FedEx Supports April Children’s Day to Promote Child Pedestrian Safety in Taiwan
TAIPEI, Apr 15, 2013—In an effort to raise public awareness towards child pedestrian safety, FedEx Express (FedEx), one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, supported April Children’s Day, co-organized by the Jing Chuan Child Safety Foundation and the Department of Social Welfare of the New Taipei City Government, on April 13, 2013. 30 FedEx employees volunteered at the April Children’s Day public fair which featured game booths and exhibitions to reinforce road safety knowledge and smart pedestrian behavior.
“Every day, more than 90,000 FedEx vehicles are on the road sharing the streets with pedestrians worldwide. It stands to say that we are on the road a lot, and that is the reason why road safety is and always has been a core value of FedEx operations”, said Michael Chu, managing director of FedEx Taiwan. “We are proud to be able to support the Jing Chuan Child Safety Foundation to promote safety and to ensure that these children have all the resources needed to make pedestrian safety a routine and fundamental part of their lives.”
This April marks the FedEx 40th anniversary. To build on its 40 years of culture of giving, FedEx is celebrating April as a Global Month of Service where FedEx employees all over the world will volunteer in their local communities. The April Children’s Day public fair in Taiwan is part of this global initiative.
