Kin Canada’s National Day of KINdness, a National service project of Kin Canada, was created in 2013 as a way for members of Kin Canada across the country to connect directly with people in their communities in celebration of Founder Harold A. Rogers.

Founder Hal, as he is affectionately known, after returning to Hamilton, Ontario after serving in World War I, brought together a few of his friends and founded Kinsmen, a Canadian service club, which held its first meeting on February 20, 1920.  The Kinsmen, now known across Canada as Kin Canada, is made up of Kinsmen, Kinette, Kin and Kin Campus Clubs from across the country that devotes their service and interest to what Kin Canada calls “Serving our Community’s Greatest Need”.


The purpose of Kin Canada’s National Day of KINdness, which is scheduled annually for the closest weekend to the founding of Kin Canada, being February 20, 1920, is a day for members across Canada to celebrate Founder Hal and the legacy he has created nationwide by having them perform acts of KINdness within their communities. This day is simply to encourage Kin and your community to be a little kinder and spark a few smiles throughout the day.

In celebration of the 10th Annual Kin Canada’s National Day of KINdness, the Kinsmen Club of Medicine Hat placed 600 themed rubber ducks throughout our community in the hopes that they would be found by kids and “kids at heart”, thereby bringing a smile to the finder’s face and a take home reminder of how easy it is to be KINd and make a stranger smile.


If you are reading this explanation of Kin Canada’s National Day of KINdness you have likely found a LUCKY duck, thereby making you one of our 600 LUCKY ducks! When you look at this duck, remember that it symbolizes the simple act of being KINd daily.
