For the second year in a row, my colleagues and I participated in the Rise Against Hunger project by packaging dry meals for a family of four. The meals are sent all over the world. The Rise team provides all supplies and equipment, and works with a local coordinator to set up and organize the event. Employees just need to show up with their best effort and a sense of humor.
We all look forward to this project for a chance to do some good in the world, and a chance for some healthy competition as we work out the most efficient (and fun) way to accomplish out task.
By the end, we’ve packaged our quota of meal packets, and spent a couple of hours catching up on the news for folks in the organization while we do something out of the ordinary. If you haven’t had the opportunity to practice doing some good yet this year, I encourage you to look for an opportunity in the next couple of weeks!
