FedEx team members have been demonstrating they care for their communities in a big way around the globe in the 50 days leading up to our 50th birthday.

There have been more than 200 volunteer projects and other acts of caring so far during this exciting time in our company’s history.

Thank you to everyone who has shown that FedEx cares for our communities!

Here are a few examples of team members committing to do good around the globe:


Launched a sustainability focused campaign for 50 Days of Caring with projects including:

  • Beach clean-ups in Australia, Mainland China, and South Africa, to reduce waste and build cleaner coastal communities.
  • A park clean-up in Japan, and trash collection drives in India, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa to help deliver a cleaner, trash-free environment.
  • Planting trees in Mainland China, Singapore, India, Vietnam, and addition of plants and shrubs around office facilities in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

Additionally, volunteers in Egypt packed 3,600 food boxes for the underprivileged during Ramadan at the Egyptian Food Bank, while team members in India distributed 290 Saksham kits to women entrepreneurs with the United Way Mumbai, and in China volunteers continue their work with AnQ Awakening Cloud Class on safety and sustainability knowledge teaching for kids.


Team members in France and England assembled 1,050 food boxes with Rise Against Hunger for families and refugees impacted by the Ukraine crisis. FedEx Europe also partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to bring some green to their local communities by planting trees in The Netherlands and Greece.

Nearly 150 team members from across Europe joined in three virtual volunteering events with participants creating:

  • Educational quizzes for school children for the non-profit, SchoolMe, a UK based charity that supports the advancement of education in Tunisia
