This time of year, many of us gather with our loved ones to enjoy the comforts of friends, family, and traditions. During all of the celebrations, I cannot help but think of those who are less fortunate. Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has accomplished great things, but there is still so much to be done. There are still people in need of support, care, or even the basic necessities of life, such as shelter, food, and water.
As you consider giving gifts for the holidays, please also consider giving LCIF the gift of a donation. Any amount helps and goes toward a great cause. Donating in the name of a fellow Lion is also a great gift idea. It can even be done last-minute!
end of the year is also a great time for reflection. Lions, you have many reasons to be proud. I know that Lions and LCIF, together, have made a tremendous impact this year, including surpassing US$1 billion in grants awarded since LCIF’s founding in 1968. Take some time to think about what your club has accomplished this calendar year and congratulate yourselves on a job well done.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
