Together we can with International President, Brian Sheehan
Growing up in small-town Bird Island, Minnesota, working together is something you learned early. Any time anyone needed help, everybody rolled up their sleeves and got to work. That’s why I love being a Lion. Because our home is wherever we serve. And we know that “Together We Can” make our homes, our communities and our world a better place for everyone. And best of all? We get to do it every day.
All over the world, in big cities and small towns everywhere, Lions are doing great things, just like we’ve done for more than a hundred years. We’ve helped millions of people, and we’re going to help millions more this year by working as a team, thinking outside the box and serving like never before. And we’re going to have a lot of fun doing it.
It is an incredible honor to serve as your international president. Let’s show the world how together we can accomplish big things.
Make a great day, Brian Sheehan International President

Kindness Without Borders
The war in Ukraine has created one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our time, and your response has been inspiring. Lions around the world have generously donated, gathered food and medical supplies, and even opened their own homes to help families find safety and security during this unimaginable time.
Visit our Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine page to watch our service series to meet some of the families that have been forced to flee and see how Lions in Europe and around the world are uniting to help.
