Operation Military Care is one of our most heartwarming corporate event programs. Why? Not only do participants form strong teams by collaborating on challenges that culminate in the creation of care packages for servicemen and women who typically would not otherwise receive them, but also they are surprised by a military representative who speaks about the importance of the day’s actions. We often hear that there wasn’t “a dry eye in the house” because everyone was so moved, which is important because of the impact it has on the groups to know that they can truly make a difference as a team. This program is a powerful reminder that philanthropy is worthwhile.
“We all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future.” –John F. Kennedy
The web page for every program we offer here at Best Corporate Events includes a section called “Eco Elements” which details the ways in which it’s green. For example, all materials used might be reused, recycled, or donated. Or we may be able to theme the entire program around an eco theme. The biggest way in which we’ve upgraded our offerings, though, is by including iPads! Since the trivia questions, assembly instructions, and other information are now all on the iPads instead of printed; popular programs like Bike Build Donation and SmartHunts are entirely paperless.
When you’re looking for a team building program that fits your company’s needs, don’t neglect to consider whether your selection includes consideration for the planet. Ours do, and we’re proud to explain how on every program page!
You’ve never seen a charitable corporate event quite like this! Check out the video of teams creating innovative golf course holes (out of goods that will then be donated to a worthy cause) and then playing their way through them all. It’s a spectacular way for your group to flex their creativity, show off their mini-golfing skills, present their ideas, and feel great about their social responsibility. Plus, we include iPads, which means teams can capture video and photos throughout, answer challenges, and get real-time scoring. It’s the only game of golf where everyone wins!

Clients often ask which programs are our best sellers, so we’ve launched a new page on the Best Corporate Events website: Top Ten Events! It features our most popular events – with links to their individual pages containing full descriptions, videos, and requirements – and will be updated every six months with the latest data. Looking for team building programs that have been honed to perfection and truly work? You’ve found them!
“A miracle comes true. I was just telling our board of directors at our last meeting that we were running out of manual wheelchairs to donate to folks in need.” –Paul Martin, Army veteran and founder of Nevadans for Equal Access
Last month, we here at Best Corporate Events facilitated one of our most popular charitable CSR programs, Build-a-Wheelchair®, for 400 participants in Las Vegas. This program – exclusive to our company as we own the registered trademark on the name – not only gives a new twist on the old “bike build” structure, but also zooms into the future with high-tech elements. As with many of our programs, we offer Apple iPads, loaded with our special App technology, as a part of the event. This so impressed Nevada television station KTNV that they did a news story on the program and the subsequent donation of 90 wheelchairs to a worthy local charity. It’s always heartwarming to see the incredible good that comes from philanthropic programs like this one, and we couldn’t be more delighted to have the press share it!
One of the beautiful things about every Best Corporate Events and TeamBuilding program is its customizability: from length to goals to debrief topics, we make sure it will precisely fit the needs of our client. For the We Care for Kids™ program, further customization is possible in that there are many different possible items that can be built and assembled depending on the group’s needs. From putting together stuffed animals to be donated to fire stations and crisis centers to comfort children undergoing trauma to assembling reading benches, school cubbies, or small rocking chairs for underequipped hospitals or schools, there are myriad ways to make this charitable program fit just right. Check out this video, where participants make hundreds of these various gifts for those in need!
Our Operation Military Care program combines the best of corporate social responsibility with the finest team building activities, culminating in a heartwarming thank you speech from a military officer who details what these care packages will mean to the enlisted men and women who will soon receive them. If the sight of the hundreds of boxes in this video, decorated to look like an American flag, somehow fails to warm your heart, consider too that each contains a hand-written note from a participant, thanking the recipient for his or her service, and that every team member goes home knowing that at some point soon, there will be just a bit more joy and comfort in the world thanks to their work and generosity. It’s a moving experience of teamwork and charitableness that motivates your group for a long time thereafter!
If you’ve never seen the Mural of the World® – or even any one of its individual four-by-eight-foot paintings – in person, this video gives a taste of just how impressive it is. With the signatures of thousands of participants filling the borders of each canvas, this collection is an incredible display of teamwork, philanthropy, and art. There’s simply nothing else like it.
Think your workplace has done every possible charitable CSR program? Consider our spectacular Art of Giving program, particularly perfect for teams who are not seeking a physically challenging event. As you can see in the video, our unique process is all but foolproof, allowing participants to have fun and be creative while still producing a beautiful final mural. And when the artwork is gifted to a worthy local hospice or public care facility, everyone wins.
“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” –Henry Ford
