Team building for charity is a high priority for DaVita Kidney Care. They’re one of Magnovo’s most devoted clients because they understand how important it is to be a good corporate neighbor.
In Italian, the word davita means “giving life” and that’s precisely what DaVita Kidney Care does for nearly 2 million patients in 12 countries around the globe.
It began in the 1990s as a small struggling firm. DaVita has blossomed into an international brand known for its kindness and care. Their 70,800 “teammates” as DaVita employees are called have donated $11 million and 180,000 hours of volunteer service to make the world a healthier, happier place.
DaVita’s mission is “to be the provider, partner, and employer of choice.”
Among their core values are service excellence, integrity, and fun–all of which make team building for charity with Magnovo a perfect fit.
The fun of team building for charity
We hosted a Rescue Buddies Charity Team Building Workshop with 50 DaVita teammates at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. It was the perfect setting for a company that’s always eager for a bit of leadership training Magnovo-style.
Rescue Buddies—stuffed bears and other cuddly beasts—comfort and reassure children who’ve just experienced a trauma. Police officers, EMS personnel, and other first responders bring them to crime scenes, accidents, house fires, and other tragedies and give them to young survivors.
Our Rescue Buddies are often the only lifelines they have to cling to and they provide tremendous emotional support. Their new best friends help stabilize them so that they can take the next steps on the road to recovery.
The staffers divided into small groups and competed for the components they’d need to assemble and stuff the toys. Each stage of the assembly was full of laughter and camaraderie. It was also a way of sharpening the communications and leadership skills we’d just reviewed. First the theory, then the practice. Perfect!
The impact of team building for charity
The recipient of our 50 donations was a phenomenal organization called the Rainbow Dream Academy. These dedicated teachers restore troubled children on the brink of self-destruction.
Part of the student creed is: I will accept my duties and responsibilities…..I love myself, and loving myself….This reflects the school’s approach to both the education and the emotional welfare of their students.
Magnovo is honored to work with companies like DaVita who are so dedicated to helping schools like the Rainbow Dream Academy. They both make team building for charity worthwhile.
