We answer your fourteen most frequently asked questions about volunteering on the day of the Grand Finale fundraiser.
How to Recognize a GOCC Volunteer?
We might offer all kinds of different methods of online donations. Yet, the most popular and well-known way of supporting the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is the traditional donation to a volunteer. For each contribution, you will receive a sticker with our logo - the most popular image in Poland!
Should you meet our volunteer, please share a smile with them. They are young and old people who are willing to give up their time on a weekend! We are fundraising to buy medical equipment for children's surgery and treatment this year. Give generously!
It is essential you know how to recognize our volunteer. GOCC volunteers - regardless of where in the world they are raising money in aid of our charity - they all should have an ID card, which provides not only their name & surname but also the number of their Collection Centre, the name of the Chief of the Collection Centre and - what is significant - the number of official permission to hold a public charitable collection given by the Ministry. Our volunteers also carry vibrantly coloured Collection Boxes and sheets of heart stickers.
Volunteers can fundraise in public spaces and at different fundraising events, concerts, raffles, or sporting activities.
Keep your eyes peeled and keep smiling!
