Give Backpack is a CSR team-building activity in which teams complete various engaging challenges to fill a backpack for the homeless. The fun, engaging and sometimes challenging tasks are delivered to each team via a tablet. Teams enter their answers, including photos and videos of their exploits. On successfully completing challenges, teams are rewarded with items to fill their backpacks. Items include non-perishable food and toiletries. Layout and practicality for the backpack are key; the teams must meet the criteria set out at the program's start. Once the backpacks are complete, the champion team is revealed! The winning team is awarded an additional donation to a B1G1 worthy cause. The filled backpacks are donated to a local shelter for the homeless.
Give Backpack is an opportunity to unite your team by helping those less fortunate. This program encourages creative thinking and problem-solving. Through giving, individual morale is boosted, and a sense of pride and ownership is developed in the team. Give Backpack is based around helping those in need while ensuring the group enjoys a brilliant, shared experience that will stay with them long after the program has finished.
Corporate Social Responsibility Outcomes
Backpacks created by teams in "Give Backpack" are given to the homeless through a local charity.
It was so nice to see the enthusiasm of the KFC team. A massive thank you for choosing us as the nominated charity - not only were the backpacks a wonderful donation but the exposure to our work was really helpful. We would love to work with you again.
