THANK YOU FOR MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE FOR YOUTH IN CANADA. THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE!
In 2022, GetConnected Media and TELUS Friendly Future Foundation® (the Foundation) offered Canadians an incredible giveaway. One that gave you a chance to win something while making a difference in your community.
Thanks to supporters like you, the Foundation, in collaboration with TELUS Canadian Community Boards, made a difference in the lives of over 2 million youth in communities across Canada in 2022. Five hundred forty-eight grants were issued to Canadian registered charities, totalling $10.6 million in funding. 100% of all donations from community members went towards tackling the most pressing issues facing our youth, thanks to their founding partner TELUS who covers 100% of the Foundation’s administrative costs.
In 2023, we are doing it all over again! But first, we want you to meet a young person you helped, thanks to your support.
Olivia was born with Rett syndrome. It’s a rare neurological and developmental disorder that causes children to lose their ability to speak and move. It’s often difficult to diagnose; unfortunately, no known cure exists. Let’s find out more about her in the video below.
Thanks to funding from the Foundation, technology like Olivia’s Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) changed her life by maximizing her independence. The momentum we built together last year has continued to raise awareness of what the Foundation does so it can help more youth like Olivia.
So, let’s do it again, Canada!
To help the Foundation continue tackling the most pressing issues facing youth today, they’ve graciously donated two prizes. One that will help you stay connected to your community and one that will help you give back to a cause you’re passionate about.
Samsung Galaxy S22 stands as one of the best smartphones of 2022. With a robust update schedule, 128 GB of storage, and the power of Google’s Android OS, it has everything you need to “GetConnected” and stay connected. This certified pre-owned device is valued at $935.
If we had that extra dollar, many of us would give it to a worthy cause. So, that’s why the other part of the prize is an opportunity to giveaway a $500 donation to a Canadian registered charity of your choice.
The combination of both prizes is valued at $1435.
We’re fortunate to have a fantastic community that puts maximum effort into every giveaway. We hope you can put the same effort in for the over 2 million youth in communities across Canada that the Foundation supports every year.
