This year, fundraisers have been held in the United States, Canada (Montreal and Toronto), France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Greece, Sweden, Great Britain, Austria, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, and Russia (Moscow). Funds raised through all 2012 events will be added to the proceeds of the Telethon, and the grand total will be announced prior to the conclusion of the event.
