Measles is No Match for Lions Clubs International Foundation

Dear Lions,

Happiness is seeing healthy children run and play and go to school. Unfortunately, in areas where measles is prevalent, some children have those simple pleasures taken away. Nearly 400 people die from measles every day, most of them children. Survivors can be left with life-altering complications including permanent hearing loss, blindness, and brain damage. This doesn’t have to happen. Measles is a preventable disease, which is one reason why Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is supporting measles initiatives. One measles vaccination costs about US$1. I’ve seen Lions pull together and accomplish great things, so I know that we can eliminate measles by donating to the cause and volunteering in local measles campaigns. Let’s see what we can do to fight measles and give all children a healthy start to life! Consider donating to LCIF’s measles initiative, One Shot, One Life.

Lions and LCIF Work Together to Fight Measles
As many Lions know, LCIF has committed to raising US$30 million dollars by the end of 2017, which will go to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, an organization that will match LCIF’s measles contribution dollar-for-dollar. Meanwhile, Lions are using LCIF grants to get measles and rubella vaccinations to areas that need it the most. Through organized campaigns, Lions are helping to vaccinate children at no cost to their family. Learn how Lions and LCIF are fighting measles by visiting our blog. Help us with the vaccination of 114 million children; donate today!

Lions Quest Makes Its Way to Alaska, USA
Anchorage, Alaska, home to many of the USA’s most diverse neighborhoods, is now implementing Lions Quest, LCIF’s social and emotional learning program, into their students’ curriculum. In late September, the Anchorage School District began implementation of Lions Quest Skills for Adolescence by training their educators. Lion Walt Hays, the local project administrator, described its positive introduction, stating, “During the recent Lions Quest training, our middle school teachers were impressed by the comprehensive content, the ‘teachability’ of the curriculum, and how it might be adapted to a variety of settings and needs.” It sounds like Anchorage is off to a great start!
