IKEA Life Improvement Challenge

Help us to continue to make a difference. We're participating in the 5th annual 'IKEA Life Improvement Co-worker Challenge' – a program that gives our charity the chance to win a makeover from IKEA Costa Mesa. This makeover will help us create a space for Someone Cares Soup Kitchen that is functional, inviting and well-designed – a place our community can feel welcome and comfortable.

Participating is simple. All you have to do is go to and vote for Someone Cares Soup Kitchen. You can vote once a day from February 16th until March 2nd. It's that easy!
