More than $1 Billion Raised!
Since our founding in 1920, Kin Canada clubs have donated more than $1 billion to Canadian causes, communities and individuals in need, as well as disaster relief efforts beyond our borders.
The call was heard and answered by extraordinary Canadians.
Responding to a radio appeal for milk for British children, founder Hal Rogers rallied Kin members across Canada to raise funds for the purchase of powdered milk.
The goal for the first year was to raise enough money to purchase 1 million quarts; within 9 months, Kinsmen and Kinettes supplied more than 3 million quarts!
By the end of the Milk for Britain campaign, the Kin family raised close to $3 million and sent 50 million quarts of milk to Britain. Rogers was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1948 to recognize his efforts as the Chairman of Kinsmen's Milk for Britain wartime project.
Founder Hal Rogers
The project started with the club buying gifts for children of families that needed the help of the community to ensure that their kids had a gift from Santa.
The spirit of the project has changed very little since starting in December 1969. Today our club supports, with generous donations of gifts and funds from individuals and community groups, more than 150 children each Christmas!
This year, as in the past six years, 105.9 Seaside FM, will be our main voice by reaching out to listeners requesting support in helping us fill our list of gifts for the children.
There are a number of companies whose employees get names from us and generously purchase gifts for the kids.
If anyone or any group who would like to support our Christmas Miracle Project, PLEASE contact us at 50 Caledonia Rd., Dartmouth.
Keith Freeman and Rod Dickson are the Co-Chairmen of the Kinsmen Christmas Miracle Project this year.
