The Good Bowl Quarterly Charities:
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: Traverse Bay Children's Advocacy Center
Traverse Bay Children’s Advocacy Center is a regional response center for the protection and wellbeing of children and families. Its mission is to respond to allegations of child abuse and to bring justice, hope and healing to those who have been harmed.
They believe that a world without abuse is not only possible, but attainable, through prevention education, outreach and awareness.
National: Wounded Warrior Project
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. WWP seeks to assist men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world.
Services include combat stress recovery programs, education, wellness, family support and an alumni program to keep veterans connected to their peers.
More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.
Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care. By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, anyone can help a borrower to start or to grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential.
