“ Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.”
This past weekend my daughter and I volunteered with TELUS to help clean up the Great Canadian shoreline. I love participating in these types of giving back events because giving back to the community feels so good on the inside. In fact, studies show that giving back is really beneficial for our well-being.
I know first-hand if I’m feeling a little down in the dumps, and stressed, I always feel better when I do something nice for others. Sometimes this is a simple gesture, a thank you note to a friend, or offering to take my nephew off my busy sister’s hands for the day. Whatever the good deed, it always uplifts my mood.
Giving has a positive ripple effect, and working with TELUS has been one of my favorite partnerships because they are literally the most giving company in Canada!
Last year I wrote about my experience giving back with TELUS for TELUS Days of Giving. You can read it here.
This year it was so nice to bring my youngest daughter along for TELUS Days of Giving. I love volunteering with my family. I feel it’s so important to practice these acts of giving, rather than just preaching the importance of it.
We had so much fun cleaning up the Great Canadian Shoreline. It was an awesome way to give back to the community and spend the day!
Do you like volunteering with your family?
