Default How's this for generosity

For the last 26 hours our channel 7 here in Perth held it's 50th annual telethon in aid of sick children, paying for specialist doctors and researchers, hospitals and equipment etc.
This year it raised a staggering 36.5 MILLION dollars. This is truly an amazing feat when you realise that although Western Australia is LARGE in mass, we only have a little over 2.5 million people and it covers 1,021,478 square miles.
