In 2017, we are hoping to make an even larger impact, and we can't do it without your help. Whether you host a collection, volunteer at one of our receiving charities, or contribute directly to Souper Bowl of Caring, you make a difference.
Transitioning into 2017, there is always something refreshing about the start of the New Year! A new year brings new insights, new hope and new opportunities. Many people take time to reflect on all that has or (or hasn't) been accomplished during the previous year. The New Year serves as a time to set new goals, take on new challenges and make resolutions.
Resolutions range from saving up for a dream car to embarking on new adventures. Of course, there's always the ever famous resolution to lose pounds. Souper Bowl of Caring encourages you to keep up with your resolutions, and challenges you to add one more: We invite you to also raise pounds! We challenge you to start 2017 off right, by raising pounds of food items or resources for your favorite charity.
implementing new ideas, setting higher goals or even drafting new players to your team.
Lastly, we wanted to leave you with one of our favorite Anthony Robbins quotes:
"Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something by back becoming more."
