LCIF NOVEMBER 2020 UPDATE!

     During 2019 there were 409 disasters worldwide. In one 24 hour period from October 16th to October 17th 2020 there were 10 earthquakes registering from 4.5 to 5.3 around the world.

     So far this year the United States has been inflicted with 16 natural disasters costing at least $1,000,000,000 (one billion dollars) each!! This is the 6th consecutive year the United States has had at least 10 events costing over $1,000,000,000 (one billion dollars) each!!

     For the past 50+ years “OUR FOUNDATION” has provided over $1,000,000,000 (one billion dollars) in meeting humanitarian needs worldwide. The United States has been the recipient of many grants totaling nearly as much as we have donated. Montana has recived numerous grants and is currently seeking at least one grant at the next Board Meeting in January. If your club is considering a project contact me to see if we can schedule a grant application for consideration. We are allowed 2 active Matching Grants at one time, however there are other grants to consider.

     In the wake of droughts, wild fires, floods, earthquakes, monsoons, huricanes, tornadoes and illnesses the United Nations is warning that the number of people needing humanitarian aid may rise from 108 million people in 2018 to 168 million people by 2030. The needs of the world and OUR FOUNDATION will continue to increase into the forseeable future.

     Tuesday December 1, 2020 is “Giving Tuesday” in the United States. I am encouraging any Lion that donates to a charity this year to go to lcif.org/donate to make a one time donation or arrange an ongoing donation to the Lions Clubs International Foundation-“YOUR FOUNDATION”. Thank You!

Yours in Lionism,

PDG Lary Garrison, District 37 LCIF Chair
