Support our fundraiser by donating to Willing Hearts!

++++

Over the past 60 years, Eastern Pacific Shipping has grown to be one of Singapore's leading tonnage providers. Our growth is attributed to our people, our partners, and the communities where we operate. To show our gratitude, we have launched the EPS Care Initiative as a way to give back.

This year we have identified seven charities (six Singaporean and one international) that we want to support, including Willing Hearts!

To provide these charities with the required funds to operate, we have organised a fundraiser that will see our sea and shore teams attempt to walk, run, or cycle 40,075 kilometres collectively! Why 40,075? This is roughly Earth's circumference, so together, we want to Walk, Run, or Cycle Around the World for Charity!

On December 11, 2020, EPS will donate S$6 for every kilometer walked, ran, or cycled by EPS employees until we reach 40,075km. This fundraiser has been approved by the Singapore Tote Board and qualifies for the dollar to dollar matching scheme under the SG Fortitude Budget for up to S$250,000 for the six Singapore-based charities. But we need your help! Companies and individuals looking to support our fundraiser are encouraged to use tis campaign to donate to Willing Hearts. Any amount is appreciated and will make a difference!
