Hunting for clues while helping a cause

Jul 20, 2011

Ten teams of adults running around the streets of Grand Rapids, Michigan in matching t-shirts and medical gear could hardly go unnoticed.

This was the second Grid70 Scavenger Hunt, where 25 Amway employees volunteered to raise money for the Heart of West Michigan United Way, a nonprofit organization that strives to “create opportunities for a good life for everyone in the community through giving, advocating, and volunteering.

The all-day event included a scavenger hunt and after party, complete with a silent auction of products donated by local companies. Scavenger hunt initiatives included digging blindfolded in a mud bucket to find cockroaches (plastic ones, of course), carrying an egg baby and capturing photographs of all completed tasks.

Throughout the action-packed event, the teams proved that fundraising doesn’t always have to be bowties and speeches.

Thanks to Jency Schnettler (on the far left of the photo) for sharing this story.

      Amway, I am very like your product, specially Artistry. I and My friend use Artistry everyday. But some peoples from your Company of China are very Unfriendly to my friend. They abused my friend on Weibo(this the weibo of your staff: http://weibo.com/1624506531). We are Customers, We purechase your product, but you staff abused us. We are very angry of that, should we change our selection of Artistry? Staff from your company represent Amway, they are trainer, abusing comstomer or potential customer are not their job, we are waiting your reply.
