Charitable Team Building: Remember the troops

It's already time to start thinking about planning the company's Holiday Party. What will you do this year?

You want it to be fun, but meaningful and memorable. In other words, NOT the bad karaoke outing, subzero ziplining, or, ahem, those other "incidents" we no longer officially discuss in the office.

You want a way for your company to give back a little - especially to those whom others seem to have forgotten. Like the troops serving over in Afghanistan - no, they're not all home yet.

Why not Operation Care Kit?

Operation Care Kit immerses your team into high-energy team-building fun - and gives back to the world in a very special way.

In Operation Care Kit, your teams compete to assemble care packages for men and women serving overseas in uniform, vigilantly defending our freedoms and interests from enemy attack, far from home and family.

Sometimes the troops can feel a little bit forgotten, so far from home. They don't get to spend the holidays or birthdays with their families and friends. They don't get a big Thanksgiving dinner - they get MRE's, harsh conditions, and maybe the occasional letter from home.

Regardless of your point of view on their mission, it's important to remember that going into harm's way wasn't the first choice of our soldiers. They're there because, due to situations out of their control, we need them there.

Let's show them that we remember and appreciate their service on our behalf. Get your office mates together, have a little fun - and make the world a better place.

Operation Care Kit might just be the perfect add-on to this year's company party - one that makes it memorable for good reasons, rather than... (oh, you remember the embarrassing stuff from last year. We don't need to remind you.)
