Diabetes Awareness in November

Author: Leave A Comment

November is Lions Diabetes Awareness Month! The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 371 million people worldwide live with diabetes, and that number is expected to grow to 552 million by 2030. In November, we encourage Lions everywhere to join the fight against diabetes — planning projects and events that help increase awareness of this deadly, debilitating disease and that educate community members on how to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.

Project ideas for Diabetes Awareness Month include:

  • Organize a Strides event, such as walking, running, cycling or dancing, that promotes healthy exercise.
  • Partner with a local healthcare provider to organize diabetes and vision screenings to the public.
  • Sponsor a child in need to attend a diabetes camp.
  • Participate in World Diabetes Day events on November 14.
  • Organize a healthy cooking demonstration.

What diabetes awareness activities is your Lions club planning for next month?

Palmer’s Blog: World Sight Day Recap

Author: 4 Comments

Last week, I celebrated World Sight Day in Mossman, Australia. As this year’s Lions World Sight Day focused on community vision screenings, I joined Australia Lions in providing vision screenings and eye health education for children, students and adults. Vision screenings are an important first step to preventing and treating eye disease.

It always gives me great joy to see how Lions in Australia and around the world work hard to lead the fight against blindness — not just on World Sight Day, but every single day.

Just Ask Men AND Women to Join!

Author: Leave A Comment

Did you know that women are the fastest growing group of members in LCI? Women now represent 25% of Lions club members worldwide, and more women are looking for an opportunity to serve. According to a comprehensive study conducted by LCI, 58% of those who responded positively to the importance of service and their likelihood of volunteering were women.

As you invite new members to join your club, keep in mind that men and women make great members.  Women can bring fresh ideas, new skills, and more hands for service to your club. The Family Membership Program is great way to involve women and give families a special discount on international dues.

Women can play an important role in expanding your membership and meeting the growing service challenges in a world that needs Lions more than ever.
