This Saturday, May 23rd marks the 8th annual Telus Day of Giving!

"We Give Where We Live" is the motto that brings together 13,000+ Telus volunteers, their families and friends together in over 40 regions across the province to do good in their community. Services have included putting in hours at local food banks, homeless shelters, helping out at local hospitals and park maintenance etc.

Check out Michelle's Story below, it'll give you some insight to how Team Telus has been giving where they live!

You can also learn more about Telus day of giving here.

Right here in Ottawa team Telus will be rolling up their sleeves and helping prepare the Youville Center school grounds for the summer. Painting, planting flowers and yard work will be done in no time - all for the community.

We had our hearts set on helping Team Telus out tomorrow in Ottawa but unfortunate events occurred which caused us to have to turn down the opportunity. It would have been a great opportunity to further teach my oldest daughter hands-on about doing social good in our city.

We may not be able to be there in person but Telus has a special way in which we can still participate with the "Give Where We Live" photo contest!

It's easy for you to participate too! Simply visit http://givewherewelive.ca and upload a picture demonstrating how you give where you live! 10 prizes of $10,000 each will be donated to the final winners favourite charity!

As always you can participate in the fun and follow the 8th annual Telus Day of giving on twitter @Telus with hashtag #givewherewelive
