Kin Canada Causes
Canadian Blood Services
Canadian Blood Services is the national, not-for-profit, healthcare organization that manages Canada’s blood supply in all provinces and territories outside of Québec. They also administer the OneMatch Stem Cell program and Marrow Network & the National Public Cord Blood Bank.
Partnering with CBS helps to fulfill a huge national need and complements our relationship with Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Fifty-two percent of Canadians say they or a family member have needed blood. Someone with leukemia can need up to 8 donors worth of blood a week. Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin Clubs serve the community’s greatest need. Donating blood is a nation-wide need that touches most Canadians in their lifetime. More than 80,000 first-time blood donors are needed this year to meet hospital demand. https://www.blood.ca/
Kin Canada is a proud national partner of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Each year Kinsmen and Kinettes host a variety of fundraising and awareness-building activities in support of the battle against cystic fibrosis. Since 1964, Kin members have raised more than $45 million for cystic fibrosis research and patient care.
When Kinsmen and Kinettes first joined the fight against CF in 1964, children with the disease were not expected to live past the age of four. But today, children and young adults with cystic fibrosis are often living into their mid-50s and beyond. An extra year of life for a CF child has been earned for almost every year of Kin support. Cystic Fibrosis Canada could never have come so far, so fast, without the continued support of Kin. https://www.cysticfibrosis.ca/
Organ & Tissue Donor Awareness
Promoting organ donation awareness was the first national public awareness project of Kin Canada. Established in 2001, the Kin Organ Donation Awareness Campaign (Kin-ODAC) honoured Andrew Hatfield, a St. John’s East Kin Kid with a congenital heart disease who died waiting for a heart transplant. Andrew dreamed of helping other transplant hopefuls by raising awareness about the importance of organ donation. Because of Andrew, Kin have been raising awareness in communities across Canada so that, one day, no one will have to die waiting for an organ.
In 2016/17, tissue donation awareness was added to the campaign and the program is now recognized as the Kin Organ and Tissue Awareness Campaign. While the name of the campaign has changed, Andrew Hatfield and the impact of the Kin-ODAC are not forgotten.
Organ and tissue donation awareness is a natural extension of our partnerships with Cystic Fibrosis Canada and Canadian Blood Services. This is because most people with Cystic Fibrosis eventually need a lung transplant in order to live with the disease. Canadian Blood Services is an integral part of the donation and transplantation system. https://myhealth.alberta.ca/Pages/OTDRHome.aspx
Post-secondary education is expensive. Let us help!
Kin Canada Bursaries, a program of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund (HREF), awarded 35 deserving students with a $1,000 bursary for their 2018-19 school year. Successful applicants were chosen based on their community and school involvement, knowledge of Kin Canada and financial need. Since its inception in 1994, $1,019,000 has been awarded to 1019 students across Canada. The amount disbursed in any one year depends on the balance of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund and its governing laws.
Kin Canada Clubs play a vital role in the Kin Canada Bursaries program. They make donations to grow the fund, which affects how many bursaries are awarded each year. For more information on how to apply or donate visit the Kin Canada Bursaries Page. https://www.kincanada.ca/bursaries
