Lions Centennial Service Challenge – Relieving the Hunger

The Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club recently participated in the Centennial Service Challenge – Relieving the Hunger campaign by distributing nutritious snacks to those less fortunate.

Lions distributed clementines – with lots of Vitamin C to help protect eyesight – and nutritious snack crackers. To celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year, the snacks were packaged in bright red bags for each person. The bright bags and tasty snacks created a festive atmosphere. Beyond just dropping off the food, Lions expressed their leonine community spirit by taking time to visit and chat with each person, brightening everyone’s day.

When at least two strong earthquakes shook Yunnan Province in China this summer, the GPAALC leapt into action.  The earthquakes and their aftershocks killed hundreds people and damaged or destroyed tens of thousands of homes in the region.  The Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club has donated $500 to assist the earthquake victims in rebuilding their lives and their communities.

GPAALC board members donate $1,000 to support children with Retinablastoma

The GPAALC recently assisted several children and their families who arrived from China to seek treatment for Retinablastoma at Wills Eye Hospital and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

The Lions set up a fundraising table by the firehouse on a busy Saturday afternoon in Chinatown, and over $1,000 was raised to help the children and their families, with GPAALC board members leading the way in donations.  After the event, Lioness Mabel Chen treated the children and their families to dim sum at her nearby Joy Tsin Lau Restaurant.

GPAALC and Lion Robert Support St. Baldrick’s

On March 16, Lion Robert Scheyder proudly stepped up to be one of the first heads to be shaved at the St. Baldrick’s Day Event at Fado Irish Pub in Philadelphia.  Right behind him in spirit (if not in line to get shaved) were the members of the Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club, where several board members contributed to raise over $500 for the cause.  

The generosity of the Lions helped Robert and his hair raise nearly $1,500 at the event, which exceeded its overall goal and raised $47,519 to support childhood cancer research.

Help protect a child’s sight

You can help protect a child’s sight – it’s as easy as taking a picture.
Sight for Kids logoThroughout October, Lions celebrate World Sight Day (October 10th) and the “Sharing the Vision” global service action campaign. This year’s World Sight Day theme is universal eye health and the importance of making a “pledge” to maintain your eye health and have a regular eye exam.
LCIF partner Johnson & Johnson is celebrating World Sight Day with Lions by promoting eye exams and raising money for our shared initiative, Sight for Kids. The Sight for Kids program was selected by Johnson & Johnson (J&J) as one of a select few charities to benefit through their free Donate a Photo mobile application.
Now through November 30th, 2013, you can help provide a vision screening and save a child’s sight simply by uploading a photo. For every photo donated via the app to Sight for Kids, J&J will donate $1 towards Sight for Kids screenings.*
Since 2002, Sight for Kids’ mission has been to remove barriers to eye care for children in the most underserved areas across Asia – providing eye exams, glasses and treatment. To date, Lions and Sight for Kids have screened the vision of nearly 18 million children.
Consider donating a photo each day for Sight for Kids to help Lions protect a child’s sight… It’s as easy as downloading the free mobile app and taking pictures!
How to Get Started
  1. Download the FREE “Donate a Photo” app for your Apple or Android device by searching for it in iTunes or Google Play/Android.
  2. Once downloaded, follow the easy, in-app steps to set up an account and profile.
  3. Choose LCIF’s cause: “One Photo helps protect a child’s sight… with Sight for Kids.”
  4. Take a picture – any photo will work but “selfies” and “eye selfies” are preferred! Or choose a photo from your device’s library or album.
The entire setup process should only take around two minutes.
Your photo will be displayed like this:
Donate a Photo!
Thank you for your support and for protecting children’s sight!
Photo Guidelines
Users can donate up to one photo a day, every day, to the Sight for Kids cause through November 30, 2013.  Any appropriate photo helps, but Lions are hoping to share photos of faces or eyes to raise awareness about the importance of accessible eye care and eye exams.  Are you planning a project or event for Sharing the Vision month and World Sight Day? Be sure to tag photos with the hashtags #lionsclubs and #eyepledge on Facebook and Twitter. We will share select photos through the Lions Clubs International official Facebook and Twitter pages.
The Donate a Photo app is available in the United States only. No matter where you live, be sure to get the word out about Lions Sight for Kids program and the importance of eye exams for our children. Photos shared are not used for any commercial purposes.
*Disclosure: You can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. For every photo donated to Sight for Kids, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. will donate $1 to that cause. You can donate photos to Sight for Kids until November 30, 2013 or until it reaches its goal of $30,000, whichever comes first. Sight for Kids will receive a minimum of $15,000.
