Pol’and’Rock Festival is a great summer Festival where our volunteers who work hard during the winter fundraising concerts can be rewarded for their hard work. Although this is a time to celebrate and fest this is also a place where one can learn lots of useful skills that complement our Foundation’s mission.
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.
Join us in this year's record attempt. We will be celebrating "Restart a Heart' Day on October the 16th and showing how easy it is to learn the basics of CPR. Everyone is welcome to participate or hold their own event locally!
On Sunday 9th of September at the stadium next to the Łazienkowska Street in Warsaw, one more time teams of TVN and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity are going to meet.
