Spreading Love and Hope with Enthusiasm
The power of one person is very limited, but if we can combine the power of everyone, it will create infinite possibilities. Therefore, we have initiated "KPMG Corporate Volunteer Day" since 2008. Every year on the third Friday of November, more than 2,000 KPMG Taiwan employees set aside their work to volunteer for a day, engaging in activities at social welfare organizations throughout the country and participating in beach cleanups. Over the past 15 years, we have accumulated more than 140,000 community service hours, benefiting over 22,000 individuals in need. We gain precious experience from the Corporate Volunteer Day and grasp the true meaning of "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
