Corporate Social Responsibility
Tipex’s signature Beautex Life’s Beautiful art competition was held at Sentosa on 14 June 2014. Launched six years ago, the annual event, which encourages school children to express themselves through art, continued to attract strong participation from children and their families. Winning artworks were printed on limited edition Beautex tissue boxes, with Tipex donating 20 cents to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund for every five-box pack sold. At the end of this meaningful campaign, Tipex’s total donation amounted to S$22,569.40.
Collaboration With The Rainbow Centre
In November 2014, Tipex collaborated with the Rainbow Centre – a charity organisation that helps children with special needs – to launch limited edition Beautex tissue boxes that featured colourful artworks drawn by the children. Tipex donated 20 cents to the centre for every five-box packs sold. The six-month campaign will be ended in April 2015. All proceeds will be used to fund education and training to stretch the children’s developmental potential.
