ABOUT THE LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with nearly 1.35 million members in 46,000 clubs in 194 countries and geographic areas.
Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes. Founded in 1917, the association's motto is "We Serve." Service To Others
Worldwide, Lions clubs are recognized for their service to the blind and visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the 1925 Lions Clubs International Convention.
Today, Lions extend their commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts, as well as through their international Sight First Program, which works to eradicate blindness. Lions also collect and recycle eyeglasses for distribution in developing countries year-round and especially during May, which is Lions Recycle for Sight Month, and October, as a way to mark Lions World Sight Day, which is held the second Thursday of each October.
In addition, Lions make a strong commitment to young people through youth outreach programs. Lions also work to improve the environment, build homes for the disabled in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, support diabetes education, conduct hearing programs and, through their foundation, provide disaster relief around the world.
Based on a recent report of Lions clubs worldwide, it is estimated that each year Lions clubs donate approximately US$512 million and 64 million hours, which is equivalent to 31,000 people working full time for a year.
