In Malta, there are thousands of children and people living with a disability. Some have Down Syndrome, others have Autism, and some were victims of an unfortunate accident that left them disabled and unable to keep living the way they did before.
The Inspire Foundation tries to help as many of these people and their families as possible, but in order to do this it needs your help.
Inspire believes that everyone has a right to equality and inclusion. The foundation helps people with disabilities by providing them and their families with educational, therapeutic and leisure services. BUT, to do this, it depends on voluntary help and donations. Without the generosity of the Maltese The Inspire Foundation would not be able to keep helping.
On Saturday 25th April, the general public will get a chance to make a difference in the lives of people who need it most. A fundraising telethon will be broadcast on all national TV stations. Packed with information clips, real stories, features, entertainment and lots of surprises, the telethon aims not only at raising much-needed funds but also to raise awareness about disability. The broadcast will start with Sibtek on TVM at 3pm. It will then continue on ONE TV and NET TV at 6pm and picked up by TVM at 8:30pm.
One of the main highlights of the 9 hour telethon will be model/actor Davide Tucci’s attempt to set a new ‘hugging’ record. “We’re all different,” says Davide, “but sometimes we are afraid of what’s different; we forget that different is beautiful. I will be flying back to Malta to embrace difference by hugging as many people as I can in aid of Inspire.”
Other famous celebrities and entertainers will be joining Davide in his quest to set this new record, and the general public is invited to join Inspire either by watching from home or by visiting the studio.
