Charity Team Building: Did You Ever Know That You’re a Hero?

It never fails: we all gasp and grieve at reports of holiday fires when hard working families lose everything but the clothes they’re wearing, and it seems much worse precisely because it happens during the holiday season. It’s a relief to know that emergency response teams stand ready to help such unfortunates, but wouldn’t it be great if you could do something to help, too?

Well, you can! You and your company can partner with firemen and emergency volunteers in your community to become a kind of “auxiliary” first-responder.

How? The Rescue Buddies™ Stuffed Animal Team Building Workshop, a charity team building event that will make a life-changing difference in the lives of a needy family and yours as well.
Charity Team Building: Did You Ever Know That You're a Hero?

 The Stuffing Dreams Are Made Of

Imagine how heartsick parents feel watching all their worldly possessions go up in flames. No Christmas tree and no presents for their children to open. Technically, it may not be the end of the world, but that heartbroken family probably feels that way.

Stuffing a Teddy bear into a bag may seem too little to offer after such a horrific family tragedy, but to a traumatized child, it can provide a wellspring of comfort and hope that will keep on giving long after the holidays are over. Know what that makes you? A hero! In the eyes of a grateful child, you’ll be as important as Santa Claus!

 Creating Memories and Building Relationships

Now multiply that child’s joy by the number of people on your corporate team, and you’ll have a treasure trove of holiday memories that will last a lifetime. Through the Rescue Buddies™ Stuffed Animal Team Building Workshop you’ll not only partner with local firefighters and other first responders, you’ll partner with your colleagues as well, getting to know each other on a whole new level.

Consider planning a charity team building activity that will help bring comfort to a deserving family this holiday season. It’ll be the best investment of your time, talents, and heart you’ll ever make. Happy holidays!

Holiday Team Building: The Teddy Bear Workshop

We’re receiving a lot of phone calls requesting “The Teddy Bear Workshop”, even though there are so many more options than just teddy bears!

You get to throw a philanthropic twist into your holiday party or holiday team building event, benefit the local community, AND provide a learning experience that your team will be talking about long after the holidays are over. Now we just need to get people calling it “Rescue Buddies” instead of “The Teddy Bear Workshop”!

Holiday Team Building Activities – When Giving is Building

We all have a mental image of what holiday team building activities entail, but some of the options might surprise you!

Team building is about taking a step back from the regular hustle of the workplace to bond with co-workers and revisit the core values of the company. An effective team building workshop is one where employees go back to work re-energized and with renewed commitment to work with each other towards achieving team goals. However, you can take your activity to the next level by integrating community service with holiday team building. Why? Because giving back to the community coupled with the holidays is a proven formula for creating something that is relevant and memorable.

Tis The Season To Be Jolly With A Holiday Team Building Event

Make your company’s yuletide celebration more memorable this year by hosting a holiday team building event instead of just having a company holiday party.

Of course the food and drinks will still abound, but unlike the usual year end party, your holiday team building event will be a fun learning activity that gives participants great memories and the joy of giving back, instead of just hangovers and indigestion.

Team building is a motivational experience for employees to gain knowledge of not only how to work together better but also of what the people they work with are all about. When employees leave the office (and all the stress associated with it) and engage in personal bonding through fun activities, it results in both learning new skills and developing other assets and connecting as a team.
