TeleMiracle is a 20-hour, annual telethon that is broadcast live in Saskatchewan. Despite only having a population around one million people, the generous residents of the province have helped us raise over $159 million since 1977.
Thank You Saskatchewan!

The money raised throughout the year and during the TeleMiracle telethon benefits the Kinsmen Foundation. They provide funding to the people of Saskatchewan requiring special needs equipment to maintain or improve their quality of life; as well as, travel assistance to those needing to leave their community, to access life-saving medical treatment. Funding is also provided to institutions and health foundations to purchase specialized, new or innovating equipment to improve health care.
Volunteering at TeleMiracle.
Most of the volunteers working at the show (including those who answer phones) are members of a Kinsmen, or Kinettes, or Kin club in Saskatchewan.
To become a member, please contact your nearest club. A list can be found on the District 3 website.
If you do not want to join a club, you have the option of leaving your name and phone number with a member of our office staff (see Contact Us page) and you may be called upon if there is something that prevents our out-of-town volunteers from participating.
