About our new national television campaign
Produced and filmed by multi-award-winning agency, Good Eye Deer, the Lions Australia ‘More Than Sausages’ campaign aims to inspire viewers by showing the wide range of causes our volunteers are supporting in their communities.
The commercial is centred around the scene of a barbecue – a common fundraising activity for many Lions Clubs. But it is what happens after these barbecues that truly matters. From supporting the leaders of tomorrow through our youth programs, to rallying together in times of natural disaster, Lions (and their sausage sizzles) are making a huge difference in our communities.
The new campaign is particularly significant as Lions Clubs around the world celebrate 100 years of service, while Lions Australia marks 70 years since its first Club formed in Lismore, NSW.
