To be won, a meeting with Kylian Mbappé ... The organizers of the 2020 edition of the Telethon, which will take place on December 4 and 5, know that this year, with the Covid-19 epidemic, the collection of donations will be more complicated than the other years.
Usually, nearly 270,000 volunteers mobilize and fundraising in the field represents nearly 40% of donations for the benefit of the fight against rare genetic diseases.
“This season, we have tried to make many personalities, including athletes, aware of this difficulty,” explains Nolwen Le Floch, the director of collection and mobilization of the Telethon.
About ten days ago, she contacted the entourage of Kylian Mbappé, the French footballer most able to highlight the event, to ask him for "an atypical prize as part of a raffle".
The response was quick.
"Mbappé and his entourage, continues Nolwenn Le Floch, immediately offered to offer me two places for a PSG match in his personal box followed by a meeting after the match".

With the pandemic, collecting donations will be more complicated.
