SHARE YOUR STORY WITH KLEF

 

Thank you for your support of the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation! Because of friends like YOU, our Foundation has been able to provide over 400,000 FREE vision screenings to children and adults throughout Kentucky over the past 20 years! To celebrate, we are in the process of creating a highlight video of some of our success stories over the years and we want your story! We are looking for supporters or benefactors to submit a video or audio recording of yourself, your Club or someone you know that has benefited from the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation.

 

What do we mean by benefited? Anyone who has had a positive experience with KLEF, our programs, our staff, our volunteers, our board members, etc. Whether you're a volunteer, a board member, a Lions Club as a group, someone who participated in a vision screening, someone who received assistance from our Patron or Holloran programs, someone whose child received a vision screening from our KidSight program, someone who called KLEF to request assistance with eyeglasses and was referred to a local Club for assistance, etc. If you have any of these experiences - WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

 

Video or audio clips can be recorded using a cell phone but should be recorded with good lighting (video only) and in a quiet area with no background noises. Video or audio clips should be no longer than 2 minutes long and be submitted via email to JenniferHunt@kylionseye.org. Please submit your video or audio recording by February 28, 2022 to ensure that your recording is included in the video. If you have any technical questions or need help - please email JenniferHunt@kylionseye.org or call 270-999-4887.
