May 28, 2014 /3BLMedia/ - As one of South Florida's largest employers, Carnival Cruise Lines believes that being a responsible member of a community means giving something back, and the company and its employees support a variety of charitable and arts-related organizations.

Carnival's charitable activities are coordinated through the Carnival Foundation, which oversees the company's myriad philanthropic efforts as well as its employee-driven service arm, the "Friends Uniting Neighbors (F.U.N.) Team." 

Although Carnival's contributions are wide-ranging, the company primarily focuses on organizations based in South Florida, where the company is headquartered, and in its homeport communities throughout the U.S. 

During times of crisis, Carnival works closely with national and international relief organizations, coordinating corporate and employee donations for emergencies such as hurricanes in the U.S. and Caribbean, and the Haiti earthquake.

Shipboard personnel also do their part by participating in beach clean ups and donating their time  and talent to orphanages and children's charities throughout the Caribbean and other regions. In the past five years alone, Carnival Cruise Lines and its employees have contributed more than $30 million in financial contributions and in-kind donations to a variety of local and national charities.
