Thank you for the 26th Grand Finale!
Each year the outpouring of support our initiative receives from the community of good people from all over the world is more and more remarkable and humbling. The charitable Orchestra 'plays' to support public medicine in Poland, and in order to do so successfully and on a big scale, we hold an annual public fundraiser.
This year we have been joined by 120 000 volunteers, working tirelessly at 17000 Collection Centres - local hubs of activity - located all over the world. We would like to thank each and every one of the wonderful people who has been involved in the organization of the fundraiser: dedicated crews at the Collection Centres, who began their work months ago, sponsor, who have lend funds and resources, local authorities for their support and each volunteer who has taken upon themselves to collect money on January the 14th. Without you, it would not have been possible!
We also would like to thank for each generous gift and donation made either in person, online or in a form of item donation for our charitable auctions - money raised thanks to your generosity will go towards the purchase of medical equipment for neonatological wards in Polish hospitals. Together we can transform the face of Polish medicine and ensure that all babies born in Poland have equal access to medical care.
There are still options to support the cause of the Grand Finale. You can donate using online methods until the end of January 2018. For all methods of donation, please click here.
The 12-year old has shown he has what it takes to become a real hero by helping a senior citizen. The boy learned first aid during CPR for Schools lessons at his primary school!
We have begun the biggest shopping for medical equipment in the history of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. We intend to purchase 2818 pieces of equipment!
