Listen To LION Magazine On The Phone

NFBNFB-NEWSLINE is happy to announce the addition of LION Magazine, the publication of the Lions Clubs International, to our list of magazines. LION Magazine can be read aloud by calling 1-888-882-1629 (Toll free phone number for National Federation of the Blind Newsline). The temporary codes are: 000999 and 9999. Find LION Magazine by pressing “7” off the main menu for “Magazines,” then press “6” for “General Interest.” When you pick an article or TV listing you want to hear, enter it and that is where you can change the voice settings. #8 changes the voices. There is a pleasant man’s voice and the same with a woman’s voice. #7 slows the voice down and #9 makes it faster. Just follow the prompts on the rest.

LION Magazine, published eleven times a year (July and August are combined), represents the services rendered by Lions Clubs International throughout the United States and the world. In over two hundred countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning, and supporting. Because Lions Clubs are local, they serve the unique needs of the communities they live in. Lions Clubs support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling, provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight, and raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.

Lions Clubs believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.

Lions empower the next generation. Whether it’s providing youth volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in a Leo club or sharing a message of peace through the Peace Poster contest, Lions Clubs’ youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.

Lions Clubs serve local communities and protect the planet. From performing hands-on community work and service projects to providing emergency assistance, Lions Clubs’ community and environment programs improve communities and protect the environment.

LION Magazine promotes the service of the Lions Clubs around the world and their philosophy of “We Serve.” It is full of articles about successful service programs and the people who help achieve these goals.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
