The Good Bowl Quarterly Charities:
October - December 2019
As part of our business model, The Good Bowl donates $1 to charity for each signature bowl sold. Our guests are given the opportunity to select from three charities that include a local, national and global nonprofit organization rooted in humanitarian and environmental efforts. These featured charities were submitted by our guests, voted on by our employees and rotate each quarter.
Local: BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF NORTHWESTERN MICHIGAN
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan’s vision is for all youth to achieve their full potential. The non-profit provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
The organization currently serves children in a 5-county region in Northwestern Michigan and provides one-to-one mentoring through two types of programming: Community-based and School-based.
National: CHILDREN’S DEFENSE FUND
The Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) is a child advocacy organization that has worked relentlessly for more than 40 years to ensure a level playing field for all children. They champion policies and programs that lift children out of poverty; protect them from abuse and neglect; and ensure their access to health care, quality education and a moral and spiritual foundation.
CDF educates the nation about the needs of children and encourages preventive investments before they get sick, drop out of school, get into trouble or suffer family breakdown.
Global: GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN
Global Fund for Women’s vision is a world in which every woman and girl is strong, safe, powerful, and heard. No exceptions. The organization exists to support the tireless and courageous efforts of women’s groups who work every day to win rights for women and girls.
These groups are working to ensure women can own property, vote, run for office, get paid fair wages, and live free from violence – including domestic violence, sexual assault, and harmful practices such as female genital mutilation.
