Everyone knows souperheroes don't do it for fame or glory, but a little special recognition doesn't go astray. The earlier you get into it to reach your goal, on a first come first serve basis, you have a better opportunity to choose which souperhero item you prefer (see below) before it runs out.

The first 100 people to sign up will win a souper-lanyard
The first 100 to raise $100 will win a souper-keyring (choices include Captain America's shield, a Captain America dogtag, the classic Batman logo or a Batmobile)
The first 50 registrants to raise $250 will win a 16GB USB flash drive (choices include Superman, Batman, Captain America, Spiderman or the Green Lantern)
The first 20 people to raise $500 will get a souper-pen that projects the batsignal
The first 10 souperheroes to achieve the Platinum Ladle badge by raising $1000 will win a souper-cape (choices include Batman, Batgirl, Superman, Supergirl and Spiderman)
The first 5 souperheroes to raise $1500 will win 2 movie tickets
The elite fundraiser - the first 5 registrants to reach $2000 will get a souperhero pack (choices include Batman, Superman, Captain America or Wonder Woman)

The Salvation Army Australia has to be one of the most trusted and well known charity organisations in Australia. The charity and help they give out to people going through a hard time is tangible. The funds you raise during the Souperhero challenge will assist the Salvos to continue to provide the good work they do to help those experiencing hardship and disadvantage. There is no doubt the recipients of their help are eternally grateful for their charitable intervention.

They reach out and go where many do not tread. They provide emergency food parcels, grocery vouchers, help with utility bills, offer beds and meals, offer financial counselling to struggling families so they can make the most of their dollars, they help with unemployment, addiction, domestic violence and much more.

However, none of this would be possible without your generosity and compassion. All you need to do to take on the challenge is to replace every meal with soup to raise much needed funds. One of Australia's much loved TV Chef (Better Homes and Gardens) and acclaimed Food Author, Fast Ed (Ed Halmagyi) will take part in this year's challenge and he'll be whipping up special soup recipes suitable for all mealtimes, even breakfast.

So go on, head on over to Souperhero Central Command and join the squad of Souperheroes and fulfil your mission.
