FIRST OF ITS KIND TELETHON IN BELIZE TO RAISE FUNS FOR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN


The Special Envoy for Women and Children, Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow and CARE-Belize are hosting a telethon on Saturday, June, 30th, 2012 in the hopes of raising $1,000,000 towards the construction of the Inspiration Center. This center will offer basic medical care and various therapies to children with special needs and serve as a community center with after-school classes for children from the surrounding communities.

The telethon will run from 8am to 6pm from the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts and will be simulcast on local TV and radio as well as live streaming on the internet.

Belizeans and friends of Belize, at home and abroad can donate by cash, depositing to the center’s bank account, through texting, billing pledges to their BTL and BWS accounts, credit card or even buying Inspiration Center T-shirts and hats. Ten booths will be set up across the country, including Placencia and San Pedro, where citizens can go to donate or buy the promotional items. On Saturday, both SMART and BTL customers will be able to access the telethon’s hotline 0-800-INSPIRE (467-7473), while international audience can dial 501-227-WISH (9497).

Right now your help is needed. Will you give now and help us to achieve this goal?  Change can only happen through advocacy.

There are many special needs children living in Belize. They are counting on you today to help fuel this program.

With your support, we will be able to offer special needs children a place to receive the distinct care and therapies they so badly need.

Give a gift today; we can’t do it without you. And by doing so you can help us move closer to a place of freedom for the special needs children in Belize.
