Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (PotashCorp) today helped Kinsmen Telemiracle make a miracle with a $250,000 matching gift donation to the Kinsmen Foundation during its annual 20-hour telethon this weekend. The matching gift challenge, and cheque presentation, was made live on-air in the final hours of the telecast.
"Saskatchewan’s Kinsmen and Kinettes, through the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation, have been making miracles happen for 35 years now," said PotashCorp President & CEO Bill Doyle. "We hope our challenge motivated others to go to the phones, pledge support, and help the Foundation improve quality of life for hundreds of people across the Saskatchewan."
PotashCorp matched each dollar pledged to Telemiracle from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. – helping to raise $500,000 of the telethon’s total. In addition, a team of PotashCorp representatives was on hand to answer phones and take pledges from donors across the province.
“One of PotashCorp’s goals is to improve quality of life in communities where we operate,” explained Rhonda Speiss, Manager of Corporate Philanthropy. “Telemiracle’s focus on helping Saskatchewan people with special needs, and those who require access to medical treatment, was a perfect fit.”
