Hey everyone, this Kin Year we’re going to try to do some things differently, and that includes recognizing each of you and what you mean to our Kin family and your communities. Part of that will be celebrating our Kiniversaries. So starting with September (yes, I’m a bit late on the draw), let’s honour our fellow Kin celebrating with us this month.
