Everyone has a chance to help SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival soar this year, by adding a little bit of wind to their sails. 

The Sky Dancer Kite Campaign is an initiative similar to the Helping Hands Campaign, in which shoppers at Swift Current retail locations can purchase a kite to hang up at the store, for a small fee of $5.

Erin Gehl, a volunteer with SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival, is happy to already see so many people taking part in the campaign. 

"It's a fundraising towards the operations of the festival," said Gehl. "Available at 10 or a dozen businesses in town."

Earlier this year, the festival barely escaped a dangerously close to closing financial position in January. Since then, 40 volunteers from the community have been hard at work, endeavouring to keep the show as big as it always is, with kite flyers from all over the world, lots of family-friendly activities, and all the other aspects that make the show great.

By supporting them with the Sky Dancer Kite Campaign, the community can show not only support but also its desire for the festival to endure. 

"The Sky Dancer campaign is meant to really kind of lift both the kite festivals awareness within the city, but then also raise the necessary funds that we need for not only this year but for years to come," said Gehl. 

Anyone looking to volunteer for this year's kite festival is invited to apply online. Anyone who would like to donate can also do so via the web, with any donation over $50 eligible for a tax-purpose receipt.
