Social Media Workshop..............Click on illustration for details.
Websites, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat etc are all now important channels of communication which can deliver our messages and to a growing extent, are an important tool in fund-raising.

The forgotten refugee children
I believe that the initiative being undertaken here offers the best opportunity for effective action to support children in The Lebanon and Turkey, while at the same time putting rescue boats to use in the Aegean Sea.

One for Ireland
Following the presentation to Convention by Conor Clancy of 'One for Ireland', all Clubs in RoI are invited to participate in this fund-raising project which seeks to raise €1m for Youth Mental Health charities. Our principal involvement will be to visit participating retailers in advance of, and during the campaign, which runs from 28th April to 1st May, to ensure that promotional materials are in place and that staff are briefed. A detailed brief and a list of participating stores will be circulated closer to the date. In the meantime, Conor has asked Lions to: · Connect with One for Ireland on social media on Facebook and Twitter · Ask any retailers with whom they have a connection to be a part of the campaign by emailing conor@oneforireland.ie

 

Message in a Bottle

 

Message in a Bottle is an Emergency Information Scheme. It simply directs the emergency services to information stored in a plastic bottle which is kept in the fridge; vulnerable people or those with a medical condition can enter their details on the form inside the bottle. It will include a photograph, health details, emergency contact, doctor, whether there are pets that need looking after and much more which will assist the Emergency Services.  

As a minimum it will save the Emergency Services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication or allergies or not, it is a potential lifesaverand provides peace of mind to users and their friends and families.

The  bottles, message forms and service are free of charge to the public and are funded by the individual Lions Clubs.
