Norwegian People’s Aid promised the winner(s) a visit to a workplace or school with an insight into foreign policy and affairs.

FM Støre told NRK P3 prior to transmission he was prepared to talk to any age group.

“You’re used to talking to both adults and young people about your job. The biggest challenge is talking to young people about something as complex as foreign policy”.

The telethon, described as the broadcaster as “the second best telethon ever”, has raised almost 209 million kroner so far.

“This amount far exceeds what we had hoped for, it is fantastic! This allows us to clear more land of mines, cluster bombs and duds left by war and conflict. We are very grateful for the contributions that have come in,” says an overwhelmed People’s Aid General Secretary, Liv Tørres, in a press statement today.

Foreign Minister Støre fetched 120,000 kroner.
