As part of the 75th Anniversary of Kin’s Milk for Britain Campaign, the documentary below was created for use in schools for children and youth in grades 7-12.
In 1941, Britain sent out a call for help. The call was heard and answered by extraordinary Canadians …
The documentary commemorates and celebrates the 75th anniversary of the influential Milk for Britain campaign during World War II, which brought Kin and Canadians together to help an international community in need: Britain. With over 50 million quarts of milk sent and $3 million raised* (equivalent to $42 million today) to feed British children, the Milk for Britain campaign is a significant and inspirational piece of Canada’s (and Kin’s) history.
Learnography, (formerly Curriculum Services Canada), created the Milk for Britain documentary, ensuring the 13-minute video meets the criteria for use in schools for children and youth in grades 7-12. There is also an accompanying study guide, providing a more in-depth look at the facts of this awe-inspiring story.
