Campaign SightFirst II

Lions will not allow “nothing to be done.” True to their commitment to be “knights of the blind,” Lions have launched Campaign SightFirst II.

 

We have set out to raise at least $150 million to continue and expand the extraordinary work of SightFirst. Lions worldwide have been working to combat preventable blindness.

 

If nothing is done about preventable blindness, our global population (37 million) of the blind could double by the year 2020.

If you’re interested in volunteering, leading projects, networking and having fun – you can do all of this and more as a Lions club member. As a Lion, you’ll perform local volunteer work to improve your community – and communities around the world.

 

You can join a local club that meets in person. A cyber club that meets online. Or a special interest club based on your profession, a hobby or anything you care about. You can plan a local project to protect the environment. Recycle eyeglasses to help the working poor. Or bring clean water to a remote village. Whatever you choose, you’ll be sharing, caring and making a difference.
