Kin Canada

National Partner

Kin Canada is an all-Canadian service organization with 438 clubs and over 6000 member across Canada. Kinsmen, Kinette, and Kin Clubs are dedicated to serving their communities’ greatest needs through service projects and fundraising for local and national programs. The roots of the organization’s involvement with the blood system run deep, dating back to the 1960s when some members of the Kinsmen started donating. In 2014, Kin Canada joined Partners for Life. Now, Kin clubs are engaged in awareness activities, blood donation, and support for organ and tissue donation. They’ve also designated March and October as “Give Life” months. In 2017, Kin Canada pledged 615 blood donations from its members and family and friends. They exceeded that goal by 164 per cent for a total of 1,010 units of blood. Their pledge for 2018 is 725 donations.
