On Thursday, November 27, 2008, Thanksgiving Day, Hayastan All Armenian Fund launched its 11th live international telethon to audiences across the globe through cable, satellite and internet networks. Telethon 2008 was beamed from continent to continent with the mission of uniting every Armenian, wherever they are, around a common cause.
With 35,009,156 USD pledged during the 12 hours of live broadcast from Los Angeles, US, this year’s Telethon has marked an unprecedented fundraising landmark for the Fund, more than doubling the already impressive results of the previous Telethon.Proceeds from Telethon 2008 will benefit core infrastructure projects in remote rural
areas of Armenia and Artsakh, bringing profound change where it is needed most.
On November 27, 2008, Armenians worldwide had the real chance to have their input and make that dream of a better life for the people of Armenia and Artsakh one step closer to reality.
For the past 11 years, Hayastan All Armenian Fund has successfully rallied the Armenian people around its nation building endeavor, helping restore Armenia to its heyday and delivering hope to thousands living in remote rural regions of Armenia. Time and again, we have proven that in the face of the biggest challenges, united we stand and that no endeavor is beyond our reach.
