Follow Your Dream Children’s Video Project

Author: Leave A Comment

Literacy and education play a huge role in children’s ability to follow their dreams. Yet 61 million primary school age children around the world are not able to obtain an education. That’s why Lions everywhere are so dedicated to increasing global literacy.

The Follow Your Dream Children’s Video Project focuses on the importance of child literacy by asking children about their own dreams and thoughts on education.

You can participate by taking a two-minute (max) video of a child and asking him or her the following questions:

  • What is your dream for the future?
  • What do you want to be when you grow up?
  • Why is education important to you?

Then, upload your video to YouTube and send the link, along with the Child Video Authorization Form, to programs@lionsclubs.org. Your video may be featured in a special Lions Clubs YouTube playlist and shared through our social media channels.

For more detailed guidelines, along with the authorization form, download the Follow Your Dream Children’s Video PDF.

Palmer’s Blog: Follow Me on Social Media

Author: Leave A Comment

One of the the things I love about the power of social media is how it allows me to connect with Lions worldwide every day! Whether I’m at a board meeting in Australia or visiting the site of next year’s convention in Toronto, I’m always chatting with Lions from across the globe to tell them what I’m up to and encourage them to follow their dreams.

Follow me on Facebook and Twitter to join the conversation, and to see photos of my travels visiting Lions everywhere.

And if you haven’t already, be sure to create a Facebook and Twitter page for your Lions club. Social media is a wonderful way to keep your members updated and spread the Lions message across the community.

Extend Your Membership Month!

Author: Leave A Comment

The October Membership Growth Month may be ending soon, but inviting new members is a year-round process. New members help ensure continued growth and success, and they increase your club’s ability to provide valuable service to your community.

It’s the responsibility of all Lions to invite new members, but your club membership chairperson can play an important role in your ongoing membership efforts. Your membership chairperson can help your club effectively recruit new members and increase the membership satisfaction of all members, whether new or seasoned.

Make sure your chairperson has a copy of the new Club Membership Chairperson Guide so your club can make every month a membership month!
