JUST ANOTHER CORPORATE EVENT
In Greenville County, 65,000 people live below the federal poverty line. This year, my partner and I volunteered to plan an agency fundraiser for United Way to raise money for their career development partners. Together as a team of 3 people, we raised over $20,000 within our agency.
Just Another Corporate Event, our week-long fundraising campaign, was based in corporate office humor. We invented games, created a smash room, and played hype man for a week.
Along with financial donations, we received hundreds of cans, interview clothing donations, and good karma.
HAPPY HOUR BASH
Remember that time the printer worked? Me neither. For $5, our coworkers got a chance to release their office aggression on some old computers. We created a make-shift anger room with a happy hour viewing party. Highly recommend this as an office coping mechanism.
CEILING TILE PENCIL TOSS
Inspired by my own experiences as a person who works, we created a very dangerous game around throwing a pencil into a ceiling tile. Each team had one minute to get as many pencils into the suspended ceiling as possible.
PAPER PLANE BRIEF TOSS
Each team was asked to engineer their own paper planes and bring them to the competition. There were 2 rounds per team. The farthest distance won the event.
Along with financial donations, we exceeded our goal for both clothing and can donations throughout the week.
