The Board of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation decided that this year the charity will be using the funds raised through 1% charitable tax donations to support the child and adolescent psychiatric facilities.
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!
The process of counting the money raised at the Grand Finale public collection is lengthy and complicated. There are different fundraising methods to be accounted for and the money we raised is counted until March the 8th.
The representatives of the Foundation, Jurek and Lidia have officially donated the fully-equipped ambulance to University Children's Hospital in Kraków. The emergency vehicle is worth nearly 600 thousand PLN.
