It’s Rocker Time!
Have you gotten your Rockers ready???
February is the month of Rocking Chairs in the Moose Fraternity. Every lodge and chapter is gearing up to sell their rockers for the Mooseheart/Moosehaven Endowment Fund !
For a small donation, you can be a part of a massive fundraising campaign to benefit Moose Charities. Many lodges and chapters compete in a friendly challenge of who can do better at raising money. Others just go straight out of the box to raise the money. The question is do our members know why we are selling rocking chairs? Do they know what the endowment fund is? Why is it so important?
Every once in a while, we have to take a step back and educate not only ourselves but our members as well. Moose Charities primary goal is to provide the resources needed to support and maintain Mooseheart and Moosehaven. Moose Charities was founded in 1994 and was approved for operation in 2000 as a registered 501(c)(3) charitable corporation. Moose Charities is thought of as the non-profit, fundraising arm of Moose International. Moose Charities secures funding from Moose Members and friends through periodic direct mailings , company match gifting programs, tribute contributions and other giving opportunities.
Twice yearly, Moose Charities holds a fraternal fundraiser. The first in February is the Rocking Chairs and the second is in October with the Cradles. Simply selling a slip of paper with a rocking chair on it and displaying in your lodge home is very basic. Let’s take the time to educate our fellow members a little—they be more inclined to purchase more!
(In Waldport Moose Lodge, the Rocking Chair Slip are easily purchased from either the bartender, , the cashiers during dinner nights, or any designated officer/member of the lodge! )
