, Rope for Hope

I took part in a Telus Day of Giving Event with¬†#TeamTelus¬†crew for¬†Make-A-Wish¬ģ Rope for Hope.¬†We rappelled down Toronto City Hall! ¬† I’ve done some rock climbing and adventure things like¬†The Edgewalk,¬†zipline, and¬†sky diving¬†but this was FULL ON. AND DOWNTOWN TORONTO! All money raised by¬†Make-A-Wish¬ģ¬†Rope for Hope¬†rappellers goes to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. ¬† It was really fun. I’m not really one for team sports but I love adventure things like this! It was a litte scary going over the edge but once I started going down it was easy. It took about 10min to go down the entire building. To learn more about¬†Telus Day of Giving¬†and other charitable initiatives through the company, click¬†here¬†or on these cute little animals. HUZZAHHHHHHHHHHH! <3 CASIE

Protecting Canada’s Wildlife w/ Telus #ShopWildly

What do trees, burrowing & short eared owls, polar & grizzly bears, beluga whale, and the Monarch butterfly all have in common? Besides being endangered special in Canada, they’re some of the animals Telus is helping to save. They’re also the ones I donated to! Over the next 5 years Telus is giving $5 million to protect our wildlife.¬†They sent me on a wild shopping spree with $1,000 and I spent it on a ¬†few of my fav Canadian animals and trees.¬†My¬†purchases are going towards protecting our Canadian animals and their habitats, ensuring that wildlife in Canada can stay wild long into the future. Last year as a gift, Telus¬†adopted a Giant Panda from the WWF in my name. I’ve been with Telus for as long as I can remember. My first ever cellphone was with them ages ago when they were Clearnet. ¬† Show your love for Canadian wildlife…

Look what Telus did for one of their longest standing customers…

When I watched this I couldn’t hold back the happy tears. I imagined what it was like for her, what it be like if that was me, or if it was my¬†Dad who has been a Telus customer for almost 20 years too. If it gives you the feels, share with a friend ūüôā This act of kindness to show appreciation is the things dreams are made of. I think it’s incredibly awesome that Telus did this for one of their customers of 20 years.¬†If your day has not been made yet, you will feel like making someone else’s¬†after watching this. A month ago Em and I volunteered at the Harbourfront Community Centre in Toronto for the #givewhereweliveday. Thousands of company employees and friends from across Canada took part that day. This week the¬†Telus Care-a-Van team is in Guelph, ON with a host of events and activities to specially thank…

Telus Day of Giving 2014|Garden Paint Party!

Last weekend EmBot and I volunteered at the¬†ninth annual TELUS Day of Giving w/ 15,000 TELUS team members, ¬†who took part in 700 activities in local communities across Canada. We worked in the garden area painting signs for the community planters. at the Harbourfront Community Centre. It was really fun painting these, thinking about picking some up for the cottage and painting on the dock.   Some of the team with us that day cleaned up the garden area in the middle of the centre. It was lookin’ pretty shabby when we arrived and by the end of the day is was beautiful! We all had lunch in the courtyard to finish the day. ūüôā Until early July, Canadians who share their community giving photos and stories at¬†givewherewelive.ca¬†and on Twitter/Instagram using the hashtag #givewherewelive will have the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 toward the cause of their choice.¬† For…

Next Level Selfie Action | HTC One M8 from Telus

One thing I love about my¬†blog¬†job almost more than the clothes, makeup, jewellery, and trips around the world is GETTING NEW GADGETS! My friends at Telus emailed me on Tuesday to offer me the brand new HTC One M8. I was ecstatic! The device comes out from Telus on April 10th so I’m super stoked to have one before then. I used to have the old HTC One before I spilled water on it. RIP old buddy. I’ve done lots of work with HTC over the last few years and been featured in two HTC¬†campaigns with SayMedia. Last year they had a big one to be the next HTC Influencer and the winner won consulting from me. The winner was Vanessa Grillone and we had a blast working together. Remember this?¬† OK SO THE IMPORTANT THING HERE IS… THE HTC One M8 HAS A DUAL CAMERA! A WHAT? A CAMERA…
