The stars of telethon – 2013

Telethon is known  world wide as a charity event  to banish poverty , help sick kids and bring a lending hand to all in need. Telethon  2013 in Western Australia has just started over the weekend  and has brought in stars from all over Australia and overseas  and is said to raise a  record number of money  this year. The telethon 2012  raised over 14 million, and  it is quite likely that  the record from last year can be beaten
