Over 2,200 team members from FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), a leading global express transportation company, have actively gathered more than 8,000 kilograms of essential supplies for over 30 non-profit organizations (NGOs) across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region.
In Singapore, the Purple Tote Campaign, conducted in partnership with local NGO Club Rainbow, aimed to bring joy to children facing chronic illnesses during the holiday season. FedEx team members contributed items such as toys and clothes to benefit young beneficiaries. Additionally, 50 new books were donated to Club Rainbow’s library for educational purposes.
These contributions were part of the annual FedEx Cares Purple Tote Campaign, conducted from October to December 2023, empowering FedEx team members to support the NGOs they value most in their local communities. Volunteers from 18 markets, including Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United Arab Emirates, participated in the program.
This year, team members formed teams of various sizes across the region. Each team collaborated with their chosen charities, collecting and distributing essential goods in FedEx Cares purple tote bags. Over 2,400 beneficiaries, including young children, the elderly, and underserved groups, received goods from FedEx team members.
Kawal Preet, president of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region at FedEx Express, commented, “Every action that improves our world, no matter how small, is something extraordinary. These individual donations under our FedEx Cares program have created new opportunities for our team members to multiply the positive impact FedEx makes in the local communities where we live and work.”
Eric Tan, managing director of FedEx Express Singapore, stated, “At FedEx, we are committed to creating a positive impact in the communities we serve. Our collaboration with Club Rainbow provides our team members the opportunity to support the less fortunate from local communities. Seeing our employees come together to support this initiative is truly inspiring. We hope to create more possibilities for the youth of Singapore.”
As part of FedEx Cares, team members worldwide are encouraged to ‘Drive forward. Give back’ by volunteering and participating in acts of caring throughout the year. In April 2023, FedEx teams across AMEA engaged in the ’50 Days of Caring’ program to celebrate FedEx’s 50th anniversary, mobilizing over 1,000 FedEx volunteers and their families in community-based activities focused on sustainability, environmental protection, education, welfare, and support for the underserved.
