Lions are 1.4 million strong… men and women… young and old. You will find us in more than 205 countries and geographical areas from here in Ohio to the hinterlands of Australia and Brazil to thriving urban centers like New York City and Milan. We speak dozens of languages and are individually unique in nature and customs.
We share a common spirit. Since our beginning in 1917, we have been united in a single cause: helping those less fortunate. We are tackling the tough problems like blindness and drug abuse as well as diabetes awareness — and finding help and training for the deaf, disabled, underprivileged and the elderly. In fact, whatever the community needs to make life better, we are there to help.
We are the youngest major social service organization, yet we have grown to be the world’s largest. We are succeeding because we have embraced all those committed to building a brighter future for the world and for themselves. And with a new generation of enlightened members, Lions clubs are working smarter and faster with greater commitment than ever before.
We are the Lions… and we serve.
