FedEx Express Disadvantaged Youth

More than 2,200 team members of FedEx Express (FedEx) have been actively collecting over 8,000 kilograms of much-needed supplies for more than 30 non-profit organizations (NGOs) of choice across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region. In Singapore, the Purple Tote Campaign was conducted with local NGO Club Rainbow to bring joy to children suffering from chronic illnesses over the holiday season.

FedEx team members donated items like toys and clothes to young beneficiaries. FedEx team members also donated 50 new books to Club Rainbow’s library for educational purposes. These donations of supplies were made as part of the annual FedEx Cares Purple Tote Campaign, which ran between October and December 2023 to empower FedEx team members to come together and support the NGOs they value most in their local communities. FedEx volunteers from 18 markets in the region, 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 took part in the program.

This year, team members came together in teams of all sizes across the region. Each team worked with their charities of choice, collected the goods they needed most, and distributed them to the charities in FedEx Cares purple tote bags. Over 2,400 beneficiaries, including young children, the elderly, and underserved groups, received goods with love from FedEx team members.

“Every action that improves our world, no matter how small, is 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,” said Kawal Preet, president of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region at FedEx Express. “Committing to Do Good is one of our most important values, and community action like this is one of the things that makes working at FedEx so incredibly rewarding.”

“At FedEx, we are committed to creating a positive impact in the communities we serve. Our collaboration with Club Rainbow allows our team members to support the less fortunate from local communities,” said Eric Tan, managing director of FedEx Express Singapore. “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 around the globe are encouraged to come together to ‘Drive forward – Give back’ by volunteering and doing countless acts of caring throughout the year. Earlier In April 2023, FedEx teams across AMEA came together under the ’50 Days of Caring’ to support FedEx’s 50th anniversary. This program mobilized more than 1,000 FedEx volunteers and their families in community-based activities focused on sustainability and environmental protection, education, welfare, and support for the underserved.
