  • What Does Helping Others Mean to You?

    The TOS wants to know “What does helping others mean to you?” Not your definition, but why do you help others? What makes you volunteer? How has it changed your life?

    We are hoping to collect videos of people answering these questions. But if you feel shy about being on a video (camera phones are great and easy…hint hint!), we welcome you to send us an audio recording of what helping others means to you. If you send us either a video or audio, please also send us permission to use it as part of our outreach. We are intending to put together various clips as an introduction to the TOS to be used in lodges and study groups.

    We thank you in advance!

Love in the Time of Corona

It will be interesting to see what stories come out of this time in history. A worldwide pandemic was something once written about in the annals of history, but not experienced in the lifetime of many of us. The thought of anything so “inconsequential” as a virus killing over 100,000 people (as of right now) belonged to writers of science fiction and suspense. Unbelievable to many of us, we assumed we are too intelligent a species not to be able to deal with it; after all, viruses have come and gone. We are still here and scientists have always found a solution. Read more about Love in the Time of Corona

COVID-19 AND A CALL TO ACTION

Providing Meals to Emergency Workers

The COVID-19 pandemic has confined many of us to our homes, but emergency rooms are filled with people suffering from this disease. While staying home is crucial to decrease the spread of this virus, the TOS has found another way to help. To aid the emergency room workers and the local restaurants, the TOS is implementing a new program to provide vegetarian meals from local restaurants to the emergency rooms. Deliveries will be handled by the restaurants themselves. We have already contacted our first hospital, Northwestern Memorial Hospital in downtown Chicago, and they were overwhelmed that such a service was offered. Our goal is to make this a national program. But WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are looking for people who can coordinate with a hospital and a restaurant in their local area. It is just a matter of finding a hospital in need of such a service and a local restaurant in the same area willing to help. All of this can be done from your own home!

20/20 Vision on Our Earth

Have you ever wondered where all your garbage goes or whether what you put in your recycling bin actually is recycled? Perhaps it runs through your mind, but the thought quickly gets pushed aside by more “pressing” matters. We often think that once we dispose of something it is no longer our concern. The reality of waste only hits us when we see plastic islands in the ocean the size of Texas or watch the tragedy of dolphins and whales beached on our seashore. The image possibly moves us to stop using plastic and while such actions are beneficial, it is important that we try to do more. Read more about 20/20 Vision on Our Earth
