I believe one continues to learn throughout their entire life. Through Lions Clubs International and LCIF, there are continuous sources of education. We learn from volunteer experiences, other cultures, and strategizing together on how to improve communities. I hope this newsletter is also a source of learning for you. Enrich your role as a Lion by reading through the stories and considering the opportunities presented. Maybe you will even discover a new interest.

Fighting Disease Through Collaborative Action
In 2019 alone, the Lions-Carter Center partnership impacted 15 million people through trachoma-related efforts. Kelly Callahan, director of the Trachoma Control Program at The Carter Center, writes about this incredible partnership and why collaboration works.
It takes just three steps to create your own fundraiser on Facebook. Start one in honor of a fellow Lion or for a special occasion, like your birthday. Personalize your fundraiser with photos and write why LCIF is your cause of choice. Then, Facebook does all the work. Donations made to your fundraiser are automatically sent to LCIF.
Donations to LCIF help Lions achieve more service impact than they could on their own or can fund large humanitarian projects not possible without the assistance of a grant. One important fact to know: 100 percent of donations go to fund LCIF grants and programs. To learn about recent grants made possible by donations, visit our website.
Our world is in need, and caring Lions, supported by our global foundation, are changing it for the better.
