Tomorrow begins the Sharing the Vision global service action campaign. During October, we encourage Lions everywhere to fight blindness through service activities that provide eye care to those in need, increase awareness about the importance of eye care and vision screenings, help people who are blind or have visual impairments, and more.
Examples of Sharing the Vision projects include:

The Lions Membership Satisfaction Guide is a valuable resource that helps Lions ensure their members feel welcome and comfortable. This involves defining membership satisfaction for your club, addressing membership issues and club culture, and making sure your club’s goals and objectives are clearly communicated.

How do you keep your Lions club healthy and vital?
The Nina Maria Foundation is a wonderful organization in Colombia that provides a safe, enriching home and environment for orphans. With the help of grants from LCIF, the orphanage recently opened several workshops that teach valuable skills to help the children follow their dreams toward brighter futures.
I had the pleasure of attending the inauguration of these workshops, which include a screen printing, sewing and computer facility. I even got a crash course in screen printing, and received a gift of the lovely handiwork the children sewed.
Thank you so much to the Lions in Colombia, and to the staff and children at the Nina Maria Foundation, for such an incredible welcome and pleasant tour of the orphanage. It warms my heart to see first-hand how Lions and LCIF are helping children across the globe.
