The lion's share of online collections started already on the first of December, giving our donors the opportunity to take part in the 30th Finale of the Great Orchestra, two whole months before the last Sunday of January.
Objective of the Grand Finale Revealed on October 9th
Grand Finale fundraiser has a clear theme and objective - a branch of medicine that will receive our support following the collection. Based on consultations with experts, doctors, and analysis of requests for equipment we receive from hospitals, the board of the Foundation decides on the branch of medicine which requires our support the most. We will reveal the theme and objective of the upcoming anniversary fundraiser on October the 9th.
Jurek Owsiak, chairman of the board of the Foundation, will announce the objective of the Grand Finale fundraiser during a conference with representatives of the Polish Collection Centres - volunteers and local activists involved in organising the fundraiser across the country. The Grand Finale fundraiser, a one-day charitable collection that combines a public fundraiser with events, community activities, and online fundraisers, will take place on January 30th, 2022.
Each time we analyse all data and statistics related to health of children in Poland. We want to make sure that the objective, the aim of our fundraiser offers the solutions to some of the biggest problems faced by patients, parents, and medical professionals. On October 9th, when we announce the objective of the upcoming Grand Finale, we'll invite all Poles to take part in the solution of the problem. We will, of course take the time to highlihgt what needs to be done to address the issue. And I am more than certain that yeat again, together, we'll be able to make our Grand Finale a success - for the kids!
- Jurek Owsiak, chairman of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation
The jubilee, 30th Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is dedicated to the purchase of medical equipment to ensure the highest standards of diagnostics and treatment of eyesight in children. We know how important early diagnostics really is, so we want to ensure that children in Poland gain access to free eyesight screening tests.
See the light - this is the very telling motto of our winter fundraising initiative. We will raise money to buy equipment for children's ophthalmology. Next year we will buy medical devices to save children's eyesight!
