There are many unique ways to hold a charity team building event this holiday season that’s one-of-a-kind and not the same old ho-hum holiday party.
Having your team regroup and spending some time unwinding and connecting on a regular basis is important, as this directly impacts how productive your team is throughout the year. With deliberate team building events, you can help your people work together and collaborate with each other in order to overcome obstacles, just as they would do so in an office setting. But the key here is to choose an activity that doesn’t feel like “work”, and in doing so you take their mind off the usual stress that their work brings. One example of a unique activity is building wagons for underprivileged children as a team.
Building Wagons and Building Hope
When people are confronted with something that they don’t do on a daily basis, such as building toy wagons for children, they are forced to think creatively and tap on their communication skills as a team. With limited resources, they need to strategize about how to accomplish the goal at hand. All of these are achieved by asking them to do something fun and creative, so it doesn’t even feel like work. This is why this is such great holiday team building idea, no matter how many people you have in the team and no matter what the group composition is. If you want to improve team motivation and productivity, then you might want to explore wagon building.
Apart from the actual building of the wagons however, there’s an added layer of building hope for those who will receive these wagons. The wagons will be given to children who need a little comfort and hope, and if your team knows that this is what they’re building for, their actions become so much more meaningful. They will want to complete the wagons because they know that when they do, they’re helping children in the community.
Support Your Preferred Charity
You don’t have to worry about the details either, because this charity team building event is perfectly customizable. While we see a lot of local charity work with the Boys & Girls Club, you can choose your preferred charity if you have one. There are many opportunities to help within the local community, and you can choose one and build hope for an organization that you see a strategic partnership with. Whether that’s a children’s hospital, a food bank, emergency and rescue teams, or other nonprofit and civic organizations that target children, you can take your pick and dictate where the wagons go.
