Are we getting ready to volunteer with the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity? We have picked our volunteers brains for the best tips and advice on how to make your volunteering experience best it can be.
Meet our Volunteer!
The 28th edition of Grand Finale fundraiser will take place on Sunday, January 12th and different Collection Centres planning to hold various fundraising events and initiatives from mid-December. Each member of the 120 000-strong group of volunteers will be instantly recognisable thanks to their smiles, and positive attitude as well as ID cards, lanyards, colourful Collection Boxes and a massive supply of red heart stickers with our logo.
A closer look at the ID card:
The ID card is not only beautifully designed and colourful, but it should also, above all, contain all relevant information - personal details of each volunteer (name and surname, and in case of a volunteer who is underage, information about their guardian), their photo, the official number of our fundraiser (assigned by the Ministry of Administration), hologram sticker, our official stamp and QR code.
Let's check out the Collection Box now
Very colourful and traditionally made out of cardboard, the Collection Box is a Grand Finale staple. Each volunteer will use the Collection Box branded with this year's fundraiser artwork and logo. Banderols, secure the Collection Box, which also must bear the volunteer's ID number. Volunteer's ID number must correspond with the number on the Collection Box. Look for the ID number on the upper lid of the Collection Box.
Positive attitude and hundreds of thousands of stickers
Grand Finale is a real phenomenon - a celebration of community, where donor and organisers celebrate their ability to help others. We have always wanted it to be a happy, joyful event which will break up the dreary winter months. Our volunteers are always cheerful and friendly - so please be friendly and courteous in return too!
We could not fail to mention our traditional red-heart stickers. Sticker with our logo is given in return for each donation, and our logo became one of the most famous symbols in Poland!
With Grand Finale looming on the horizon (not long to go before we celebrate the biggest fundraising drive in the country!), some Collection Centres are already holding fundraising events and Collection Boxes are displayed on business premises and shops.
28th Grand Finale is filled with exciting novelties. Apart from moving to a new location, we will, for the first time, we break with tradition and move the date of our charitable run to January the 11th - but we have more news about the Get Even with Diabetes race!
