1. Odyssey Teams
California-based Odyssey Teams, which has five full-time employees and about 40 contractors, helps corporate employees engage in team-building exercises to construct prosthetic hands and kids’ bikes to donate to those in need. More than 150,000 bikes and about 8,000 prosthetic hands made by companies that hire Odyssey to conduct the team-building activities have been donated to people in need. The prosthetics have been sent to people in 61 countries, including Kenya, Vietnam, Colombia and Zimbabwe. Odyssey Teams also works with cleft palate and other prosthetic limb groups, among others.
