The stars of telethon 2010

The real stars of “telethon 2010” are the young innocent little sick children  who battle everyday life with their sickness and disabilities. But thanks to the people  and the stars  life for them is going to be made a little bit  more easier  and you also can be part of it  by doing your bit ( volunteering) or donating to this cause.

 

What is telethon ?

 

Telethon is a registered children’s charitable trust dedicated to raising funds to improve the lives of children and young people throughout Western Australia. Every year common people and stars get together to  raise funds for these sick children.

Last year’s Telethon raised 6 million and brought the total amount raised to $94 million since the event began in 1968. Organisers were hoping to reach the $100 million mark, which would be a landmark for assistance to charitable organisations, children’s hospitals and medical facilities in WA.
