What is telethon ?

Telethon is a registered childrens charitable trust dedicated to raising funds to improve the lives of children and young people throughout Western Australia.

FROM  — WIKIPEDIA

A telethon is a fundraising event broadcast on television that lasts many hours or even days, the purpose of which is to raise money for a charitable, political, or other allegedly worthy cause. Correspondingly, the term is a portmanteau of “television” and “marathon“.
