Ways to Celebrate Senior Citizen Day

Share

Today is Senior Citizen Day where we are reminded of the hardworking generations that came before us. Best is dedicated to offering over 17 CSR charitable team building programs; two of which help senior citizens!

Our CSR team building programs feature group activities designed to boost team spirit while giving back to the community. These uplifting events include activities, games, and challenges. The events result in the creation of items for donation to local and national charities. These charities are for the benefit of overseas soldiers, schools, the homeless, children, the elderly, and Alzheimer’s patients – to name a few.

Seniors by the numbers

Most people define “senior citizen” as a person over the age of 65. In 1950 there were 200 million people over 60 years old. By 2000 that number had tripled to nearly 600 million. By 2025 it is estimated that there will be over 1 billion older persons.

Seniors have a wealth of knowledge gained through their hard work and years of experience. They are a valuable asset to our community. It is our pleasure in offering programs that give back and help so many seniors in need.

A couple of featured programs

Our first featured program is Project Alzheimers™. Designed to help people living with Alzheimer’s, this program reawakens their souls through listening to their favorite music. Your group will compete in a fun competition which enables them to earn points.  The points help them to earn MP3 players and other items to be donated to the elderly. Local organizations receive the donations and are trained on how to set up the on MP3 players for those in their care. As the team’s gain points, other items earned include headphones, knot blanket kits, stuffed animal kits, markers, and all the tools necessary to complete the care packages.

Donating items that can change people’s quality of life will touch your group’s hearts and elevate morale. Our give back programs create lasting memories that are captured on Apple iPads we provide.  Following the event, we share a link that includes all the photos and videos captured on the iPads!

Build-a-Wheelchair®

Another popular program that helps seniors is our Build-a-Wheelchair®. Build-a-Wheelchair® is a corporate social responsibility program born out of a desire to help American veterans and others with various mobility challenges. In this fun and worthwhile program, groups use teamwork skills and iPads® activities to earn the materials necessary to assemble, test and decorate these new wheelchairs for donation.

The most special part of our CSR programs is at the end when someone from the charity comes to the event in person to accept the donations. It is an excellent opportunity hearing about each of the organizations and learning more about the recipients that we help.

So next time your company is looking for ways to participate in #SeniorCitizensDay, choose a team building program that boosts team spirits while helping others. Show your support and appreciation to seniors in the community and participate in a CSR charitable event.

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
