TeamBuilding Unlimited offers several different charity challenges. One of our favorite is Blankets of Hope. In this Philanthropic Team Building activity, teams work together to create warm and cozy Blankets of Hope.
Teams are given multi-patterned and solid fleece panels that they combine to make no-sew Blankets of Hope. Teams work together to cut and knot these blankets. There are many different ways to assemble and finish these great fleece blankets, so there is ample room for creativity, as well as practicality. Team members choose from a variety of patterns and styles of fleece, as well as finishing techniques. Working in teams of 2-3, these no-sew blankets are fun to make.
Once the blankets are completed, they will be donated to local organizations: Shelters, Police, Fire, Disaster, Hospitals or another charity. This Charity Challenge is fun and altruistic. It benefits your team and the children who receive the Blankets of Hope. It's a Win-Win event for your group.
Recently TeamBuilding Unlimited worked with a Silicon Valley group that assembled and donated 65+ blankets to the Family Giving Tree. The Family Giving Tree in turn donated them to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital for the pediatric and oncology patients. It was a win-win event for all involved. TeamBuilding Unlimited was proud to play a part.
