Safe Surfin' Foundation
It should come as no surprise that the fraternity that cares enough about children to make Mooseheart a reality enters the 21st century with protection of children who use the Internet as a key concern. In 2008, the Moose entered into a partnership with the Safe Surfin’ Foundation, a Virginia-based organization which has been a leader in attempts to keep the Internet a safe place for children to explore.
In addition to educating children and their parents on using the Internet safely, support provided by the Moose has enabled Safe Surfin’ to expand its programs to furnishing law enforcement with computer equipment to be used to pursue Internet predators, as well as ballistic vests to protect officers while apprehending these criminals. Moose is also a strong proponent of the EZ Child ID program, which provides parents with an electronic file that contains personal information, electronic fingerprints, photographs and a video file of their children. This information is readily available to law enforcement if a child becomes lost or is abducted.
More information about the Safe Surfin’ Foundation can be found in our Forms/Documents section. To learn how your Lodge can participate, please contact Shawn Baile either by E-Mail or at 630-966-2214.

LOOM and WOTM Community Service Projects
Yes! LOOM- We still collect Aluminum Can Pull Tabs, we help the Lion's Club collect old prescription glasses. There is a container for them near the main door in the Lodge. Please bring in the items to help with our community service projects. Thank you for supporting your Lodge.
WOTM-We are collecting the Campbell Soup Labels and Box Tops for Education. Please save them and bring it into the WOTM Office or give it to our Moose Charities. We will do the work in counting and mailing them into Moose Charities.
Here is a list of some of the other items that we are collecting or that you can do:
1. “GoodSearch.com” By using this search engine on your computer instead of yahoo or google, Good Search will pay Moose Charities one penny for each inquiry.
2. “Goodshop.com” A percentage of up to 30 % of your purchase will also go to Moose Charities.
3. General Mill’s “Boxtops for Education” Immediate cash is sent to Moose Charities when you clip the ten-cent coupons from many General Mills products.
4. Target “Take Charge of Education” Every time you use your TARGET Redcard, Target will donate 1% of your purchase to Mooseheart schools. There are only 125 moose members enrolled in this program nationwide.
5. “Recycle for Mooseheart” This is a no brainer for all. You simply collect ink cartridges, laptop computers, cell phones including all accessories, children’s electronic games, and digital cameras from yourself, family, and local businesses.
6. Campbell’s “Labels for Education” By simply clipping the bar codes from Campbell’s soup and Pepperidge Farm products we can earn either 1 or 5 points. Think about it, if every member of this fraternity would just save one
Campbell’s soup label bar code we could receive a new van to transport our children!
7. Food Lion “Shop and Share” Simply register your MVP card - Each time you shop at Food Lion and use your card, a portion of your total grocery purchase will be donated to Mooseheart Schools.
8. “My Coke Rewards” Save the points from coke products and donate them to Mooseheart to obtain sports equipment, textbooks, school supplies and other rewards for our Mooseheart schools.
9. Tyson “Project A+” Simply clip and save the bar code from Tyson Project A+ labels and earn 24 cents for each one.
10. Terra-Cycle Terra-Cycle is a new addition to our recycle program. Trash collecting earns Mooseheart $0.02 each for items such as empty Capri Sun drink packets, Lays Chip bags, discarded candy and cookie wrappers, and many other snack and household item containers.
Terra-Cycle will in turn make backpacks, pencil cases, and other school supplies with the recycled items. Just think, all of these items would have been thrown away and they would end up in a landfill. This way we are doing our civic duty to keep America clean, green, and helping our children at Mooseheart. We are in a way picking from the “money tree” and giving to our children.
Please visit the Moose Charities website on a regular basis as we are constantly finding new programs to help Mooseheart.
Thank you for helping Moosheart School

This is What we do for Mooseheart
"I have now been at Mooseheart for a little over five years. I have changed a lot, but I do believe that it has been for the better. I am now more respectful, kind, and more concerned for those around me. I know what behaviors are expected in different settings and situations. I have also really Matured not just in my actions, but also in my thoughts. Through my leadership roles in sport, clubs, and Mooseheart's ROTC program, I have acquired better people skills. After all the opportunities giving to me, I wish to give them back by going into the U. S. Military.
After high school,I wish to attend Lewis University of Romeovillie,Illinois. Here, I wish to study Aviation mechanics while going through their Air Force ROTC program. I know that none of this would be possible if it weren't for the love and care from others. So, the best way to give back to those individuals is to protect their liberties and other freedoms. This, I pray, will be compensation enough for all that has been given to me our of love. Thank you for always being there for me."
Christopher Schwartz, Mooseheart Class of 2014

Nails in the Fence
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer
a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into
the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the
father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell
his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. But it won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound will still be there. A
verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.” Remember that friends are very rare
jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.
