Rocking Horses for Ronald McDonald House

Last week TeamBuilding Unlimited led a leadership group from one of the premiere retailers in children's furnishings and accessories in a terrific Charity Challenge: Rocking Horses for Tots. The company doesn't offer rocking horses, but after this team building event, I wouldn't be surprised to see them turn up in a future catalog and stores.

The group did an absolutely amazing job of assembling and painting/decorating the wooden rocking horses. Each team spent time brainstorming their designs before implementing them. Each Rocking horse was beautiful and creative!

The Rocking Horses were donated to the San Francisco Ronald McDonald House. This charitable event had a huge impact on the company that assembled and painted them, as well as the children who received them.  It was a Win-Win experience!

Here's what Shannon, Development Coordinator,  Ronald McDonald House said:

The horses were gone within ONE day. We were planning to keep two of them at the House but the kids were having so much fun. They had the biggest smiles when Ron said they could have them as their own. What a wonderful gift. The horses are a perfect project for the House since we always have children in that age range. I’m happy I was able to be a part of it.

Charity Challenge: Rocking Horses is a great way to bring your team together while fulfilling CSR: Corporate Social Responsibility. Contact TeamBuilding Unlimited for more information.
