This Holiday Season, Give Back with Every Gift You Send

November 6, 2013

Every year when the holiday season rolls around, I can’t help but think of all the things in my life that make me thankful. Personally, my family, health and education always top that list.

But to me, the season isn’t just about feeling grateful. It’s also a time to show our thanks by paying it forward. Whether it’s a kindness done for a friend, a helping hand for a stranger in need or simply a few coins dropped in the bell ringer’s red bucket outside the department store – it all reflects gratitude and a desire to give back.

With education among those things I value most, I am fortunate enough to work for a company that supports educational programs and collaborates with organizations like Teach For America

This month, we launched “FedEx One Rate, Countless Possibilities Through Education,” a nationwide effort to allow our customers to effortlessly give back during the holiday season, and continue the FedEx commitment to education.

Now through December 23, FedEx will automatically donate $1 to Teach For America for every One Rate transaction and every use of #CountlessPossibilities, up to $200,000. You can help us reach our holiday giving goal by shipping via FedEx One Rate from a FedEx Office location or online.

Each day, Teach For America teachers reach 750,000 students in underserved communities. Through this program supported by FedEx One Rate, we will help to bring creativity and innovation to our education system, helping that energy live on through a new generation of students. We’re thankful to be able to provide teachers and students with this boost as they head into the new year. 

For more information and to participate, customers can visit a FedEx Office or visit www.fedex.com to ship. Visit the Countless Possibilities website for more information on how to give simply by sharing a message in social media.
