Volunteers are Hitting the Streets Already
Even though the 28th Grand Finale will take place on Sunday, January 12th, some Collection Centres are already organising different fundraising events for their communities. What is more, Collection Boxes are displayed on various business premises in Poland and abroad.
Stationary Collection Box can be displayed on business premises and other publicly accessible spaces (city council buildings, libraries, schools) from 15th of December. Collection Box should be displayed alongside a notice - a document which confirms that the collection is officially held in aid of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation.
Fundraising Events can be held starting on the 15th of December. Any event held in aid of the Grand Finale fundraiser can be considered a fundraising event - it can be a workshop or a board-game meet-up, a cook-out, bake-off, a performance or a fancy dress party. Please note that the fundraising events cannot be ticketed, but the organisers can ask you to contribute money in aid of the charity. There will be volunteers present at the event, so you'd be able to donate at any point!
Our initiative travels the world! We are "playing" on all continents, wherever there is a vibrant, energetic Polish community abroad. We are very proud of our friends who decide to play with our Orchestra in the most remote corners of the world.
Wondering how much we raised since the first Grand Finale in 1993?
