CMI believes that the true value of a corporation can be measured by how much it gives back to society. This belief drives CMI's corporate responsibility related programs. CMI's charity projects focused on disaster relief, and aid to underprivileged people. In the future CMI will continue giving back to society and living up to its promise of corporate social responsibility.
In December 2010, CMI Employee Welfare Committee and InnoLove Club organized the CMI Care Month, with activities including the Warmth for Children Fair and Christmas Wish Card Adoption. Before the Warmth for Children Fair, employees bought tickets and donated them to the Yaoan Home for the children there to enjoy the fair. Employees also made biscuits for charity sale at the fair, with the income donated to local center for Taiwan Fund for Children and Families and the underprivileged groups. The Christmas Wish Card Adoption is a regular social concern activity. The Employee Welfare Committee posted wish cards for employees to donate the presents on the cards. In 2010, a total of 600 Christmas presents were recruited for elementary school in remote areas to share the joy of Christmas with children there.
Typhoon Marokot devastated southern Taiwan on 8 August 2009. Taoyuan Elementary School, Singzhong Elementary School, Jianshan Elementary School, Zhangshan Elementary School and Taoyuan Junior High School in Taoyuan Township, Kaohsiung County, were ruined, and more than 400 students were prevented from going to school. CMI thus participated in the affected area restoration plan by promoting the Hope Campus Project in collaboration with Tree Valley Foundation and Outward Bound Taiwan in September 2009 and October 2010; aiming to help these schools and students to recover life and learning. At the initial stage, to accommodate teachers and students, and to accompany them get over the trauma were the basic goals. In the medium term, to promote family ties by organizing parent-and-child camps was the goal. In the long term, we hope to help children re-discover their native culture and understand the importance of respecting nature for sustainable co-existence from school.
