CAREKIT™ TEAM building and community activities

CareKit Project

The CleanConscience CareKit™ Project is the perfect activity for community-focussed team building exercises. It’s also a great class team, group or club activity that not only helps provide life-saving toiletries to those in dire need, but it also helps us raise much needed funds to build on the work we already do.

If your organisation, school, club or group would like to take part in a CareKit™ project session then please get in touch with Gwen Powell on 07941 524 222 or complete the form here.

ABOUT THE  CAREKIT™ PROJECT

The project began when a company providing cabin services to the hospitality sector had a client that decided to rebrand and a large volume of first class comfort kits and hand towels became redundant. These were donated to CleanConscience and the CareKit™ project was born.

As part of a volunteer group, you will work in teams to sort these kits and add extra items to turn them into emergency hygiene packs.  These are then bulk packed and ready to be shipped to your chosen charity recipient or homeless shelter or you can choose to nominate a humanitarian organisations that ship emergency packs to areas in the world that are in desperate need; areas where natural and economic disaster threatens the lives of vulnerable children and adults.

Each kit is also sponsored by your company to help us to fund this important work, so you choose how many to target your teams with building. As each item has to be hand picked and packed it’s a great way to discover the motivators, planners and leaders within your teams and at the same time make a much needed contribution to the work we do, both financially and physically.

The first class comfort kits already contain the following items:

  • Toiletry bag
  • Small soap bar
  • Pen
  • Face Cloth
  • Razor & shaving cream
  • Hand & body lotion
  • Socks
  • Toothbrush & paste
  • Earplugs

Extras to be added {all or a selection of these}*:

  • 1 x Travel Size Body Wash
  • 1 x Travel Size Shampoo
  • 1 x Travel Size Conditioner
  • 1 x Travel Size Body Lotion
  • 1 x Travel Size Soap

* provided by us and packed by you

HOW DOES THE CAREKIT™ PROJECT WORK?

  • Decide on a date and location for your event; determine how many toiletry bags your team would like to build, and select a beneficiary organisation to receive the CareKit toiletry bags.
  • Send e-mails, put up flyers, and talk about your CareKit™ event in the classroom, at team meetings or club meet-ups; get the group excited about volunteering.
  • Assemble the CareKit™ toiletry bags, pack them in boxes, and then provide the gift of comfort and hygiene to a local homeless shelter or humanitarian aid group.
  • Remember to take photos!

Assembling the CareKit toiletry bags is appropriate for children as well as adults. Volunteers must be at least 8 years old. Children ages 8 through 15 require supervision by a parent or guardian.
