People's Choice Winners
We let you decide which two nominee finalists would receive $5,000 each and we received over 7,200 votes. Thank you, People’s Choice voters!
In Saskatchewan we have this great way of coming together when we need to. From Fond-du-lac to Coronach, COVID -19 has inspired stories of kindness across our province. People have lifted each other up and created moments that connect us. We believe in celebrating and re-investing in this kindness that’s improving the well-being of our communities and people, so that’s what we did!
The Conexus Kindness Capital Fund encouraged a return on kindness by recognizing 42 individuals and businesses with $5,000 to continue their acts of kindness. We called on you to nominate those who have responded to this pandemic in extraordinary and ordinary ways. We received nominations from communities and treaty territories across our province and re-invested $210,000.
Thank you Saskatchewan!
Watch the moment we told these recipients they were receiving $5,000.
