As the year comes to a close, it’s often a time to feel grateful for what we have – and to share with others who might be less fortunate. Those who take part in our Art of Giving charity event, painting a beautiful multi-panel mural that is then donated to a hospital, shelter, or other local care space, report a myriad of positive results: not only are they humbled to be able to brighten up a nearby facility, but they feel creative and collaborative in the process. Your company helps make a long-term difference, your team connects and succeeds, and the spirit of giving is seamlessly shared. It’s a win-win-win!
Though we are always proud when one of our clients chooses a charitable giving program and gives back to the community, it is particularly poignant when we hear back from recipients of those donations. After a recent Bike Build Donation program, during which teams collaborated on uniquely fast-paced, high-tech challenges only Best TeamBuilding® and our cache of iPads can offer, our charity contact told us about some of the kids who received the bikes. Talk about heartwarming!
Here’s Asia’s story, as we were told it: an only child, Asia lives alone with her mom, who is fighting cancer. Since most of the family’s money has gone to medical bills, they were not expecting to be able to give each other gifts this year. When the bike, helmet, and lock were delivered to Asia’s house, her mom started to cry from gratitude. Asia, of course, is thrilled and can’t wait to learn how to ride her very first bicycle.
We are delighted to offer so many charitable CSR programs and honored to be a part of the incredible stories that unfold when our corporate clients choose to give back.
