A letter from your chairperson
Gudrun Yngvadottir
The last few months have been a time of challenge in our world. However, wherever there is challenge, there is opportunity for Lions. Our ability to respond so quickly to the coronavirus (COVID-19) is a result of our Foundation, and funds raised through Campaign 100.

Handmade Wigs Turn Kids Battling Cancer into Superheroes

With a grant from LCIF’s partnership with Anthem, Lions create fun wigs, letting kids who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment feel like superheroes. Learn more about how Lions and LCIF help kids as they battle cancer.

A Dream Achieved
A dedicated Lion since 1983, John James was supposed to receive his Melvin Jones Fellowship (MJF) recognition from Chairperson Gudrun Yngvadottir and Past International President Barry Palmer at an MJF fundraising dinner. However, due to recent illness, a disappointed John James resigned to staying home and missing the big event. Then, there was a knock on his door.

Support Lions as They Protect Their Communities

In our communities, medical workers and vulnerable citizens are running out of resources to fight COVID-19. With support from LCIF, Lions are able to provide large amounts of equipment such as masks, protective gowns, and ventilators. Help support your fellow Lions!

Will You Share Your Story?
Storytelling is vital to the Lions’ mission. It makes people feel good and inspires them to serve. Right now, it seems our world is in need more than ever, and anyone can tell their story. As Lions and LCIF continue to serve communities during COVID-19, telling stories about the work Lions and LCIF accomplish together can keep that support alive.

Celebrating Success!

Lions, you surpassed your goal of serving 200 million people per year! You also identified and focused on the most pressing issues: diabetes, vision, hunger, environment, and childhood cancer. To make sure Lions are empowered to help those who need it most, LCIF launched the largest fundraising effort to date – Campaign 100: LCIF Empowering Service – with a goal of raising US$300 million.

Campaign 100: LCIF Empowering Service

Our world is in need, and caring Lions, supported by our global foundation, are changing it. Learn more about the power of Campaign 100 to support Lions as they transform the lives of friends, families, and community members, and then help create the change we want to see in the world.
