Hayastan All-Armenian Fund kicks off its 22nd annual telethon tonight
Tonight, Hayastan All-Armenian Fund will kick off its 22nd annual telethon, which will be held under the slogan “To my beloved Armenia … Water and Sun for Communities.”
The Telethon will be televised live from 10 p.m. Yerevan time (10 a.m. Los Angeles time respectively) on Armenian Public TV. This year, the first four hours of the Thanksgiving Telethon will air live from Yerevan, and the other eight hours from Los Angeles.
The funds raised during the Fund’s flagship fundraising event will go towards the development of potable water and solar energy infrastructures in Artsakh and three regions of Armenia-Lori, Tavush and Shirak. The initiatives will help improve lives of our compatriots in over 100 beneficiary communities, by providing them with regular water supply, free heating and electricity.
The Hayastan Fund aims to involve 1 mln people, who will donate $5-10 every month to help Armenia flourish, the Fund’s Executive Director Haykak Arshamyan told Public Radio of Armenia.
