Kindness comes naturally to Lions

The Kindness Matters Service Award (KMSA) is given annually to a handful of Lions and Leo clubs for performing an outstanding service project in one of the global cause areas.

Intended to recognize and encourage innovative and creative service projects that leave positive impacts on their communities, KMSA recipients are clubs who have shown just how meaningful a Lion or Leo club can be.
