Building a better future for children
CAMBODIA, MULTIPLE VISITS EACH YEAH
After personally getting to know the work of the Cambodian Children's Fund, one of our senior leaders, Eric Leddel, galvanized other senior leaders and colleagues in the company to go on a 3-day volunteering trip to share skills and find ways build sustainable impact with CCF. Since then, Eric's passion has inspired others to get involved with CCF, with colleagues collaborating with CCF to develop a leadership curriculum and organizing workshops on design thinking, public speaking and leadership, and even prompting vendors to donate much-needed in-kind goods such as children’s clothing and studying materials to the organization.
Cleaning up our world
GLOBAL, ALL YEAR ROUND
This year, we introduced the RETHINK Challenge, a campaign which included not only our colleagues but also the public, challenging everyone to stop using single use and disposable containers for 1 week. Through this challenge people from over 24 countries and territories pledged to ditch single use and disposable plastics and opt for more sustainable alternatives. This ended up being an educational experience and RETHINKERS developed sustainable habits that would continue long after the challenge.
One participant from the UK commented "I have become more aware of how much waste I create and how much I can avoid!"
Recycling soap, saving lives
GREATER CHINA, ALL YEAR ROUND
In our biggest team volunteering activity to date, more than 150 colleagues spent an afternoon with Soap Cycling (a Hong Kong non-profit dedicated to recycling previously used soap from hotels and redistributing it to those who need it most), to clean a whopping 350kg of soap, enough to supply 800 kids in the Philippines for a whole year. Our relationship with Soap Cycling has continued, and 500+ colleagues across Hong Kong and Mainland China have volunteered over 1,200 hours since 2016.
