Nathan Farrugia, CEO of Inspire, yesterday, 13th September 2010 launched the annual fundraising marathon, Għinna Ngħinu (Help us Help) during a press conference at the Hilton Malta Business Centre.

Inspire’s largest fundraising initiative of the year will take place on the 21st November between 2pm and 11pm and will be aired live from MFCC, Ta’ Qali, on all the major stations and online, including One TV, TVM, NET TV and ED22.

As an organization which depends heavily on voluntary income, Inspire’s annual telethon is critical to its sustainability. The funds raised from this event will go towards their various services and programmes ensuring they continue making headway in improving the quality of lives of persons with disabilities.

Għinna Ngħinu ’10 will showcase Inspire’s success stories over the past year giving the viewers an insight into how they are enabling people to achieve their full potential irrespective of their ability.

Viewers will be entertained throughout the programme by personalities, artists and VIP’s who will show their support and participate live in studio, encouraging the viewers to contribute as best they can through the phone and SMS donation lines. Furthermore Inspire have invited Graham Fisher’s ‘International It’s A Knockout’ which is based on BBC’s Television’s famous ‘It’s a Knockout’ TV production and involved teams from every European nation trying to complete absurd tasks in big, colourful, hilarious games. The series was so successful  that  it became a national obsession with over 18 million viewers every week and ran for a staggering 19 years.

Based on the TV programme similar to ‘Gioci Senza Frontieri’ in Italy, this shall see MFCC Ta’ Qali transformed into a large inflatable obstacle course where companies, clubs and organisations within the local community have formed teams and through FUN and EXCITING challenges, bring colleagues together for an out-of-office, totally enjoyable experience, whilst raising funds for Inspire.

Through ‘Għinna Ngħinu’ and the various media initiatives relating to this activity they aim to continue raising awareness about the importance of their services, most of which are free or at minimal charge. The community’s participation in this fundraising initiative is essential for Inspire to continue providing a meaningful service to people with disabilities and their families through every stage of their lives.
