The 47th TeleMiracle is getting ready to take over your screen.
The live broadcast begins this evening.
“Thanks to the goodwill and generosity of our province’s people, TeleMiracle is one of the many annual Saskatchewan events that brings everyone together for a greater purpose,” says Don McMorris, Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission.
“I encourage everyone to support this wonderful fundraiser by tuning in to watch the telethon and let your family, friends, and neighbours know to ‘ring those phones’ to donate to a great cause for Saskatchewan residents.”
The fundraiser will begin at 6:15 p.m. on telemiracle’s website and youtube broadcast.
The live television broadcast begins at 9 p.m. and continues until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Funds that are raised yearly and during the TeleMiracle telethon are used by the Kinsmen Foundation to provide equipment allowing children and adults to access community resources, interact with their peers, and participate in educational, recreational, and therapeutic activities.
In addition, the foundation will provide funding to the people of Saskatchewan for positioning devices, wheelchairs, bath chairs, and walkers to support or improve their quality of life.
Besides calling in pledges during the telethon broadcast, donations can also be made online.
