Vanessa thanks forVanessa thanks for your ctoemnms!Great insight re: REI/Moosejaw/Backcountry etc. I've read a lot about reviews and it seems that reviews of items that people have purchased will tend to go on the positive side, in large part because most people don't like to face up to or admit that they bought something that turned out not to be good. I'll have to find a link to that research The other thing about consumer reviews is that they are usually posted in the immediate afterglow of purchase, not months down...

MAKING LIFE EASY -BLOG TALK RADIO ITZ 4 KIDZ BY KIDZ FOUNDER VICTORIA BAYNES LOPEZ AND MOMWhen my daughter was 3 she came to me and said,"mom, I want to be important and I want to make a difference". As a mom what was I to do. My daughter raised me to have a heart to do volunteering. I found that it is an excellent way to meet people who are passionate about something that interests you. It allows you to network and in unemployment times it allows you to update your resume and you may find that next employer working side by side with you just because you care.

Over $1,000 collected this year again!Our 2013 total is in for Souperbowl of Caring! We collected $1,038.21, comprised of mostly one-dollar bills! Isn't that amazing, how it adds up? It is being donated again to Catholic Charities, to restock their food pantry shelves so they can serve more people in need in the northwest suburbs, right here in our own neighborhoods. We pray that God will bless Catholic Charities in their work, bless the people whose lives they touch every day, and bless the hundreds who donated so that the hungry among...

WOW Souper Bowl of Caring 2013We hosted a chili and soup cook-off for the second year in a row and had 13 entries for the contest. Each soup and chili was fun and festive for the occasion. Raising over $5,000, our Souper Bowl of Caring event turned out exceptionally well. There were 28 teens from the St. Joseph Church WOW Group eager to help out with serving soups, greeting guests, and cleaning up. From start to finish there was a great outcome and response for yet another fantastic Souper Bowl year.

Souper Bowl of Caring Collection 2013This year we invited the youth groups of Grace Lutheran Church and First United Methodist Church to join us in collecting food from the community. Together we covered our little village of Sutherland, NE from end to end, north to south and east to west. Because of the wind, some of the bags left on the door handles (for participants to fill and leave on their porch for us to pick up the following week) blew off their doors so the residents didn't even know we were having a food drive but those who gave,...

Which Team Will Win?We put two ice chests with a Super Bowl team's pennant over each one at our Welcome Center. People put their cans of soup in the ice chest of the team they wanted or thought would win the Super Bowl. Also, Soup Bowls were on the welcome center for monetary donations. Most of the people put their soup in the Ravens ice chest this year; successfully predicting the outcome of the Super Bowl. The members of Del City Christian Church enjoyed a fun way of collecting soup and donations for the Souper...

Night in a BoxOur kids were touched by stories we discussed of homeless families and families dealing with food insecurity. They decided as a fund raiser to fast and spend the night night outside the weekend of Souper Bowl.
We had breakfast on Saturday morning, then participated in the Service Blitz. After we finished helping landscape and wash windows at Waterford, we headed back to church to help with some work around the church prior to setting up camp.
While there was some goofing off in the...

Last year we collected 3,800 cans, so this year we wanted to exceed our goal. Calvary Baptist Church in Oak Hill, Gospel Tabernacle, Oak Hill Baptist, and Page Baptist Church all began scouring the local grocery stores buying up soup. Every time we went into a local store one...
