Daily Herald report

Not only is Bears kicker Robbie Gould good as "Gould," he's good on his word too.

A year ago, Gould took Mooseheart's elementary and middle school students on a Christmas shopping trip to the St. Charles Super Target so they could purchase a gift for a relative. He said then that if scheduling worked out, he'd like to host a similar event in 2012.

That Christmas wish for Mooseheart's children came true Monday at the store on East Main Street.

"I think, in the brief time he was able to spend with the children last year helping them pick out a gift for their grandma or their siblings, it really made an impact him," Mooseheart Executive Director Scott Hart said. "I think it made an impact on (Gould) too. For him to remember the Mooseheart children and say, 'This was not only a great experience for me but also a chance for me to make a difference in a child's life' says something."

The shopping trip is sponsored by Gould's charity The Goulden Touch. Children receive a set amount and can purchase any gift they want in the store with that money. The children use the money to provide gifts for relatives that they might not otherwise have been able to give.
