ArmInfo.World star, leader of the world famous band, Serj Tankian supported the initiative of Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan to create a global Armenian budget within the framework of the All-Armenian Fund.
In his video message on the Facebook social network, Tankian said: "I hereby accept the challenge by PM of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan to donate $23/mo to the All Armenia Fund and in turn challenge Eric Israelyan, Vahe Berberyan and Angela Sarafyan to meet this challenge. Feel free to join the challenge and challenge others to do the same. We can do more with larger numbers of people donating less than a small group donating more."
Yesterday, on November 28, head of the Armenian government, Nikol Pashinyan, within the framework of the 22nd telethon to raise funds in favor of Armenia, urged every Armenian to automatically transfer from their bank cards 22-23 US dollars to the Pan-Armenian Fund. According to him, today it is important that not only representatives of business and politics elites take part in the donation process, but also ordinary citizens. The prime minister announced his intention to start transferring 10 thousand drams to the fund every month, and if all the Armenians of the world follow his example, the amount of deductions will annually exceed $ 1 billion, which is a huge amount for Armenia. As Pashinyan noted, it is necessary to increase the trust of ordinary citizens in the activities of the Fund and faith in the effective use of its funds. "It is very important to increase the image of the Fund, and I assure you that the issue of efficient use of financial resources will be under double, triple control," the head of government said.
