SHRM, Ko Kid Hungy, and The Big Lebowski
In what has become a much anticipated part of the SHRM Annual conference, the social team is once again taking time out on Sunday to benefit No Kid Hungry, this time hitting the lanes in tribute to The Big Lebowski and, of course, NKH mega-supporter Jeff Bridges.
This year, more than 16 million children in America will face hunger. That’s one in five. Share our Strength is working to connect hungry kids with the food they need to grow and thrive. We’re doing our part to connect kids to the healthy food they need every day. Every dollar we raise will make a huge impact for kids. In fact, just $1 can help connect a child with 10 meals.
We are proud to partner with Dice.com once again in sponsoring this event. Dice is an important part of the social and HR infrastructure, and we are honored and appreciative to have them on our side! Joining us is the roster of social media leaders in the HR space. Last year we topped $11,000 in donations. We’d like to see that number go up!
So, what’s your role? (Get it? Role? Like roll? Because it’s bowling? Never mind.)
We have 100 tickets available. You’ll notice the price is a very reasonable $0. That’s because we are asking you to jump over to our No Kid Hungry portal and make your donation directly. You can do that first, or do it after. You can even do it on site if you really want. Or all of the above. But please make sure you do it. The reason we are set up this way is that 100% of the funds go directly to No Kid Hungry. All of it. Every dollar.
Not attending SHRM Annual this year? No problem. We hope you will consider making a donation to this worthy cause, and we will toast your name at the event!
And since our love for sport and helping others is nearly matched by our love for playing dress up, we are taking the inspiration for the theme from one of the greatest bowling movies ever, The Big Lebowski. With all the great work Jeff Bridges has done in support of No Kid Hungry, it seems only right. In fact, for any donations of $500 or more, we’ll re-enact a scene of your choice from the movie and share the video with the whole world.
