The Power of One
The premise behind Random Acts of Kindness is that it just takes one – action, smile, favor, comment, etc. – to make a difference. And, in this event, teams will experience that power not just once, but many times as they complete challenges that build on this premise!
As guests arrive, they receive a gift themselves - team identification that will help them find their teammates! Once teams are gathered, each receives an iPad. The emcee takes them through how they can access the random challenges they’ll come across in this event. Some are available for teams to do at any time, in any location. Others require teams to make their way to hotspots on a map of the event area. When they arrive at that location, the challenge opens and the kindness can commence!
Sample challenges teams will come across include:
- Answering trivia questions about kind deeds that have changed the world.
- Listening to sound bites that relate to a challenge they must do. For instance, after hearing a snippet of Man In The Mirror by Michael Jackson, they may have to take a picture of themselves doing something good with an item mentioned in the song. Will they put a “nickel” in a collection box? Pick up and throw away a “broken bottle top?” It’s up to them!
- Taking a photo of everyone on their team holding up a handwritten placard stating the reason why they love their company.
- Recording a video of themselves performing a random act of kindness for a stranger.
- Repurposing a piece of trash they’ve picked up before throwing it away.
- After earning a certain number of points, teams are instructed to pick up 12 postcards and write a note of encouragement that will be sent to a soldier through Soldier’s Angels, or to a sick child via Cards for Hospitalized Kids.
- Solving a clue that reveals what they have to do. For instance, teams may read, "It's not just nice to let someone go in front of you in line – it will also help you figure out where to look in this - EXCUSEYOUMUSTPULLUPGENIUSEMUSFEUDINUTUNDER - to reveal what we need you to videotape yourselves giving someone on another team. When teams look at what’s in front of "U" the letters spell out "compliment."
- Completing a challenge before time runs out, such as seeing how many people will say "thank you" as you hold the door open for them in 30 seconds.
- Finding bonus points by unlocking secret challenges hidden throughout the event area!
Each team's goal is to reach a certain number of points for completing challenges. When they've achieved it, they get a "congratulations" message on their device, but they're encouraged to keep going. At a set time, the game is closed, but when it's over, your guests' eyes will be opened wide when they learn how many random acts of kindness they as a group delivered. After showing themselves a bit of kindness, by giving themselves a hearty round of applause for a job well done, the event ends with the group heading out feeling the powerful impact they as one group made on each other and the local community.
