There’s no doubting that the last year was difficult for everyone. But so many of us persevered despite less contact with our family, friends and local businesses and fewer resources due to lockdowns and restrictions. However, with a new year ahead of us, Total Wireless is recognizing those who found a way to “Do Amazing” things, despite all of the challenges we’ve faced, with the launch of the Total Wireless Awards. The Total Wireless Awards are honoring inspiring individuals and organizations that went above and beyond to “Do Amazing” things in 2020. From discovering creative ways to stay connected virtually to starting new charitable organizations that help those in need, these honorees found amazing ways to thrive and support their communities during uncertain times.
Total Wireless has narrowed it down to four inspirational, fun and heartwarming stories and needs your help in selecting a ’fan favorite’. One lucky grand prize winner will receive a special prize, and all of the people and organizations featured will be receiving a year’s worth of Total Wireless service and the latest Samsung smartphones and tablets so they can continue to “Do Amazing” things in the years ahead.
