Five cents -- set aside from the change you pour into your pocket or purse in the
morning. Five more cents -- set aside from the change you empty from your pocket or
purse in the evening. Just that: a nickel in the morning, a nickel in the evening,
set aside and sent to Moose Charities, for the kids of Mooseheart and the seniors
That's the new "GIMME FIVE" program -- it's really nothing more than that.
But it's also nothing less than this: If anything close to the entire membership
of the Loyal Order of Moose and Women of the Moose were to do just that much . . .
every day . . . for five years . . . it could ensure the financial future of Mooseheart
Child City & School in Illinois, and of our Moosehaven retirement community in Florida
-- without having to keep coming to Moose members every year to ask for more.
How can this be? Remember the wisdom of our Enrollment Ritual: "A burden heavy to
one is borne lightly by many." Then, do the math:
We honestly believe that very, very few of our nearly 1.3 million Moose men and
women would find it a hardship to set aside a nickel in the morning, and a nickel
at night, for Mooseheart and Moosehaven. But let's be conservative and say that only
1 million can or will do so. For each of those caring members, then:
Five cents in the morning, five cents in the evening is ten cents a day -- or $36.50 a year.
That amount multiplied by 1 million members . . .is $36.5 million per year.
After five years, by the end of 2012, that could be $182.5 million --before
accumulating investment interest is added in.
All from five cents in the morning, and five cents in the evening.
It's that simple -- but participating in "Gimme Five" can be even simpler: Instead
of trying to remember to physically set aside a nickel in the morning and a nickel in
the evening from now through 2012, you can...
-- Mail Moose Charities a check for your annual "Gimme Five" contribution of $36.50,
or all five years at once for $182.50, to Moose Charities, 155 S. International Dr.,

If EVERY Moose participates in the Gimme Five program, we can reach a goal for
which our fraternity has struggled for more than 90 years -- financial security for
Mooseheart and Moosehaven. We have expressed our pride in these two great Moose
humanitarian creations for decades -- and our members have told us, loudly and
clearly, that they want to keep these two campuses healthy and operating well into
Well, the GIMME FIVE program can make that happen -- but only if we ALL participate!
Let's make it happen -- together!
