Have you heard the buzz? Or, shall we say… bark?
TeamBonding has added a brand new philanthropic team building event to our roster – Paws for a Cause!
The statistics on homeless animals are sobering, but this program will have your team laughing and having a good time as they compete in building much needed items like dog beds, cat scratch pads and toys for local animal shelters and rescue organizations. With several severe weather incidences in recent history, such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and the many tornadoes that have hit the Midwest in recent years, many animals have been displaced from their homes. Animal shelters are almost always at capacity as a result of this unfortunate weather trend.
Paws for a Cause is one way for your group to help our furry friends be as comfortable as possible while they await permanent homes. Whether you are a group of animal lovers, or seasoned event professionals looking for something new in the world of team building, this is an innovative philanthropic program that you won’t want to miss!
In fact, we’ve already teamed up with a great organization in the Boston area to help them in their animal rescue efforts – Black Cat Rescue. In a recent Wordless Wednesday post we told you that black cats are half as likely to be adopted as other cats. Well, Black Cat Rescue is working to make that a thing of the past, and TeamBonding is looking forward to being able to help them as well as other organizations in their work.
Are you a Boston area business interested in a philanthropic team building event? If so, please consider Paws for a Cause so we can get these deserving felines some creature comforts!
Not from Boston? That’s still purrrfect. We’ll set you up to donate to a local area shelter or national relief effort.

The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively in order to work effectively. (more…)
Team building brings people together by encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting. People on your team are asked to think about the implications of these activities at their workplace.
