raised so far to help sick kids

$12,230,565 million reasons to smile

The generous spirit of Queenslanders has raised an incredible $12,230,565 for sick kids and their families. The money raised will help the Children’s Hospital Foundation support kids by funding life-saving medical research and providing patient and family support programs.

Over the past four years, the Channel Nine Telethon has raised over $46 million, which is made possible by the generosity of our Presenting Partners, and the Queensland community.

At the Channel Nine Telethon, the sold-out studio audience was rubbing shoulders all night, with celebrities such as football legends Wally Lewis and Ben Hunt, and television stars from Channel Nine’s hit drama, Hyde & Seek were on the phone panel accepting donations. Live performances from Judah, Dragon, Pseudo Echo, Leo Sayer and Dami Im brought the audience to their feet as they danced into the night to the hits of Australia’s biggest artists.

A mystical place to escape the everyday – there was an Enchanted Garden next door to the Channel Nine Telethon broadcast where The Coffee Club Telethon Ball was taking place. More than 1,000 people dressed in theme for magical night. Guests enjoyed special performances from Leo Sayer, Dragon, Psaeudo Echo and Judah, winner of The Voice 2017.

Thank you to everyone who donated, and special thanks to our presenting partners Woolworths, Queensland Government, Golden Casket, The Coffee Club, BOQ,  Sunsuper, Triple M, The Courier Mail and The Sunday Mail. Your support will help kids to laugh and smile, get better and go home sooner.

Stefanovic and Jeffreys to join fundraiser for sick kids

HOME is where the heart is for Channel Nine’s golden couple Sylvia Jeffreys and Peter Stefanovic. The couple, who married in April, will return to their native Queensland to co-host the Channel Nine Telethon in Brisbane on November 18 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Despite both working for the Today show, the pair prefer to keep their relationship and work duties separate, but will make an exception in an effort to raise funds.

“I can’t wait to get back to my home state, to help the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the team at Nine raise money for the sick kids of Queensland,” Stefanovic said.

Jeffreys and Stefanovic will be joined on stage by Today’s Richard Wilkins and Natalia Cooper and Today Extra hosts Sonia Kruger and David Campbell.

Channel 9 is set to fly some of its best talent to man the phones with The Block, Family Food Fight, Married At First Sight, The Voice and even upcoming drama Bite Club all to be represented. The Channel Nine Telethon has raised more than $34 million in three years.

By making a donation, Queenslanders will help the Children’s Hospital Foundation support, care and entertain our sickest kids and their families while they’re in hospital and they can be part of something big – funding world-class research to find better treatments and ultimately cures for our most devastating childhood diseases.

We would also like to thank our presenting partners – the Queensland Government, Woolworths, BOQ, Golden Casket, The Coffee Club, The Courier Mail and The Sunday Mail, Triple M and Sunsuper – and their staff and customers for their wonderful support.

The Channel Nine Telethon will occur on Saturday 18 November. If you are interested in donating to help sick kids smile and laugh, get better and go home sooner, call 1800 909 900, or donate online now.

We're proud to fund the Pet Therapy Program at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital to help sick kids in hospital get better and go home sooner with their families.

Every week, Alaskan-Malamute Nanook and our Delta Society therapy dogs, bring their special kind of puppy love to hundreds of sick kids in hospital, like two-year-old Evelyn.

Check out today's Sunday Mail for more on Evelyn and Nanook's story.

We had such a wonderful day at #PaddleForKids. A big thank you to all the teams who took part this year, everyone who volunteered to make this day great, and the fantastic supporters and cheer squads. Most importantly, all the money raised goes to a worthy cause to bring wonder to kids in hospital through Juiced TV.

Congratulation to Hull of a Laugh - 2018 Paddle for Kids champions! A close second to Kezzas Kanoo. Well done to ICUBED, who were the highest fundraisers with $14,795.51 followed closely by Trumps Krazy Kritters with $11,566.73.

This week Juiced TV took it’s first step in supporting kids in regional areas by launching ‘Juiced Box’ at Townsville Hospital’s new children’s ward.

We’re delighted that patients like Teagan, pictured, will now be able to watch the ‘TV show made by the kids in hospital, for the kids in hospital’ direct from their bedside.

The program, proudly supported by the Children's Hospital Foundation, provides entertainment and distraction to sick kids and their siblings every week at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.

The new technology, launched in partnership with the Townsville Hospital Foundation, will help to connect patients and families in Townsville with Juiced TV, allowing them to watch and be part of the show.
