New content will continue to be added as we count down to 2017, so check back often for updates! (Currently available in English only. LCI official languages to be added later this year.)
Sharing the Vision Project Ideas
Participate in October’s Global Service Action Campaign by Sharing the Vision. As you look for potential sight service projects, find inspiration from clubs throughout the world. Via MyLCI, clubs have reported projects like pre-school vision screenings, arranging talks on low vision, providing a visually impaired child with an iPad to help with schoolwork, organizing a fishing tournament for blind members of the community, and printing and placing large print menus in local restaurants. Sharing the Vision projects reported through MyLCI will count toward the Centennial Service Challenge. How will your club help us serve 100 million people by 2017?
Donate to LCIF and Earn Centennial Recognition!
By donating to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), your club can play a part in reaching our Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 100 million people by December 2017and earn special Centennial recognition.
