  • Over 100 volunteer projects around the world in 24 hours to Fight
    Child Hunger
  • Starting in Sydney and ending in Maui − Morgan Stanley employees join
    together to kick off 14th annual Global Volunteer Month

Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) today announced the third year of "Feeding
Kids Around the Clock," 24 hours of employee volunteer activities
worldwide dedicated to raising awareness of child hunger. Building on
the impact of last year's initiative, which provided nearly 1.9 million
meals in one day, today, starting in Sydney and ending in Maui, Morgan
Stanley employees around the world join forces to fight child hunger and
witness the difference one single day of service can have on an
organization, a community and a child's life.

Over 100 projects are taking place as part of Feeding Kids Around the
Clock, leveraging Morgan Stanley's global footprint to raise awareness
on child hunger and give children the opportunity for a healthy start to
life. But this is just the beginning. Feeding Kids Around the Clock is
kicking off the 14th annual Global Volunteer Month, an annual
Morgan Stanley campaign every June which began in 2006 and urges
employees worldwide to donate their time and effort to volunteer and
better the communities where we live and work. Since its inception, the
campaign has recorded over 2.1 million hours of employee volunteering.

This year also marks Morgan Stanley's 10-year anniversary partnering
with Feeding America. Since 2009, Morgan Stanley has committed more than
$23 million, benefiting 117 United States food banks providing over 211
million meals around the country. Thanks to this essential partnership
and our partners globally, today, Feeding Kids Around the Clock projects
will take place in 83 cities around the world. Employees and the public
will be able to follow along as meals are tracked and events take place
around the world on our website
and on social media @MorganStanley.

"For more than 50 years, Morgan Stanley has been committed to helping
children get a healthy start in life, and having access to nutritious
food is essential to this mission," said Joan Steinberg, Global Head of
Philanthropy at Morgan Stanley. "With an engaged employee base and a
culture of giving back, Morgan Stanley is committed to leveraging our
global reach and using all resources at our disposal to help give
children the healthy start they need for lifelong achievement."

Partnering with Feeding America and Food Bank For New York City, Morgan
Stanley is holding an employee volunteer event in Times Square today,
from 8:00 a.m. ET to 5:00 p.m. ET to pack meals and raise awareness on
child hunger in the U.S. Morgan Stanley is tracking meals delivered
throughout the day, posting updates on its digital exterior signage in
Times Square and on social media using #MSGivesBack. Millions of meals
will be provided to children and families in need during this 24-hour
period, but with 150 million kids under the age of five living in
hunger, this battle can't be won alone. Join Morgan Stanley in raising
awareness on child hunger by posting on social media with the
#MSGivesBack hashtag.
