Powered by Mom wants to know how would you like to be appreciated? #ActsOfCaring
As moms, aunts, sisters, grandmothers and of course women in general (and yes let’s not forget the guys) all too often between jobs, children, cleaning the house and well life we just keep on moving along. Let’s face it sometimes we may not think about it until it happens when someone in our life shows us some appreciation for all we do or maybe it wast just for something small. However that show of appreciation no matter how big or small warms our hearts.
It’s amazing how far a hug and thank you can go but I also wouldn’t turn down dinner out at a favourite restaurant or having the house cleaned by someone else besides me! That’s why I love it when companies like Telus go and recognize their customers with things like their #actsofcaring campaign! Telus has impressed me before by their motto of giving where you live, how they give their employees time off to volunteer and the sheer amount of time and money they donate to communities throughout Canada. In fact I was so impressed when I first learned about what they did that I wrote a post about it and shared a video about Michelle (no not me) who lives not far from me and how she helps out her community. Telus went and helped Michelle so she could give even more where she lived.
So Telus is at it again with their #actsofcaring and I get to share another tear jerker of a video with you (don’t worry it’s short) where it just goes to show how gestures big and small can make a difference. I just wish that more brands like Telus gave back to their communities and showed how much they appreciated their customers. I think if a company wants people’s business they have to show they want to give back to their customers and their community, that they truly appreciate that their customers have chosen them.
So check out this video:
If you could have your friends, family or work show you how they’d appreciate you what would that look like?
Here’s some of what you my readers and friends shared with me on how you’d like to be appreciated!
I think the words “thank you” aren’t used enough! I honestly pause when someone tells me that now because it’s so rare. Just two little words, but they mean a lot!
I like it when my husband takes the time to write me a “love note” to thank me for doing even little things.
For me I know my friends and I appreciate each other because we’re always there to help each other no matter what and whenever. I guess the fact that we give and help one another is they way I know we appreciate each other.
I like it when I come home from work and my daughter has cleaned up without being told, or even prepared dinner for me so I don’t have to do that when I get home
I like hugs!
For myself if you didn’t guess from the picture I like hugs and kisses from my daughter for a show of appreciation to me 🙂
