A Thank You

The Lions motto is We Serve!  And we do it because we want to.  Because we want to make a difference.   For no other reason. 

But our rewards are many.  

For the thank you from the mother who didn't know her child couldn't see....
For the homeless person who gets funding for glasses that he might not have otherwise been able to afford....
For helping to pay a young man's medical expenses after having surgery to save his sight....
For giving the gift of a bicycle to a young child who might otherwise have a grim Christmas....

Yes, our rewards are many.  

But take a look at the following sequence of pictures.  
This is my granddaughter.
We went to her preschool earlier this month and did vision screening.  
The kids made this "thank you" for us.

 The reward is in the excitement and joy on her face as she "presents" this to us on behalf of her class.

THIS is why we do what we do!
