Protecting What You Love and Care About With Master Lock #MasterLockProtects

When I was a little girl (many moons ago) my mother always encouraged me to participate in any extra curricular actitivites that would pave the road to my future in a positive manner. One of these was being a Girl Scout. I never thought I would say this but I am proud to share that I was a Girl Scout for 12 years. I know, that’s a long time and now that I am older it seems even longer. I started as a Brownie at seven years old and ended my journey in high school with the highest achievement possible, the Gold Award. If there was one thing I took away from being a Girl Scout it had to be the ability to help people, near and far, no matter how young I was. I learned how to make a difference through volunteering, making care packages for our troops, donating stuffed animals to the children’s hospital, and learning valuable lessons with the help of organizations such as the American Red Cross. 

The American Red Cross always played an active role in preparing us to be leaders within our communities. I remember going camping for the first time and I had the opportunity to learn the importance of first-aid, CPR, wilderness safety, and even how to remove ticks! When the organization is not training Girl Scouts they are providing disaster relief, supporting families in need, hosting blood drives, and lending a helping hand to the community. As an adult I still carry an immense appreciation for the compassionate volunteers and employees that dedicate their time to protect what we cherish. I’ll never forget the fond memories they helped me create, just like the fairly embaressing one pictured below! 

Do you have precious memories & keepsakes like these that you would do anything to protect? With the help of Masterlock products you can be sure that these valuables and anything else of importance is secure at all times. Now that I am an adult I have a huge collection of photos and important documents that are close to my heart. Growing up I was always worried that these things would get lost or damaged along the way. Luckily my mother always assured me of their safety as they were all placed in a large lock box sealed with a Masterlock.

Master Lock is the world’s largest manufacturer of padlocks and related security products, providing innovative security solutions for home, automotive, campus, power sports, bike and storage security needs since 1921.

    That is an awesome picture!! I have more than a few of those embarrassing photos from my childhood. I use a Masterlock fireproof box to protect some of our important documents. It's great to see them supporting the Red Cross!

  2. says

    Haha – my mom probably has the EXACT same picture of me somewhere….only I looked like a little boy because she kept my hair short. Eeek.

    I have a fireproof box to keep photo CD's and a few valuables safe.

    I have one of their fireproof boxes in my storm cellar! I keep an extra copy of things like the deed, birth certificates, vehicle keys, and more in there, in case we were to ever lose the house in a tornado.

  4. says

    Love that photo. 🙂 I have so many photos that are so valuable to me! Those are the things I'd keep locked. (I do use MasterLock to keep big, tool-like items locked away!)

  5. says

    Love the photo! I was a Girl Scout from 5 years old until 13 years old — and it's all about the memories I made with such great friends.

  6. says

    I tweeted!! your brownie sash is so full 🙂

    there aren't pics of me as a kid, so while it's "embarrassing" I feel sad sometimes seeing others' pics

  7. says

    The Girls Scouts are such a wonderful organization! I would definitely love if my daughters got involved with them!

  8. says

    I love that you loved being a Girl Scout. I was a brownie and GS too, and my mom was the assistant troop leader in the Brownies. 🙂

  9. says

    I love the photo! You had way more patches than I did!! (That and my mom didn't know how to sew. We safety pinned mine on!!) bwhahaha!

  10. says

    i always say I'd grab our photo drive in case of emergency but what about what's not in that drive. I should get a bigger fireproof box for the photos that are not digital

  11. says

    I like your photo; and there is no need to be embarrassed; we all have ones like that in our homes. Master Lock does so many things to help keep people's prized possessions safe; everyone needs a system like that.

  12. says

    My husband and I keep saying we need to get a safe. Not only for anti-theft, but also for the storms, flooding etc that we deal with most years. We really need to stop talking and do something about it.

    This world is really getting more dangerous each day. Without the right knowledge and help, it can be easy for us to be a victim to malicious elements.
