As We Day events continue to make its way across North America and with the movement growing leaps and bounds, it couldn’t be more of a perfect time to launch the We365 app this Friday, October 18th.
A venture between Free the Children and TELUS, the We365 app is a free mobile tool that will allow students to track and verify their volunteer hours for school (how brilliant is that?!) as well as to provide tools to help fundraise, take action and spread messages for many charities.
We365 will be a social platform where youth can find and share inspiring content with like-minded individuals while supporting their charities at the same time. It’s all about spreading social good and having TELUS on board was a natural fit.
TELUS’s Earn Your Way challenges will engage youth in sharing their activities in promoting social good, like sharing a photo of their act of change. In return, kids can have a chance to win exclusive opportunities like a hike with Spencer West, day trip with Free the Children founder Craig Kielburger or even TELUS scholarships and grants.
Being that the app is social based with integration to Twitter and Facebook, TELUS is staying on top of online safety with the TELUS WISE and TELUS WISE Footprint Internet Safetly programs built into the We365 app.
