Telemiracle is a 20-hour telethon that has raised over $116,000,000 over 41 years, more money per capita than any other telethon in
the world. All the money raised at Telemiracle is spent in Saskatchewan helping the people of Saskatchewan.
The telethon is a highly anticipated event each spring and features a host of national performers and Saskatchewan talent. For visiting celebrities, it’s an opportunity to participate in an event that really does make miracles happen. For local performers, it’s a chance to support their friends, family and neighbours, and to perform on a big stage to the delight of a viewing audience that spans the province.
The money raised at Telemiracle provides resources to residents with specialized needs for medical assistance and equipment, such as:
Who We Help
Thanks to your donations to Telemiracle, the Kinsmen Foundation has the opportunity to improve the quality of life and the independence of hundreds of people every year. Saskatchewan residents are able to access special needs equipment and medical assistance that wouldn't otherwise be attainable.
Innovations like ceiling track sysytems, portable lifts and ramps, funded by the Kinsmen Foundation, are making it possible for people to live at home and still receive the care they need. And with equipment like specialized wheelchairs, electric scooters, vehicle conversions and communications devices, people are achieving a level of independence they didn't think possible.
When people can't access the level of care they need at home, they must often travel to health care facilities in other parts of the province or country. And while the medical procedures are covered by health care, the patients and their families must pay for their own travel, meals and accommodations. By easing the financial strain, the Kinsmen Foundation allows families to focus on what only they can provide - love and care.
Across our province, loving care homes have been established with a family atmosphere to provide comfort and care to people with special needs. The Kinsmen Foundation provides funding for things like ceiling track systems, specialized tubs, lifts, specialty beds and personal care equipment to make those homes even better suited to provide quality care.
