It is important to bring awareness to Kin Canada and the Telemiracle Foundation for their contributions and efforts across Canada. We encourage you to learn more about how they help and how you can get involved.
Comprised of the Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin Clubs, Kin Canada is the nation’s largest all-Canadian service club. Kin Canada headquarters is located in Cambridge, Ontario. The foundation of the club’s vision is fostering life-long friendships and personal development while serving the community. Kin Canada has over 6,000 members and has raised more than $1 billion for Canadian causes as well as disaster relief efforts beyond our borders. Kin Canada is a national partner with Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
The Kinsmen Foundation was established in 1971 in Saskatchewan to support residents with special needs where there were no other resources or funding. As the needs increased the Kinsmen Foundation created its first Telemiracle telethon in 1976. This telethon was aired on six local tv stations, required 1,000 volunteers, ran for 20 hours straight, and raised $1,200,000. Funds from this celebrated yearly event go to medical equipment, medical travel assistance, and local care homes for those with special needs.
