DUBLIN, Ireland, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XL Group plc ("XL" or the "Company") (NYSE: XL) today announced that it plans to hold its eighth Global Day of Giving on Thursday, May 23, 2013.  The company-wide employee volunteer day is dedicated to supporting the communities in which XL operates.

Since inception in 2006, when XL celebrated its 20 th anniversary, the Global Day of Giving has grown with XL employees donating more than 130,000 hours of community service to hundreds of charitable projects in various locations worldwide.

XL's Chief Executive Officer, Mike McGavick, said: "Communities around the world continue to face tough times. Through our Global Day of Giving, we are able to directly impact the communities in which we work, strengthen our relationships with partners, including charities and other non-profit organizations, and work towards developing longer-term solutions to some of the issues facing these communities. With XL's goal to 'make your world go', we're pleased to take this time to play a small role outside of the office in giving back to our communities."

During this year's Global Day of Giving more than 165 projects have been scheduled in more than 50 locations around the world to address issues such as:

Education/Youth Development: Engaging with young people, mainly from disadvantaged areas, ranging from kindergarteners and primary school students in the U.S., Bermuda and India to college students in the UK, to help them with a variety of educational development activities including homework, science projects, interview skills, resume writing, and career planning.  

Environment: Taking care of forests, beaches, parks and other natural habitats through a myriad of activities around the world including: Forest clearing and cleaning in Germany and the Netherlands, respectively; gardening and landscaping in Brazil and throughout the U.S. and Europe; clearing rubble and invasive plant species in Bermuda; weeding, planting vegetables and harvesting in Shanghai, China; and cleaning beaches from Hong Kong to New York.  

Homelessness/Hunger: Working with Habitat for Humanity in Schaumburg, Illinois on the demolition and framing of a home; refurbishing and painting a homeless foundation building in Spain; preparing meals for those in need in Baltimore, Bermuda, Brazil and Singapore; sorting and packing donations at food banks throughout the U.S. and Canada; and organizing clothing donations in Beijing, China, Paris, France and the U.S.

Senior Care: Constructing covered garden pavilions to provide protection from the elements to residents of a nursing home in Austria; spending time socializing with seniors in places such as Germany, India, Ireland, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S.
