In the special December photo edition of LION Magazine, we honor the Knights of the Blind and highlight some of the great work Lions are doing around the world for sight. Read the ways visually impaired people’s lives have changed (Knight Lights) thanks to Lions and learn about just a few of the creative and meaningful service projects (Serving Day and Knight) Lions are doing. Enjoy moving photos and an illustration (Planet Earth Lions Club) of Lions’ accomplishments for sight.

This month, Lions kick off the Relieving the Hunger Global Service Action Campaign. Through food drives, soup kitchens, holiday baskets and other feeding projects, Lions everywhere join together to feed their hungry neighbors. The video above shows the different ways in which Lions provide food for those in need, whether feeding victims of a disaster, giving homeless people a hot meal on a cold day, or supporting school breakfast programs.
How is your club participating in the Relieving the Hunger campaign?
Check out how Lions around the world are making headlines by serving their communities.
By working in collaborations with other organizations, Lions can make the most of existing resources to help have the greatest impact on their local and global communities. That’s why Lions have partnered with such organizations as Scholastic, USAID, Bookshare and more as a part of the Reading Action Program.
Be sure to join us for a special one-hour Family and Community Engagement webinar* on December 16 and 17, 2013, during which you can learn about our partnership with Scholastic under the Reading Action Program. Special guest presenter Jackie Harvey, Director of Community and District Wide Partnerships at Scholastic, will discuss how your club can work with schools, families and communities to ensure every child has an opportunity to reach their full potential and follow his or her dreams.

When I’m not attending Lions events and projects, I often have time to tour the beautiful cities around the world that I have the privilege of traveling to. Last week, I was in Hiroshima, the site of the atomic bombing during World War II. I had the pleasure of meeting the mayor of Hiroshima, pictured above, who is responsible for the Mayors for Peace Program.
Below are a few more images from my trip: the stunning view from our hotel room; the dome building at the Peace Park, which was one of the few building to remain standing after the bomb; and a school that was built by Australian troops two years after the war.
I’m currently back in Australia. Next stop: the ISAAME Forum in Kathmandu, Nepal!
