A large group from the entertainment and business sectors has begun work on a Global Telethon for Christchurch. The intention is for it to be a multi-channel broadcast, and a sign of national unity that brings focus to the widespread but disparate fundraising efforts that are taking place throughout the country.

Because of its international nature, Telethon for Christchurch is also designed to open up a major new source of funds for Christchurch - Kiwis living overseas - inspiring them to work together with Kiwis at home, towards a common goal.

Help is sought both in New Zealand and overseas for nationwide events as well as satellite events in London, Sydney and LA.

The date is tentatively set for Easter Sunday, April 24th

Please email the WIFT office if you'd like to be involved and we'll put you in touch with the organisers.
