The Latest from Social Media and the Web Featured Digital Club Chapman University Orange, California These Campus Lions have a lot of fun, and it shows on their Facebook page. After chartering last year, the Lions hit the ground running with recruiting and service events (such as the sight clinic pictured). The Lions’ enthusiasm and presence on campus come through in their many photo albums, and their Facebook timeline documents the pride they take in being Lions, the camaraderie they feel as friends and the value they take from giving back. A Powerful Piece of Plastic The Lions of Virginia in District 24-D have created a special tool for hospital patients with low vision: a plastic card with a 5X magnifying lens. The size of a credit card, it was the idea of Lion Timothy Marinelli, who had a heart attack and was rushed to a nearby hospital. Because he didn’t have his eyeglasses, he was unable to sign important medical documents. He has since recovered, and the Lions of Virginia distributed more than 2,000 magnifiers to emergency rooms in the region. Each one bears a QR code that, when scanned, takes readers to the Lions of Virginia website.

Smile and Snap a Selfie SMiLE (Social Media including Lions Everywhere), an initiative by a team of Lions aiming to gather and centralize social media information and support Lions clubs in their social media efforts, wants Lions to have some “selfie” fun. Take a photo of yourself, along with some Lions friends if you like, during a club project or event and post it to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #lionsclubselfie. Be creative and join this worldwide effort—the only requirement is to include a Lions logo in the photo. Find out more at lionssmile.org/lionsclubselfies. Want to get social?
