‘Tis the season for charitable team building!

Employees want to work for organizations that give back to the community. In fact, 61% of workers say that a company’s commitment to the community would likely be a factor when choosing between two potential jobs with the same location, responsibilities, pay, and benefits. In addition to improving morale and ethical behaviors in the workplace, corporate giving also boosts employee engagement, productivity, trust, and collaborationStudies show that companies with highly engaged employees are 21% more profitable.  

 

Giving back to your community 

It’s easy to incorporate social responsibility into your team’s culture. Charitable team building activities offer participants exciting ways to come together for friendly competition and fun activities while making a difference. There’s something for everyone from building wheelchairs to teddy bears. TeamBonding offers activities for groups of all shapes and sizes, whether your team is interested in benefiting animals, veterans, children or the community or something else.  

Below are some popular activities from TeamBonding’s extensive roster. 

Toys for Tykes 

The excitement begins with an icebreaker and progresses onto other activities, including Toy Trivia, a Blindfolded Puzzle Challenge, and a fun, fast-paced, secret final challenge. In Toys for Tykes, teams earn the points needed to earn the materials that fill their girl-themed and boy-themed wagon of treasures. 

As groups work together, they are also given a songbook that contains the lyrics to common knowledge tunes. They are tasked with picking one of the songs and rewriting the lyrics to fit their company or your meeting theme. 

Participants wrap the gift-filled wagons in cellophane and bows. They make note cards for each present, providing a personal message from the teams. Then, each team will perform their choreographed musical masterpiece to a wildly cheering audience. 

 

Paws For A Cause 

If you’re looking to mix in some fun while giving back to your local animal shelter, Paws For A Cause is the team building event for your team. As groups work together to help local rescue animals by making dogs beds, toys, and cat-scratch pads, trivia and word challenges will be put in the mix. Combine team building, and com-PET-ition to make a difference in an animal’s life. 

 

Impact Online 

In this virtual activity, teams will break up into groups and compete against each other through puzzles, trivia, and other fun challenges to climb the leaderboard. Impact Online promotes teamwork and trust as teams work to take action toward a sustainable future. Through each challenge, teams will learn what they can do to support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Expect goosebumps… at the end, team points are converted into donations to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Make a meaningful impact and strive toward a sustainable future.  

 

Hopefull Handbags 

You know that feeling when you get a new handbag — eager to go out around the town and show off your fabulous new accessory? Everyone deserves to feel that confident energy. Hopefull Handbags is a charitable event that can do just that for women in need. Support women in shelters by filling handbags with items that will help them get back on their feet. Work together as a team to problem-solve, collaborate, and have fun. Give your team the joy of giving back and make a difference in the lives of people who need it most.

Our Charity Bike Build invites your team to collaborate with one another to build bikes for children who otherwise may not be able to experience the joy of riding their first bicycle.

The meaningful purpose of this program inspires teams to work with more passion than ever before.

A little kindness can go a long way. While solving puzzles, decoding, and unlocking secrets, while you gather the supplies to make a custom teddy bear for children. Teams will split up into groups and race against each other to earn enough points to purchase accessories to build your bear.
