What do you get when you combine a networking mixer with a care package assembly activity? You get "Netpackaging" – the ideal way for your guests to get to know one another while doing good for others!
As guests arrive at the event, they receive 2 bags filled with 12 sample-sized hygiene kit items such as bars of soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, lip balm, insect repellant wipes, sanitizing wipes, washcloths or note cards. However, each person's bag is filled with the same items, such as a bag filled with all shampoo or a bag filled with all razors, etc. A handout explains their goal – to meet up with others to swap items, so each of their bags are filled with one of each of the different items. When they’ve completed a hygiene kit, they can write an inspirational note on their note card. Then, they can hand in their care packages and in exchange, they receive a raffle ticket, which is entered into a prize drawing held at the end of the networking reception.
Who benefits from this whirlwind of activity? Clean The World is a non-profit that provides these hygiene kits worldwide to people in need. Hygiene kits are sent to those in areas devastated by natural disasters and distributed locally to people in need. Alternatively, if you prefer, the kits from your event could go to a local charity of your choice such as a homeless shelter.
Netpackaging – your guests will have bundles of fun and they'll be putting together bundles for those in need!
