Funds raised by viewers' voting at "Voice" musical show committed to charity

More than 1 million phone calls and text messages have been made and sent by hundreds of thousands of TV viewers from multiple Russian regions during the final round of "Voice" musical contest organized by Channel One. Money received from text messages and calls supporting the competitioners will be shortly committed to charity funds.

Funds will be transferred to four institutions: "Vykhod (Way Out) in St. Petersburg" foundation providing assistance in solving the problems of Autism in Russia; Elizaveta Glinka's "Spravedlivaya Pomoshch (Fair help)" foundation, "Rusfond" (Russian Help Foundation) and "Vera (Faith)" foundation assisting the hospices. MTS will commit its part of the funds to Konstantin Khabensky's Charity Foundation.

Expenditure reports will be published on Channel One web site.

Vasiliy Kuntsevich, i-Free General Manager, comments on this charitable act: "This year, viewers' voting during "Voice" contest has been as sprightly, as always, so we managed to raise quickly an important sum that will be of help to seriously ill people. As the New Year is coming, we are all dreaming of wonders and miracles. I believe that viewers who voted have performed a true miracle, lending a helping hand to those who are in sore need of it. I would like to thank all those who voted and to wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year!"
