Ask all employees to bring in canned goods to donate to your local food pantry. Now surprise them and ask each department to take the collected cans and collectively and collaboratively arrange them in a way to denote something special or unique about your company. Take pictures and post on the company website. Now donate the cans.
Make it a great day! Make it a Pink Bat Day!
