To expand the scope of KPMG Volunteer Team’s services, KPMG partnered with Eden Social Welfare Foundation in 2011 to serve drug addicts and orphans in Chiang Rai, Thailand, marking the firm’s first ever international volunteer campaign. Team members helped create a better living environment for the locals and fostered language and cultural exchanges.

To allocate more resources, KPMG in Taiwan partnered with Taipei 101 to put together the Love Market, began in 2013 for four consecutive years, extending invitations to fellow Taipei 101 tenants, enterprises nearby, and local residents to show support for this good cause. The heavy dose of media exposure led to impressive sales numbers, generating millions of dollars for various social welfare organizations.
