In 1925, Helen Keller attended the Lions Clubs International Convention and challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." Since that time, Lions have been tireless advocates for the blind and visually impaired.
Today we are 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members world-wide. Extending beyond our original mission, our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we help, we make friends — with children who need eyeglasses and with seniors who are hungry — all while working to make a difference in the lives of others.
