Groups are split into teams of 3-5 members that compete to see who can do the most good! We'll provide a series of challenges that will help you bond with your teammates while giving back to your community. We can customize the game to integrate seamlessly with your existing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, creating team building experiences founded in kindness and compassion.
A light-hearted competition that helps bring a smile to someone's face.
From 'paying it forward' to doing something generous for a teammate, teams will be tasked with a set of challenges encouraging them interact with each other and the public at large in ways they never normally would.
'Random' is the key phrase here – to complete each challenge, participants engage in novel ways with their teammates and strangers alike. From recording themselves telling their best joke to a man on the street, to leaving a fiver on a vending machine to treat the next customer, these challenges push team members out of their comfort zone to help spread goodwill in their communities.
Teams have between 60 minutes to three hours to complete a number of challenges and need to work together to earn the most points to win the game. But it's not all about winning: given the charitable nature of each challenges, everyone who competes will have achieved something great.
The experience can be tailored to the specific needs of your company - from completely branding the app to creating challenges that reflect your corporate values or team building themes, we'll work with your business to create a Random Acts of Kindness game that reflects the goals of your organization.
We'll develop the game with you, create instructions and provide self-hosting training and support. As an add-on, we can also host the session for you, featuring kick-off and wrap-up presentations. For more customized games, you'll work directly with our game producer to create a tailored product for your business. We'll work with you on the review process as well to ensure you're trained on how to use the app and completely satisfied with the final product. Other add-ons include in-game tech support, award ceremonies, live judging, highlight reels, in-game video, etc.
The games can be run across multiple locations as well – perfect for businesses that have offices in different cities and want to create a program that is scalable across the organization.
While the challenges can be completed in almost any location worldwide, we can also help create localized challenges for specific cities, taking advantage of landmarks, local hotspots and attractions to create a more bespoke experience.
Each team needs to work together to win challenges by showing kindness to each other or those in their community. So bring a smile to a man on the street by telling your best joke, or make your colleague's day by sending them a quick email to tell them what makes them so great.
It's hard to have a real impact when you're stuck inside a boardroom. We'll use landmarks, local hotspots and attractions in your city to create a fun team event that helps spread goodwill.
For team members who are a bit shy, these challenges will help encourage them to step outside their comfort zones in new and fun ways. From sharing a secret talent to approaching locals in their community, these Random Acts of Kindness will bring out the adventurous spirit in every member of your team.
Our Random Acts of Kindness games are generally a lower intensity, slower paced race that focus on creativity and giving back. When judging each challenge, we tend to look at the quality of the end result for each challenge, vs the number of challenges completed. However, if you want to up the ante, we can customize the game to be more competitive by adding more time pressure, bonus points and team challenges.
However, while the pace might be slower, the challenges are anything but easy. These games challenge your creative abilities and are ideal for those who are outgoing and fearless, unafraid to chat up strangers on the street and go out of their way to bring joy to those around them. The framework is also a great opportunity for those team members who are a little more reserved to push themselves out of their comfort zone to help take risks they wouldn't normally take.
This experience is less about 'winning' and more about finding creative and simple ways to give back to the community From buying a lottery ticket for a stranger, to mastering a new dance routine, there are countless ways to bring a smile to someone's face.
Want to make it even more bespoke? Create custom videos featuring team leaders that remind members about the theme of the day and thank them for taking part in the challenges. Let the C-suite vote on the best original Random Acts of Kindness challenge and offer customized prizes for the winners (like a Friday off work or a team dinner).
Whether its supporting a local charity or a conference theme, our experiences can integrate seamlessly with your existing corporate social responsibility initiatives to help reinforce your values and bring your messaging to life.
These Random Acts of Kindness experiences can be scaled up and rolled out to other departments, offices and locations for your business. Maximize the value of your investment by making this a company-wide initiative.
Witnessing acts of kindness produces oxytocin, occasionally referred to as the 'love hormone' which aids in lowering blood pressure and improving our overall heart-health. Oxytocin also increases our self-esteem and optimism, which is extra helpful when we're anxious or shy in a social situation. Source: The New York Times
Our Random Acts of Kindness challenges aren't just thrown together: they're backed by the latest team building research conducted by MIT. These teambuilding activities offer goal- and outcome-oriented games that are proven to help strengthen teams and create lasting bonds. These experiences help break down barriers (forget eating lunch alone at your desk) and create key connections between teammates.
These challenges help foster 'Aha!' moments – those critical experiences that bring teams together by doing something they wouldn't get a chance to do in a corporate environment. Whether it's being prompted to share a story or a unique talent or take on a fun or hilarious challenge, we'll help facilitate experiences that get people talking and create genuine, unforgettable moments for your team.
