Three years ago, Meir Kalmanson threw a Super Bowl watch party for the homeless. This year, he hosted 15 parties across the US. Around the Super Bowl in 2017, Kalmanson noticed a homeless man’s sign that really caught his attention: “I don’t want anything to eat. I don’t want to drink. All I want is to be seen. I want to talk to somebody.” So, he brainstormed what he could do to help that man and others and had a Super Soul Party for a half-dozen homeless men living on the streets of New York. He bought them all football jerseys and took them to a friend’s party at a rooftop bar. He posted a video of the Super Bowl party on YouTube and started a movement. Volunteers reached out from all over the country, wanting to get involved. His nonprofit Soup Soul Party was born, and this year he partnered with homeless shelters in 15 cities.
He did it again today but hasn't posted the video yet.
