Impact 4 Good offers an activity that allows corporate groups to give back to Habitat for Humanity and its new home beneficiaries for groups that do not have a full day to donate to Habitat to build a home. The task-oriented activity calls on teams to use financial management, time management, and skills analysis to complete their tasks and earn the most money, while simultaneously designing and constructing home décor items for new Habitat homeowners that will soon move into homes they have worked hard to earn.
Teams of approximately 8 participants arrive at their tables to find a picture, last name, and short bio of a family that will benefit from a Habitat home in the coming year. All items constructed by the teams are for those specific families. Following an icebreaker and a brief awareness builder on Habitat for Humanity, the activity begins!
Following the construction of all the items for the beneficiary families, funds are tallied and the winning team is announced with great fanfare. Then, a representative from the real winning team (Habitat for Humanity) will thank activity participants for their meaningful contribution of gifts (based on availability). These gifts will be the first housewarming gifts families will receive and will go a long way toward making a beneficiary’s new house into a home!
