Bears and Blankets is one of our We Care for Kids™ programs, a wonderful collection of team motivational activities for charity, which create immediate, tangible results while boosting employee morale through the building and donation of memorable items for children in need.
Bears and Blankets features Apple iPads® delivering a unique teambuilding experience involving text, audio, and video clues, exciting gaming challenges, and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this truly heartwarming event with photos and video of your teams in action.
During the event, as teams earn points they will be choosing their bears and carefully stuffing them to huggable perfection. Bear-size t-shirts are skillfully designed and decorated by the artistic members of your group. Once these furry friends are created, they are dressed in their custom shirt thus giving them an identity all their own.
In addition, each team will use their creativity to swaddle the bears with warm soft blankets. These blankets will help promote an added sense of security for the children receiving them.
All the items made will then be delivered to crisis centers and law enforcement agencies that will distribute them to children who have experienced trauma.
Whenever possible, a representative from the organization receiving your gifts will address your group and thank them for their generous donation.
The possibilities are endless but the outcome is always the same: a proud team of employees helping children to know someone cares.
To ensure a great experience, aspects of these team-building activities may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
