Eddie Worth, Director of Marketing for the Safe Surfin’ Foundation helped ID 30 kids with the EZ ID kit! The kids had a great time and the parents were happy to receive the pertinent information on their children, all burned to a CD, for fast dissemination to police in the case of a child going missing.
A huge “THANK YOU” to the Clifton Forge Women Of The Moose in Clifton Forge, VA for their generous donation to the Safe Surfin’ Foundation!

A Harrisville moose lodge committee works hard to protect its local police force.
Moose lodge members presented Harrisville, Pennsboro, and Ritchie County Police Departments with bullet-proof vests tonight.
Each vest is custom made for police officers to provide comfort and full movement.
Moose lodge committee members secured the vests for half of the price through the Safe Surfin’ foundation, an organization committed to protect against internet crime.
According to the lodge committee chairman, without the community, the project would have never been possible.
“There was a lot of people that put a lot of work into the event to make it happen,” said Jim Turner, chairman of the committee. “And when I asked the community for different donations and monetary donations from businesses and churches and civic organizations they were really great about stepping up to the plate.”
Although the Harrisville moose lodge has no plans to order more vests, police departments in West Virginia can use as many as they can get.
According to Turner, there are over 200,000 officers in this state that still do not have adequate bullet proof vests.
Dayton, Ohio K-9 Officers are working the beat much safer today thanks to the generosity of Women of the Moose, Dayton Chapter #9, the Dayton Lodge #73, Moose Legion Committee and some local businesses throughout the Dayton area.
The coordinator behind this project is Women of the Moose member, Anita Farish of Dayton.
Anita was happy to see that all the human officers had ballistic protection, but their K-9 counterparts did not. So, she set out on a fundraising mission to get these four-legged officers the protection they need and deserve: K-9s Zeta, Thor, Baron, Phantom and Raika, all valued members of the Dayton Police Department.
Anita arranged for a presentation ceremony at the Lodge so everyone could meet the recipients of these life saving vests. The local media was also invited to cover the event.
Safe Surfin’ salutes our law enforcement, two legs and four, and we also wish to thank Anita Farish for her hard work and dedication to the protection of these K-9 officers!
When it comes to the heroes behind the H.E.R.O. Child-Rescue Corps, at the head of the line are Mike Brown, Sheriff of Bedford County, Virginia and the dedicated members of Moose International. In 2013, Sheriff Brown’s Safe Surfin’ Foundation rounded up the Moose to make an incredibly generous donation of high-performance laptops to the HERO Corps, giving our program participants the weapons they need to hunt and catch predators and protect children. This year, Sheriff Brown, the Safe Surfin’ Foundation and the Moose are back again! They were with us on our first day, presenting the third HERO class with 24 field laptops and screens for their lab work. PROTECT and the HEROs could not be more grateful. We’ll have much more on the Sheriff and Moose International in the coming weeks.
