United in Kindness and Diversity with International President, Dr. Jung-Yul Choi
Your safe service has preserved the health and safety of so many within your local community. The coronavirus pandemic has become the global health focus for the world, but many other health issues remain. And that’s where Lions can make a difference.
Diabetes affects nearly 10% of the world’s adult population—and so many more are undiagnosed. That is why diabetes has been one of our five global causes. This month, I ask that you unite with Lions around the world to raise awareness and educate people so we can be the difference in our communities.
Because every global cause has a solution that begins at home.
Regards, Dr. Jung-Yul Choi International President
World Diabetes Day
World Diabetes Day is on November 14, and this year, we’re asking Lions to continue serving safely by serving virtually. Beginning October 12, your club can participate in a variety of virtual activities to promote diabetes awareness, prevention and care.
Visit our World Diabetes Day page for activities and educational series that you and your club can participate in to make a difference in your community. And don’t forget to use the hashtag #LionsFightDiabetes to celebrate your service with us and Lions around the world.
Your service matters now more than ever. And our Serving Safely page has everything you need to keep serving and keep your community—and yourself—safe and healthy.
We’ve updated the Serving Safely page with new tools to help you continue innovating the way you serve in your community. You’ll also find blogs, social media resources and inspirational stories that can help you discover new ways your club can continue making a difference.
We’re always stronger when we work together. When you stay connected with your club, your community and your team here at Lions International, we all become a part of your incredible service. Here are three ways you can stay connected:
Tell your story – Maximize your social media by posting photos and videos of your club serving safely using the hashtag #WeServe. Or download our press release template to leverage your local media to help tell your story to the community.
Report your service – Bring attention to the great work you’re doing by reporting through MyLion or your regional reporting system. Remember to include any virtual meetings and activities, including World Diabetes Day virtual service.
Share our story – Let your community know about how Lions have continually served for more than a century by sharing our Lions Stay Connected video on your social media.
When we stay connected, we stay ready to serve together.
