Variety believes every child who has special needs is a champion, and we’re inspired by their courage and determination. What may seem like everyday accomplishments are epic achievements for Variety’s kids – what we call “little victories”. It takes teamwork to provide the help needed to make little victories happen, and we’re thrilled to have had the support of TELUS from the start.
Like Variety, TELUS provides service to families throughout British Columbia, and appreciates the value of being a good corporate citizen. The company has built its reputation on the mandate “Give Where You Live”, and the success of this campaign is helping to build stronger and more sustainable communities right across the province.
During Telethon weekend, viewers call in from all over British Columbia to make a donation. All this is made possible thanks to the telecommunication service and telephones provided as a gift-in-kind by TELUS. On average, over 16,000 pledges are taken by hundreds of volunteers during the two-day Telethon weekend. It is absolutely vital to the success of our signature fundraiser.
But to help more children, Variety fundraises throughout the year and holds Radiothons in key communities across B.C. Once again TELUS is there, providing the phones and service for an event where everything raised in the community stays in the community.
At Variety’s 49th annual Show of Hearts Telethon on Global BC February 14th and 15th, together with TELUS we’ll be celebrating the achievements of children who have special needs and the incredible teamwork that makes little victories happen. Subscribers to TELUS Optik TV can also watch the show on Channel #104 (Global BC HD) and Channel #9104 (Global BC).
