That day, that smile, that feeling, so many things I don’t even know how to describe it!
We all remember the moment when we received our first bike. There is something so exciting and magical about it!
The reality though, is that even in our developed country, there are many kids who don’t get that experience. This is where TeamBonding comes in, giving smiles one team-building event at a time!
In October I was able to experience my first TeamBonding charity event as an assistant. It was a bike build with donations going to the Boys & Girls Club. I had such a great time helping out and got the bonus of seeing the smiling faces of the boys and girls who were there to receive them.
I had a chance to chat with the gentlemen from the charity who were also first-timers to such a team-building event. We all shared in the anticipation and excitement of seeing the children receive their bikes. As I said earlier, it was magical! The kids rushed into the room and everyone started clapping.
Many of the kids in the group come from families where bikes are either shared between siblings or they just don’t have one at all. Many of the kids are living with only one parent or are cared for by others. They don’t have many of the things that we sometimes take for granted, so a moment like this can really serve to remind them that people all around them want to be supportive as they grow. Boys & Girls club is a great charitable organization and really serves as part of the “village” that helps children reach their fullest potential.
If you have kids and you’ve ever read, “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” by Carol McCloud, you know this was a day where so many buckets were filled! When we fill a bucket, we fill our own. I am happy to have been a part of this experience, and hope to have many more in the future!
After the team building event, the bikes were loaded up and taken back to the facility. Since most of the families rely on public transportation, the Boys & Girls Club staff made sure the bikes got home to the kids as soon as possible. The kids were so excited and hardly wanted to part with the bikes for delivery, but they did a great job helping get them ready to be transported.
If you are planning to do a team building event and want the added bonus of some warm fuzzies and charitable work, these events could be right for you.
