Philanthropist Samvel Karapetyan pledges $1 million for Hayastan Fund TelethonRussian-Armenian industrialist and benefactor Samvel Karapetyan has pledged to contribute $1 million to the fund’s upcoming Thanksgiving Day Telethon.
The Telethon’s primary goal this year is to raise funds for the construction of single-family homes for families in Nagorno Karabakh who have five or more children and lack adequate housing. Thanks to Karapetyan’s donation, some 115 children and their parents will be provided with comfortable, fully furnished homes.
“We are grateful to our friend Samvel Karapetyan, who for years has generously supported our projects,” said Ara Vardanyan, executive director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, and added, “I’m confident that many of our compatriots will follow in his footsteps.”
The Telethon will air for 12 hours on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, beginning at 10 AM Pacific Standard Time.
