It is pretty cool that more and more people find it important to help others and would like to do something for those in need. The Bike Maffia team building is a great opportunity to do just this in a company setting.

At these events we prepare sandwiches or get cooking – including desserts of course. We deliver an interactive session where we introduce the work of BBM, have a discussion about prejudices and we also try to paint a picture about homelessness from a different angle. Finally there is a quiz and we pack the food we made.

As a result of the summer and fall team buildings, 1000 sandwiches and close to 400 portions of hot food were prepared. Some of these we distributed on the streets with the teams, while the rest were delivered by our Foodsaver couriers to shelters.

In the past months we’ve had many guests – kudos to the teams of ING Bank, AON Hungary, Process Solutions, Arrow, VMware, Celanese, Novotel, Continental Corporate and Decathlon!

For Novotel staff the team building was a surprise event – see below their feedback:

„Starting off for our annual team building event we had no idea where we are heading. After the warm welcome and introductions we participated in interactive discussions, situational exercises and an informative and at the same time fun quiz – a lot of the data shown was quite shocking. What we’ve heard and seen put a whole new perspective on people in need and especially on homeless people. The succeeding sensitization session has definitely allowed all of us to step outside our comfort zones and inspired us to set up a company-level donation project in the future.”

Many thanks to Kőleves and Dürer Kert for the venue!
