Giving back is not just a good thing for the community. It’s also a great thing to instill into your organization. Including a charity in team building is an excellent idea because it offers a unique opportunity to improve company bonding and morale while giving back to the community. When you include a charity in team building, you get to have fun and make a difference. Everyone benefits and let’s face it, you’re going to feel like a champ.
Make a Difference in Your Community
We all have a social responsibility. Team event planners looking for a fresh approach can tie-in team building activities with charitable causes. AdVenture Games Inc. offers a variety of adventures and activities for employees looking to make a difference in their community. They’re fully customized to benefit a social need or charity of your choice. You can choose to serve a single charitable cause or several different causes. Either way, including charity in team building, is excellent PR! After all, isn’t it much better to be recognized as a company that gives back to the community than one that does nothing at all?
When people come together with a common goal to benefit others, something special happens. Participants feel good about what they’re doing. Your employees will start to feel a sense of company pride, and even respect for where they work. Charity team building can also help create loyal employees. When you adopt charity team building into your organization, you open the door for your employees to embrace their softer side. It’s true. Even the most hardened co-worker will embrace doing the work for a higher purpose that goes beyond themselves. We’ve seen it happen many times. Everyone has a soft side. It feels good to do good!
How does it work? During the team adventures, teams earn parts. These parts go towards a toy wagon or a bicycle for a children’s hospital, or canned goods for a local food bank. Once teams have completed all the challenges, there are enough parts to donate to the organization of their choice. Some of the most popular organizations to give to are the Boys and Girls Club, Children’s Hospitals, and local food banks.
Provide Comfort to the Needy
There are many less fortunate people. Some are our neighbors. Your company can choose care packages to bring a smile to a child’s face or inspire youth to further their educational goals. These care packages can include school backpacks filled with notebooks, pencils, pens, erasers, folders, glue sticks, child scissors, and other school essentials. They can also include things such as toothpaste and toothbrushes, as well as dental floss, mouthwash, hand sanitizers, and baby wipes. When a child feels clean, they feel good about themselves. When children are sick, it can be heartbreaking. You can make a child’s day with a care package for children’s hospitals. The little things go a long way. Items such as baskets, crayons, small paint sets, bubbles, coloring books, and color pencils can help a sick child forget what he’s going through.
You can have a charity team building activity for community service days, celebrations, holiday parties, or meeting and conferences. If you’re looking for a great way to bring your employees closer together, consider charity team building.
