Using Football to Leave a Footprint…and a Teddy Bear

This year is our 10th Super Bowl. Every year we spend the week doing community service in the Super Bowl city. Our goal is to leave a positive footprint in each city. One of our signature projects is the Teddy Bear Picnic where we go into a children’s hospital, hospice, shelter, etc. and hand out teddy bears and encourage the kids, parents, staff and volunteers.

This year we are doing three TBPs and also supporting other charitable events while there.  We’ve had tremendous positive feedback and want to expand and do MORE in 2017…not just during Super Bowl week!

If you would like to make a difference and underwrite one or more of these “picnics” we’d love your support! Please contact us!

Jordin Sparks Experience 2017

Jordin Sparks Experience 10 Year Anniversary
Jordin Sparks Experience 10 Year Anniversary

Here we go again!  We are celebrating 10 years of making a difference during the Super Bowl!  Since 2008 we, along with Jordin and PJ Sparks have dedicated the week prior to the Super Bowl to community service and promoting awareness for various causes. We call it the Jordin Sparks Experience.  Our mission is to leave a positive footprint in each Super Bowl city we visit, and we believe we have done that!  From the Miami Children’s Hospital, to Sheltering Wings in Indianapolis, to the Ryan House in Phoenix, to George Mark House in the Bay area…we’ve been “around the block” to these wonderful places and more.  What a blessing!

Thank you for your support and encouragement over the years…for pushing us to keep doing what we’re doing.  We appreciate you and all the people we’ve met along the way.

Super Bowl 2016 ~ Using Football to Leave a Footprint

9 Super Bowls.  We’ve been to each one since 2008.  Our purpose is to leave a positive footprint in each city and shine a light on those making a difference in their community.   San Francisco Bay Area was no different.

This year we had the honor of serving the community, creating smiles,  and lending our platform to some amazing organizations and events.

We started out at the 1st NFL Women’s Summit
