The Global Impact segment in this month’s new Lions Quarterly video magazine focuses on how Lions are fighting childhood hunger around the world. In Canada, Lions deliver fruits and vegetable platters to schools so that students can enjoy a healthy snack and have the fuel needed to learn better. Lions in the Philippines also work with local schools to provide lunches to children in need, as well as teaching parents and students about the importance of nutrition. And in the U.S., Lions organized a backpack program that sent healthy foods home with kids over the weekend.
Watch the video above to learn more about how Lions are feeding children everywhere. The entire July Lions Quarterly is available for download on the Lions News Network. Share the video at your next Lions club meeting or event!
How does your Lions club feed children in your community?
The Centennial Service Challenge was announced at the 2014 Lions International Convention in Toronto — presenting Lions with the goal of serving 100 million people by December 2017. Is your club up to the challenge? Start planning your Global Service Action Campaign service activities, beginning in August with Engaging Our Youth.
Recognize the power of youth involvement! Serve children in need! Project ideas include:
For more information on the Centennial Service Challenge, such as how to report your service activities and track the number of people served, visit the Centennial Service Challenge page and read our FAQs.
I’m so excited and honored to be this year’s Lions Clubs International President!
We’re a family – a Lions Pride — and I’m hoping you will join me this year in working to Strengthen the Pride. There are so many areas in which we can strive to do better so that we can serve our communities better. Each new member helps our organization grow. Each life we touch through service makes us stronger and more dedicated.
Through partnerships, technology, creativity and so much more, Lions clubs are getting stronger every day. Visit my President’s Theme page on the LCI website for the tools and resources you need to help make your club stronger.
I’m looking forward to a great year, and I can’t wait to meet Lions across the globe to see how they’re Strengthening the Pride!
Your International President,

If you can dream it … you can do it!
Lions, thank you for following your dreams this year. Across the globe, you’ve achieved so many dreams — from providing children with books and food and sight services, to improving the health of people in need. You’ve empowered women and recruited new Lions. You’ve gathered your family and friends to show them what it means to be a Lion. And you’ve changed lives.
It has been an honor and inspiration to meet so many Lions who are making a difference in this world.
Keep your dream in your pocket as a reminder of what Lions can achieve when they work together. Thank you for a wonderful year!
