The Good Bowl Charity Model

As part of our mission-driven business model, The Good Bowl donates $1 to charity for each signature bowl sold.


Northwest Michigan Supportive Housing provides permanent supportive housing to those experiencing homelessness and struggling with mental illness. 

The supportive aspect of their housing refers to the services provided by NMSH, such as case management, budgeting, life skills and general home/health care. Case managers walk side-by-side with clients to help them improve their quality of life and gain the skills necessary to achieve their greatest level of independence.   NMSH believes these services are a vital need for individuals and families to remain permanently and stably housed.


Shriners Hospitals for Children has a three-part mission but has one goal: to change and improve lives. They do this by caring for their patients, conducting research to gain knowledge and develop new treatments, and providing educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

Since opening their first hospital in 1922, they have been devoted to providing high-quality specialty medical care to the children and families, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status.
