Jurek Owsiak travelled to Kołobrzeg to unveil two new location commemorating of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation - one a brand new roundabout and the second one - a whimsical statue of a seagull representing a volunteer.
Appeal to the Polish Australians
We keep you in our thoughts. During the Grand Finale fundraiser, we would like to take the opportunity to draw attention to your struggle and extend our support to you. Our Foundation is built by millions of Poles, who fundraise with us in Poland and abroad. The day of the Grand Finale is special - a day of community, solidarity, a day when we all come together to save the lives and health of children. We want to share this unique energy with you!
We want to thank all of our volunteers working at the Collection Centres based in Australia. We want to ask you to donate all the money you raise using the Grand Finale resources and efforts to a charitable organisation in Australia, which focuses on helping victims of the tragic bushfires ravaging your homeland. We trust that you will find the best and most trustworthy organisation to support.
We will always support those who need our help. We believe that you can win against the force of nature, but we know that a huge effort to rebuild is still ahead of all of you. You can count on our support!
We plan to demonstrate our support during the fundraising events in Warsaw. This coming Sunday, we will unfold a massive Australian flag as a gesture of solidarity with the people of Australia.

We have officially begun preparations to hold the 2021 Grand Finale fundraiser, and the process of Collection Centre registration is now live on our websites. Local Collection Centres coordinate the work of volunteers and hold the local editions of the fundraiser.
We raised PLN 17 234 732 (over EUR 3 800 000) through 1% tax donation. Polish revenue allows taxpayers to choose a non-governmental organisation which will receive a donation amounting to 1% of their tax.
