Remember LCIF on #GivingTuesday
Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the USA), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Did you know that the vast majority of LCIF’s grant funding is made possible by donations from Lions clubs and individual members worldwide? LCIF does not receive any portion of Lions membership dues. Did you also know that there are multiple ways to donate to LCIF?
Donate when you shop!
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support LCIF every time you shop online, at no cost to you. When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to LCIF.
Donate when you take photos!
For every photo you donate through Johnson & Johnson’s Donate a Photo app, Johnson & Johnson will donate US$1 to LCIF’s Sight for Kids program, up to US$40,000. Each photo you donate via the app (once every day through January 15, 2017) will help provide eye health education, vision screening and access to a professional eye exam to a child.
Donate when you exercise!
Now, you can walk or run to raise money for Sight for Kids wherever you are in the world. Simply download the Charity Miles app on your smartphone, select “Sight for Kids,” and take a walk! LCIF will receive a donation for every mile logged. Lions have been walking, running and cycling to raise money for Sight for Kids since our International Convention in June 2016.
Make your donation go further!
