Today's Home News: "Greeks pledge 14.7 mln euros for tsunami relief in record-breaking charity drive
Pledges for donations towards tsunami relief had exceeded 14.698 million euros and were still rising on Wednesday afternoon, as a telethon hosted by the state-run broadcasting organisation (ERT) and a handful of private Athens radio stations surpassed even the most optimistic estimates -- topping all previous such humanitarian drives in Greece.

Organisers said that text messages alone, each donating a minimum of one euro, had exceeded 1.634 million by 14:30, breaking the record for all other telethons previously held here."
