We have summed up the 57th Open Tender, where we focused on the purchase of medical equipment for children's heart surgery and anesthesiology. We bought 242 medical devices, which will be donated to hospitals in 23 cities across the country.
How to recognize our volunteers?
Our fundraiser is usually a thing of joy and community. However, the main driving force behind the charity is the almost 120 000-strong group of volunteers. Learn how to recognize a GOCC volunteer - whether you meet them fundraising in the streets or raising money during fundraising events.
Our volunteers always carry our beautifully designed Collection Box, ID card (please bear in mind that the ID card should take our stamp, QR code, holographic sticker, and numbers which correspond with the number on their Collection Box), a supply of red-heart sticker and - more often than not a smile on their face. Since 1993, every donor has been rewarded with a red-heart sticker as it has been our custom.
Our educational initiative aimed to bring universal and free first aid training to all primary school children in Poland. To date, we have reached nearly all primary schools in the country, making sure that kids know exactly what to do when it comes to helping save lives.
