Simply Ali's Saturday Salute!

Simply Ali
is happy to share with you an organization
that is spreading goodwill and fighting
hunger and poverty throughout American communities.

Souper Bowl of Caring is youth across the nation working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game.

In the weeks leading up to or on Super Bowl Sunday, young people take up a collection (many use a soup pot), asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need. They give 100% of their donation directly to the local hunger-relief charity of their choice.

In 2012, more than 10,000 groups collected more than $9.8 million in dollars and food for local hunger-relief charities. That's a total of more than $90 million collected since the movement began in 1990! Help us grow this movement and tackle hunger in America!
Mission Statement

Using the energy of the Super Bowl to mobilize youth in a united national effort to care for people in their local communities who are hungry and those in need.

Vision Statement

Transform the time around the Super Bowl into the nation's largest celebration of giving and serving.

We believe:
The idea for Souper Bowl of Caring is a gift from God
Young people have the ability to serve and should be given opportunities to lead their communities in helping others
Every dollar collected through Souper Bowl of Caring should be donated directly to a charity selected by each participating group
People of all backgrounds and beliefs can work together
Hunger and poverty have a negative impact on individuals and the communities in which they live, yet there is joy in serving and giving to those in need
The excitement and energy surrounding the Super Bowl can be used to engage young people in service while producing lasting hope for all people
