Lions 24D - Zone D

From LCI

With 28 months left and 12M people served through vision projects, we are at the halfway point of the Centennial Service Challenge - congratulations! We are confident that Lions will achieve the goal of serving 25M people through vision projects by June 30 th, 2018, but only if everyone reports their projects to MyLCI. To ensure that we reach our goal, please see the examples below for tips on accurate reporting in MyLCI.

Tip 1: Screenings: When Lions conduct screening activities, it is important to report thetotal number of people screened because everyone benefitted in some way, even if a referral was not necessary. For example, if 100 people were screened, all 100 should be reported.

Tip 2: Lions clinics/foundations: Lions clinics and foundations offer vital eye care services on an ongoing basis. Remember to report the number served each month. For example, a large clinic that serves 3,000 people in the month of March should report all 3,000 people.

Tip 3: LCIF funded projects: When Lions receive LCIF funding to implement sight-related projects, the number of people served each month through these projects should also be reported in MyLCI. In addition, Lions should continue to submit their detailed progress reports to LCIF staff.

Please share these tips with your clubs and encourage them to increase their reporting to MyLCI. Together, we can reach our Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 25 million through vision projects by June 30th, 2018.

If you have any questions, please write [email protected].

Thank you..

Here is an email I recently received. (minus last names)

Dear Lions Club District 24D,

I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the vision screening you provided to my kindergartener, Lavinia ******** at Carrollton Elementary on November 5, 2015. You detected that she has a rather sever astigmatism in both eyes and that she is far-sighted. Neither her teacher nor her family had noticed any signs that she might have impaired vision. It was quite shocking to look through her lenses, observing the strength of her prescription. She may have gone several more years with her poor vision had you not generously provided her with your exam.

Thank you for giving my child the opportunity to see this beautiful world.

Warmest regards,
Lora *********

Our club recently helped a woman who could not afford glasses. We sent her to Lens Crafters as usual and planned to pick up the bill. They could not fit her because she had a rare condition and needed specially made (aka super-expensive) glasses. We sent her to a specialist who did the work for free. Our local charity foundation was able to pay the hundreds of dollars required to get this woman glasses. It's what we do.

General information

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 SightFirst Program and Lions World Sight Day, a global partnership of United Nations agencies, eye care and philanthropic organizations and health professionals, held the second Thursday of each October to increase awareness of the need 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. 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, 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 $506 million and 71 million hours, which is equivalent to 34,000 people working full time for a year.
