Day of Kindness Flamingo Flocks

Flock of plastic flamingos

Watch for flamingos around Brandon in the week of Feb. 14-19, 2022.

To celebrate Kin Canada’s Day of KINdness (Saturday, Feb. 19th, 2022), the Kinsmen Club of Brandon will be setting up flocks of bright pink flamingos at City Hall, the police station, the fire hall, selected long-term care facilities, and the hospital.

The flamingos bring a welcome pop of colour to a wintry white landscape, and they are meant as a “Thank you” to Brandon’s first responders and other people who have been hard at work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The flocks are also available to celebrate your special day! For more information on how to “flock” a friend for their birthday, graduation, retirement, or just because, please email

National Day of KINdness – What We Take For Granted

Kinsmen Club of Brandon members assembled 50 mens hygiene kits that will go to Samaritan House for those in need. These are things that most of us take for granted having in our bathrooms or homes. The value of a clean and dry pair of socks can be tremendous.

What We Take For Granted

The Kinsmen Club of Brandon donated more men’s hygiene kits to Samaritan House on December 18, 2018. Staff at Samaritan House were very receptive to the donation and assured us the kits are needed this holiday season. Plans are underway for additional “What We Take For Granted” donations over the coming months.
