Greetings from Moose Charities

Every February is the time of year when we cover the walls of our lodge home with rocking chairs to help raise awareness and money for the Endowment Fund.

Are you ready to rock the Rocker?

Ideas/Suggestions to promote the Rocker:

  • Lodge officers meet and agree to hold a friendly competition.
  • Create a competition: Use different colored paper for the Rockers for each group created in the competition.
  • “Work” the Rocker Fundraiser every day and every night in February. Use special dates during the month for added fun: Groundhog Day, Super Bowl Day, Valentine’s Day, Giving Hearts Day, Random Acts of Kindness Day, and Presidents’ Day.
  • During meal functions: Place paper Rockers at each table setting and/or provide a paper Rocker at the same time as providing liquid refreshments at a table or bar.
  • Keep a running total/thermometer posted in the lodge.
  • Ring a bell, bang a gong, blow a horn, or do a happy dance whenever a donation is made.


What fun activity is your Lodge doing to promote the Rocker?


All donations will need to be submitted to Moose Charities by March 15th.


Thank you for all you do for our Mooseheart Children and Moosehaven Seniors through Moose Charities.

Mooseheart Child City & School is a residential childcare facility, located on a 1,000-acre campus 38 miles west of Chicago. The Child City is a home for children and teens in need, from infancy through high school. Mooseheart cares for youth whose families are unable, for a wide variety of reasons, to care for them. Some have lost one or both parents; others are living in environments that are simply not conducive to healthy growth and development.

Children live in one of thirty residences, each home for six to twelve children. The heart of the program is the Family Teachers, who provide a consistent, systematic method of care, with emphasis on social-skills development – skills essential for success in later life. It is Mooseheart’s policy to admit qualified children who have a need. The Admissions Committee considers all applications of children in need. As a Mooseheart Booster, you help provide a home and education to children in need from across the continent. Your generosity, along with that of the men and women of the Moose fraternity, enables Mooseheart Child City & School to provide services to children who need, and deserve, the opportunity to live a happy and successful life.
