1. Make-A-Wish Foundation

Their goal is to grant the dying wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Every Super Bowl since 1982 has had at least one Make-A-Wish kid in attendance!

2. NFL Play 60

With the goal of tackling obesity in the U.S., the NFL's Play 60 Initiative encourages the next generation of youth to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.

3. The NFL Foundation

The NFL Foundation's Salute to Service program was created to recognize the outstanding efforts by members of the NFL community to honor and support U.S. service members, veterans and their families. One of this year's finalists for the award is Atlanta Falcons' own head coach Dan Quinn. To learn more about the NFL's Salute to Service and this year's finalists click here.

Every year the NFL Foundation contributes a $1 million Super Bowl Legacy Grant to each host city. To find out what else the NFL Foundation is doing in the community go to their website.

4. Touchdown Houston

Touchdown Houston is the charitable program of the Houston Super Bowl's Host Committee, whose focus is on Education, Health, and Community Enhancement. They look to donate a minimum of $4 Million to non-profit organizations throughout the community. To learn more about Touchdown Houston, you can visit their website.

5. USA Football

USA Football's Heads up Football was designed to make football safety a priority, through a comprehensive and full-feature safety program. To date it is used in over 7,000 youth and high school programs. To learn more about how your youth and high school programs can become a part of this movement, visit their Website.

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake.
