Testimonials

What our corporate partners and customers say about our team building activities matters much more than what we say. We’ve worked with thousands of corporate employees, hospital partners and publisher partners. Their feedback in the form of team building testimonials, is the very foundation for our success. We’ve included some of those comments so you can see the depth of our efforts described in the words of our partners.

When we were searching for a Humanitarian Event for a team building opportunity, it didn’t take us long to fall in love with Cheeriodicals and their mission.

From the moment I watched the Cheeriodicals video explaining exactly what they do, why they do it, and the huge impact that they have on the lives of so many-I was sold!

Thank you so much for everything you did for this event. It was WONDERFUL! I have had nothing but positive feedback. It’s been a pleasure to work with you, and I hope we can work together again in the future.

We chose to work with Cheeriodicals because we like their concept and believe it is a perfect way to brighten the mood of the children and their families. Each year, our employees participate in a team-building exercise that makes a difference in the community. This year, our team of 400 personnel were proud to use corporate team building with Cheeriodicals to bring a day of joy to children struggling with medical issues at New Orleans Children’s.

Phil Smith

VP of Government and Institutional Banking, Wells Fargo

Our firm has done Cheeriodicals twice. Both times were amazing as they gave our reps a chance to spread some cheer, but doing the teambuilding exercise before the event got the whole agency involved in this special event. It allowed all of us to feel connected to the kids we served!

Managing Partner, Northwestern Mutual, St. Louis

Smiles are contagious, and the permanent memory of bringing one to a sick child’s face will forever be with us. Cheeriodicals helped our organization throught corporate team building bring a little joy to those in our Columbus community that needed it the most. We might have benefited from the event emotionally more than those that received the gift boxes.

Troy Kemelgor

Managing Partner, Kemelgor Financial Group

The Cheeriodicals team come in and everything was taken care of from unloading the trucks to organizing the boxes. Our patients and their parents love the unique Cheeriodicals boxes filled with wonderful things to make their stay better. Thanks for doing such a great job for Children’s Hospitals.

Cathleen Randon

The response from the MDP group about this experience has been overwhelmingly positive. The humility and kindness an event like this brings out in people is remarkable – it’s the true work of leaders. Thank you and your team for such a successful event. We look forward to working with you in the future!

START DELIVERING SMILES

Make your next team building event the most memorable and meaningful your team has ever experienced!

We chose to partner with Cheeriodicals and LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in December 2013. We felt the team building activity and delivering gifts for the children would be a great way to kick off our Holiday Season. What we received in return was much more than we imagined. Seeing the eyes of the children light up when they opened their new green box was priceless, and to know that you provided a few more moments of happiness to the children in the midst of their hospital stay was a great gift to our associates

I have been working here since March [2016] and am the first Child Life Specialist the NICU has had. Shortly after I started we had a visit from [WWT and] Cheeriodicals. At the time all 70ish (not sure what our census was at the time) received a parent box for either preemies or infants. The parents loved them! I quickly went room to room with a cart to drop them off and later heard from nurses how wonderful the boxes were. When a family was present and I got to hand them the box they were often surprised.

The thing about an ICU setting is you never know why a new face is walking through your door. Carrying in that big green box became such a catalyst to meet some wonderful families in need of Child Life services.

You see, starting out as 1 specialist in a unit as large as ours I had to start small so I was missing a lot of families. Making sure families got their box not only supported them but further supported me in my confidence to introduce services and meet these amazing families and further prioritize and develop Child Life services in our NICU. So all of this is simply to say thank you! Thank you for your bright green boxes that have made so many parents feel supported and have been a great conversation starter that has lead to furthering Child Life services. From this last visit I still have a few boxes and when new families come I continue to hand them out.

Thanks for helping us bring an amazing day of SMILES to the “Most important house in Alabama” – The Ronald McDonald House. We loved working with your team.

Happiness can heal – it accelerates a family’s fight against childhood cancer and other diseases so we’re thrilled to partner with Cheeriodicals to bring joy to Fort Lauderdale families.

Managing Partner, Northwestern Mutual, South Florida

We wanted to share the tremendous satisfaction from participating in this incredible day. Seeing the smiles on the faces of the children, parents and hospital staff in Atlanta was something none of us will ever forget.

Siemens Healthcare works every day to develop sophisticated technologies that help doctors effectively diagnose and treat patients. This event was a special opportunity for us to bring smiles to the faces of these young patients.

Dave Pacitti

President, Head of Healthcare North America, Siemens Healthcare

I was deeply touched and moved by all the kids at the hospital and Cheeriodicals made it so easy for us to make such a big impact not only on our organization but on our whole community. It was refreshing to work with such great people.

Alex Tronco

Managing Partner, Northwestern Mutual - Albany, NY

“Overall, it was outstanding!  I think New York Presybterian Children’s was the right choice for the big green boxes of cheer.  Cheeriodicals did an amazing job with the team-building Wednesday evening setting context for the purpose – and as well walking us through our first distribution on Thursday.  Sometimes, it’s just the small things that have a major impact.  Gift giving always feels good…especially at a Children’s hospital.  Many thanks again for helping us bring Cheer to patients in the New York area.  I look forward to our continued partnership.

Lori Moore

Corporate Meeting Planner, GE

“We chose to sponsor this event because of the impact it has in children’s lives in Alabama. The Cheeriodicals provide a much needed smile, a break from challenges the children and their families face.  While our associates take time throughout the year to give back to local organizations, as part of our Share the Good community service focus this week, more than 125 of our local associates had the opportunity to be involved in a team building activity, packaging and delivering the Cheeriodicals while also having fun as a team.”

Bill Horton

President, Regions Financial

We had such an amazing event working with the Cheeriodicals Team in Orlando. Our team gained so much inspiration as they assembled the Cheeriodicals knowing that each Big Green Box of Cheer would bring a smile to a child in the hospital. We were all emotionally touched by the impact of all the emails, social media posts, and more from the families following the deliveries to 6 hospitals nationwide.

Barbara Perry

Abbott Nutrition

Thanks Cheeriodicals for helping our team come together to change lives in our corporate market, Washington, DC.  Our team of 50+ worked so hard to assemble the Cheeriodicals and the joy from that work was everlasting.  Our delivery to Children’s National Medical Center and the reaction by the children was as good as it gets.  Team building can change lives!
