Cause-related (Home) Office Team Building

Challenge week

When was the last time you challenged yourself or did something out of your daily routine?

We realise that sometimes bringing a new activity into your day might be very hard especially considering our busy schedules and all the tasks both at the office and at home. This is why we are inviting you to join our Week Of Challenge – an initiative full of exciting and curious activities designed to take you out of your routine and your comfort zone.

The Cedar foundation’s team will guide you through a weekly challenge course with prompts and recommendations and will assist you in recording your progress. There is also an added value to it. By registering to participate in our Challenge week, you will help support disadvantaged children and young people who were faced with a number of challenges from a very young age.

600 000 steps challenge

Have you been stuck in your home office for the past months?
Does your fitness routine consist of frequent walks to the fridge and back?
Does your pedometer app show double digits only?

If you are willing to support a good cause in a fun, healthy and engaging way, gather a team of max 7 and enter our 600 000 steps challenge. Be active and dedicate a week to overcome a distance of 600 000 steps. Each step will get you closer to your better self and help us secure a fair life for underprivileged groups. It is easy, fun, safe!

The Cedar Foundation needs to raise a minimum of 600 000 BGN each year in order to provide quality care to children at risk and disabled youths.

Charity Company Calendar

Are you one of those old school fellas who appreciates a good paper wall or desk calendar? And is there anything more satisfying than crossing something off your to-do list?

If you like to mark meetings with colleagues or friends, or count how many days you have before your next trip; If you circle the birthdays or name days of folks and relatives, Then our Charity company calendar is what you need.

Choose a theme that is special and fun for you and your colleagues, ask them to take their picture and send the photographs over to us. We will help design and print your company calendar and you and your colleagues can support our cause by purchasing it.

Online Quiz

Share your social responsibility with colleagues, take a sip of beer and strengthen the team spirit during our charity quiz. Cedar’s team will organize an unforgettable evening for your company, during which you will be able to test the strength of your knowledge and learn new interesting facts.

The quiz includes various thematic rounds in the fields of history, sport, art, literature, science and more.

Due to the pandemic situation the format of the traditional pub quiz was adapted and now we are offering to organize online quizzes for companies that work remotely.

Promise Silent Auction

How about your morning coffee in the office being served not by anyone, but by your own manager? Or having a personal driver who will take you to work all week? How about leaving an hour early next Friday?
