help alliance at the RTL telethon
At the 22nd RTL telethon hosted by Wolfram Kons, a sum of EUR 9,188,527 was raised to help children in need in Germany and around the world. This takes the total sum of donations raised since the start of RTL’s charitable activities in 1996 to more than EUR 160 million.
This is the second time that help alliance was involved in the telethon with a project of its own. Last year, EUR 240,000 was raised for the help alliance project “Open School Cologne”, which was invested, among other things, in refugee care and in a new chemistry lab. help alliance supporter Annette Frier visited the school one year after the 2016 telethon and saw the results for herself.
