“Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught; no blind man or woman unaided?

I appeal to you Lion, you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind.

Will you not constitute yourselves knights of the blind in this crusade against darkness?”
— Helen Keller, 1925 challenge to Lions Club members
