Happy Thanksgiving Long Weekend!

Here at the Kinsmen Foundation, we have many things to be thankful for.

We are very thankful for all the people in Saskatchewan who make what we do possible.

We are extremely grateful for our donors. Without you, we would not be able to continue “Helping People Every Day”. We thank you and our funding recipients thank you too!

A huge debt of gratitude is owed to our TeleMiracle 45 committee and hundreds of volunteers (Kin, Production, Saskatchewan Talent, the various fund raisers, etc.) who selflessly give of their time and energy to plan, organize, put on and/or contribute to TeleMiracle each year, as well as those who sit on the Kinsmen Foundation Board to make the difficult decisions on whose applications will get funding. From the highest highs to the lowest lows and everything in between, our volunteers get through all of it with joy and heart.

Many, many thanks go out to our TeleMiracle National Cast and other members of the production crew, who contribute their expertise (at a significant discount) in order to produce a professional, broadcast-quality show.

A special shout out to our Producers for their exciting re-imagining of TeleMiracle, which makes it possible to have a telethon during this pandemic, while maintaining the spirit of the event we’ve loved for over forty years. (Pssst. Be sure to tune in to watch their vision get unveiled, on February 27 & 28, 2021!)

And last, but not least, we want to express our sincere appreciation for the six people who staff our office. They provide support to and link together all the various parts of this organization. They frequently go above and beyond, work mostly behind the scenes, but their contributions to this organization don’t go unnoticed.

Thankfully, the number of COVID-19 cases in Saskatchewan has been relatively low and by working together, we can keep it that way.

THANK YOU to all the front-line workers, essential workers, support staff, and everyone else who works with the public, for sacrificing time with your family and putting yourself in harm’s way to take care of the rest of us.

TeleMiracle has proven year after year after year that this province can come together to accomplish incredible things. That spirit of community is what’s going to get us through this pandemic.

We hope you get to enjoy this long weekend with your loved ones. Please stay safe and healthy.

On this Thanksgiving long weekend, we give thanks that we live in a province capable of making miracles!
