Today, I want to share with you what we we did for the Marlins Ayudan Day of Service and Community Engagement. Our entire front office spent the day canvassing Miami with random acts of kindness and spreading Marlins cheer. This was an incredibly rewarding day for each and every one of us. I hope you all enjoy learning about it as much as we did living it!
On Thursday, December 15th, the Miami Marlins gathered at Shake-A-Leg Miami to kick off their Marlins Ayudan Day of Service and Community Engagement. The 2012 Marlins Ayudan teams were announced, each one led by a Club Executive. Each team was given a booklet containing instructions to the day’s events. The booklet included riddles and trivia questions about landmarks throughout Miami, a crossword featuring Club corporate partners, a word search of local celebrities as well as a challenge to perform random acts of kindness throughout the day. The teams were also assigned to a school where they would give an hour of their day to spend time with children at a Teach for America or City Year classroom. Finally, each team was given $1,000 to spend throughout the day, with the overall challenge of being the team that made the most significant impact in Miami. After a few minutes of deliberation, all 14 Ayudan teams took off in their own van driven by a Miami-Dade Police Officer and spent the day canvassing Miami, engaging our new neighbors in a “Random Acts of Kindness-themed” Scavenger Hunt.
