Alexis Ohanian accepts challenge to donate to Armenia Fund

Reddit and Initialized Capital co-founder Alexis Ohanian has accepted Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s challenge to make monthly donations to Hayastan All- Armenian Fund.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan challenged System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian, Reddit and Initialized Capital co-founder Alexis Ohanian and TV personality and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian, calling on them to donate to Hayastan All Armenian Fund.

“You got it, Nikol Pashinyan,” Alexis Ohanian said on Twitter as he shared the news from Public Radio of Armenia.

  Speaking live during the Fund’s 22nd annual Telethon, the Prime Minister called on the three prominent Armenians to make monthly donations to the Fund and pass the challenge on to others.

“Before coming here, I visited the Hayastan Fund’s website, made the necessary adjustments to transfer just 10 thousand AMD to the Fund’s account every month. If five million Armenians around the world do the same thing, we will have over $1 billion on average annually,”  PM Pashinyan stated.

The Prime Minister added that it’s now important for Serj Tankian, Kim Kardashian and Alexis Ohanian to challenge another three Armenians and make it publicly so that anyone who that accepts the challenge, passes it on to three others.

“We will thus have a pan-Armenian budget,” Nikol Pashinayn noted.

A total of $9,856,100 was raised during Hayasna All-Armenian Fund’s 22nd. Annual telethon.
