SBS has announced that the newly formed SBS Foundation will support 23 national and regional charities with $2 million worth of television airtime in 2009.
The MD Foundation is thrilled to be one of the charities selected.
"The SBS Foundation Committee received more than 500 applications for support and it was a difficult task choosing the final list of charities," said SBS Managing Director, Shaun Brown.
The Macular Degeneration Foundation was one of 17 charities with proposals for national campaigns that were selected to receive a share of donated SBS television airtime. An additional six charities will receive support in state campaigns.
The MD Foundation would like to thank the SBS Foundation for their generous support in raising awareness of MD in Australia.
