Today we have received amazing news from the European Parliament. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation has been awarded the esteemed European Citizen's Prize, which honours exceptional achievements of European citizens and organization.
How to recognize our volunteer?
We took our initiative all around the world and there are 120 000 volunteers working to raise money to improve the conditions at Polish hospitals for children. Everyone is welcome to volunteer with us - regardless of their age, religion and where they come from.
What unites them is positivity, optimism, and a few key elements which each volunteer must carry with them:
- vibrant Collection Box - this year we went with butterflies and children's toys
- ID card
- the number on the ID card must march the number on the Collection Box
- plenty of red heart-shaped stickers
Please bear in mind that our volunteers do not do door-to-door fundraising. You can meet them on the streets and marketplaces of towns and cities across the country, and at different events taking place abroad. You can check if there are any fundraising events taking place in your area here.
Very often our volunteers would dress up to attract more attention to themselves, and they should be fundraising in a group - it's much safer that way.
If you meet one of our brave volunteers - even if you don't want to donate to our cause - give them a smile!
Join us in this year's record attempt. We will be celebrating "Restart a Heart' Day on October the 16th and showing how easy it is to learn the basics of CPR. Everyone is welcome to participate or hold their own event locally!
We won! After a tense match, which ended in a draw, came a series of penalties. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity team score, while the team of TVN TV station managed to score 2.
