The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has been awarded during Effie Poland Gala. We received two beautiful statuettes - one for our cooperation with partners and second for 26th Grand Finale fundraiser, which has set a new record - 126 000 000 PLN raised in aid of medicine!
Greetings from space!
What a time to be alive! Our humble heart-shaped logo is now orbiting the Earth! A satellite called てんこう, which has been developed in the Tanegashima Space Centre in Japan has been launched into space on October the 29th. At 13:08 JST sharp, the satellite, which is bearing a plaque adorned with the logo of the Great Orchestra of the Christmas Charity Foundation was taken into the orbit by the H-IIA rocket. The satellite is currently orbiting the Earth, fulfilling its research mission.
Maybe, if you look into the sky at night, you will be able to spot the fast-moving little satellite, which, thanks to Alek, the mastermind and scientist behind the project, takes our idea of a charitable initiative to space! The engineer remembers that he'd had the idea to celebrate our charity while speaking with his father and he has since worked very hard to build a satellite. The device, which weighs 23 kilograms, took a year and a half to design and construct.
It's official! We have set a new record in most people taking part in a simultaneous CPR session. We celebrated Global Restart a Heart Day together with over a hundred thousand people!
Because helping is child's play. Next year our charitable collection will be held in aid of specialist children's hospitals. Are you ready to play with us?
