Charity Challenge #1: Bikes for Kids

Building bikes for Kids is a great CRO event! Each team receives the same Bicycle parts, and our trained facilitators supervise the event.  Participants will be challenged by several "children's competitive games" in order to receive the bicycle parts. The reward for building the Bicycles is the reward of giving back to the community. Bikes will be donated to the charity of your choice. Companies can choose their own charity or TeamBuilding Unlimited/Murder on the Menu can help you locate one in your area.

Variation: Trikes for Tots.

Charity Challenge #2: Bears that Care

TeamBuilding Unlimited leads you in a Bears That Care Teddy Bear team-building event! This is a great way to bring your team together while providing comfort to needy children.

Each team will compete in a series of children's games and challenges to earn team points toward the "purchase" of parts and accessories needed to assemble Bears That Care. The competition continues as each person builds Teddy Bears (and other animals) and designs special Bear T-shirts that represent their team and their company.

Once the bears are completed, they are presented to local organizations: Shelters, Police, Fire, Disaster, Hospitals and more.

This Charity Challenge is fun and altruistic. It benefits your team and the children who receive the Bears that Care. It's a Win-Win team building event for your Team. Great for your Community Service day.

Charity Challenge #10: Operation Red Wagon II:
Welcome Wagons

This is a twist on our traditional Red Wagon team building event. Wagons will be filled with various supplies depending on the receiving organization: Children or Families. We even have an optional Library Wagon that participants fill with Books!

Included in this event is everything in Operation Red Wagon I, with the addition that teams will also use their points from the competitive children's games to "shop" for specific items to include in the wagons. In this format, the high-energy activity quickly shifts from competitive to collaborative while trying to fill all wagons to capacity. Wagons can be filled with household supplies or children's toys, school supplies or a mixture.

Working together each team becomes part of an even bigger team that makes a difference by providing basic supplies for families in need.

Besides teambuilding skills, a lot of team bonding goes on during this meaningful and fun charity challenge!

Charity Challenge #11: Building Blocks to the Future

building blocks teambuildingWooden Blocks are the "Building Blocks" for fun and skills for children. Not only do blocks offer countless hours of entertainment, but they also help children develop many skills which are of use at home school and throughout life. Unlike other Toys, Building Blocks offer an open ended learning and playing experience. Kids can arrange them in different combinations and display their creative skills. Depending on how your participants paint and decorate the blocks, children can learn the alphabet, numbers, colors and dexterity.

Teambuilding Unlimited facilitators will lead you through this fun painting activity, as your participants paint wooden blocks in various patterns, colors and sets. Participants are divided into teams in this creative endeavor! Blocks are donated to hospitals, shelters, pre-schools and other charitable organization. The painted Blocks to the Future will provide hours of entertainment and education for kids.

 

Charity Challenge #12: Community Mural/Quilt Art Project

Participants work in teams to "design" a piece of a Mural/Quilt that will be donated to the charity of their choice. Each team gets 1-2 squares to design about or for the organization to whom the quilt (mural) will be donated, the holiday or the company itself. The theme may even be part of the challenge, as the teams decide on the theme of the quilt/banner. TeamBuilding Unlimited works with your teams to ensure the theme is appropriate for the charity—but the best part is the creativity of your participants. TeamBuilding Unlimited will guide your creativity, provide the materials, and facilitate the event. The "quilt" is then put together—by your teams—and donated. Favorite themes: The World, the Holiday, Children, Children's Games, Seniors, How Your Company is making a Difference—the Sky's the Limit! So tap into your creativity for a good cause.

Project Green Thumb

garden green teambuildingTeamBuilding Unlimited will lead participants through a hands-on Green Gardening TeamBuilding event in which they work together to add trees, shrubs and flowers to public spaces, school, and parks. Project Green Thumb will match your participants with organizations that are in charge of these locations, and TBU will provide participants with all the tools, plants, and soil they will need to "Green the Community."

Charity Challenge #14: Cupcake Decorating & Donating

cupcake teambuildingTeamBuilding Unlimited is known for its sweet team events, but our Cupcake Challenge can be a great interactive and delicious activity that capitalizes on your team's creativity and sweet tooth. This is a great event to do before or after a meal and can be incorporated into your lunch, dinner or afternoon teambuilding treat. These cupcakes can be eaten by your group or donated to a local charity—or both!

Each team will be given paper to start, so they can create a Team Chef's Hat! Individuals decorate their chef's hat with their team name and anything else they feel is appropriate... or not.

Then the real fun begins. Teams are challenged to Decorate their Cupcakes so that they symbolize the team itself, the company, the theme of the meeting, their positions at the company, or another theme. 

In addition each team will be given materials to create a DISPLAY in which they'll be able to stack their treats into showpieces. Prizes will be given to best overall display!

Each team will be given Cupcakes that can be decorated or left as is. With a variety of cupcake design supplies, instructions on technique, tools and assorted decorating materials, your team will turn their concept into reality. Basics on cupcake decoration start the teams off, but very soon, your group's creativity takes over. After the cupcakes are designed, decorated and displayed, each team will create a "commercial" to present their cupcakes to the entire group.

And last but not least, participants can enjoy or donate their creations—or both. 

You can have your Cupcake and Eat it, too!
