Holiday Team Building with a Charitable Twist

During the holiday season, many or our team building clients choose a holiday team building event with a charitable cause to round off one year and begin another.

Never losing site of our core mission of bringing teams closer together through engagement and camaraderie, Feet First’s CSR events align team building goals with clients’ desire to contribute to good causes (And, we should note, we’re always left in admiration of our clients’ level of dedication to their…

Shoe Design – For a Great Cause

We do a variety of charitable team building events here and one of our favorites is the “Style Your Soles” event. Not only do participants get to access their inner artists while creating a design on blank canvas… shoes (sorry!), but they also get the chance to work together to create a marketing campaign for their creations, jingles, posters, and even commercials. A lot of us haven’t drawn on our shoes since we owned a pair of Chuck Taylors in middle school – you might be surprised to recall how much fun you can have… and how much your design tastes have changed! At the end…
