Who are the Lions?

Lions International was founded in 1919. The Lions were just a social club until 1925, when Hellen Keller (the famous blind and deaf spokesperson), appeared at one of their meetings. She laid down a challenge for the Lions to become the "Knights of the Blind in the crusade against darkness." From this challenge, the Lions established the White Cane as a symbol of independence for blind people; founded some of the first Leader Dog Schools in the world; and established the majority of the world's eye banks.

From this humble start, the Lions have grown to over 1,400,000 members, the largest service organization in the world!
