Gun Run for Souper Troopers

Gun Run for Souper Troopers

Personal message

Hi, my name is Joseph Power. I am currently doing a bar mitzvah and as part of the whole experience, I have been asked to do something for charity. 

The shul gave us a couple of great organizations that we could help. One of them was Souper Troopers.  I straight away wanted to help homeless people. 

I get so sad when I stop at a stop street and see people who have nothing, no home, no job, no food, no nothing. I did something this month where my Mom and I made food and gave it to homeless people digging in the bin. 

Seeing these people’s faces when we gave them the food was priceless. This gave me even more inspiration to do this. 

 Souper Troopers goal is to restore the dignity to homeless people and make them a part of society. I 100% agree with their goal. There's no dignity in going through days old trash. 

Now, the way I plan to make money is to run in a race called the Gun Run. I am going to be running the 10km race. "You're not the fastest person on the planet," says my dad. He is right on that one. And if you need proof, just come to my soccer games. I will have to train hard for this, but the thought of helping people will motivate me.

The way I am planning to make money for Souper Troopers is by asking you to please sponsor me to run the race.  My goal is to make R7500 for this worthy cause.  

I feel like it is important to not only donate money but to actually go out and do something myself. On the 16th of September, I will be helping them with their big event where there will be food, games, other items and haircuts given to those in need. 

I would really appreciate it if you chose to sponsor me and therefore donate to the poor. 

Please Help Us Spread The Word: Share This Post 

Thank you,

 

Joseph

Kerry Hoffman spent a day sharing soup and sandwiches with people living on the street and that experience led to the establishment of Souper Troopers, a level 1 B-BBEE contributor, registered NPO and PBO that aims to restore dignity to homeless people and help them reintegrate them into society, thereby achieving its purpose of eradicating homelessness.
