I Love Armenia - Telethon 2006 I LOVE ARMENIA! I LOVE ARTSAKH!
9th International Armenia Fund Telethon Is Approaching

A global effort to uproot poverty in the rural communities of Nagorno-Karabakh

NEW YORK, New York – Unveiled on September 14, 2006, the logo of the 9th International Armenia Fund Telethon marked the start of the global fundraising campaign which this year is dubbed as “I Love Armenia!” and “I Love Artsakh”. The Telethon highlights the 15th anniversary of Armenia’s independence, and the global scope of this international event. The logo features a pomegranate with its seeds forming a heart.

I Love Armenia - Telethon 2006Jointly launched from Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Yerevan, the campaign will promote the 2006 Telethon, set to air internationally on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2006. All 19 international affiliates of the Fund are part of this worldwide fundraising event which has reached bold and ambitious goals for the past 9 years. 2006 is marked by another unique initiative - regional development of the war-torn region of Hadrut and its cluster of villages in the southernmost borderline region of Nagorno-Karabakh. Building on the merits of the Mardakert regional development, which is underway, Armenia Fund USA with its affiliates will focus on implementing a parallel program which aims at improving daily lives of people in the impoverished rural villages. Hadrut has suffered greatly during the military conflict that ravaged the region in 1991 leaving most of its critical infrastructure dilapidated and its people desperate for help. The Regional Development Program entails upgrading the economic and social infrastructure of rural communities by using a capacity building strategy that includes almost all aspects of socio-economic development.

Traditionally aired from California, the Thanksgiving Telethon has been a celebration throughout the United States and worldwide since 1996. The Telethon is watched in Canada, Europe, South America, Middle East and the CIS. Millions of people around the world are reached every year through the Thanksgiving Telethon which last year raised over $7,7 million toward Rebirth of Artsakh Regional Development Program and marked an unprecedented public participation in this global fundraising effort to bring long-term sustainable development to Armenia and Karabakh.

The 9th International Armenia Fund Telethon will be a 12-hour live broadcast featuring performances and interviews with celebrities, as well as political and religious leaders from Armenia, Karabakh and the Diaspora. The fundraising program will also include footage from project sites where the Fund, with its international affiliates, has been implementing large-scale infrastructure development projects. Informative field reports will give viewers of the Telethon a deeper understanding of living conditions in Armenia and Karabakh.

Join us on Thanksgiving Day by sharing our mission to secure a prosperous and peaceful future.
