During a telethon organized by the Hayastan All-Armenian fund, Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called for AMD 10,000 (about $21) monthly money remittances. He proposed “challenging” – each person remitting AMD 10,000 challenges another three and so on.
Mr Pashinyan challenged Serj Tankian, lead vocalist band System of a Down, Kim Kardashian and her husband Alexis Ohanian.
He pointed out that AMD 10,000 will automatically be transferred to the fund from his salary every month.
A total of $9.856m were raised during the Nov. 22 telethon organized by the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund.
The funds will be directed to water-supply and solar energy projects in a number of villages in Arstakh and Armenia.
