Having raised a record sum of money, we have held a record-breaking open tender, where, assisted a team of medical experts, our charity has purchased medical equipment worth over PLN 160 000 000!
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!
28th Grand Finale is filled with exciting novelties. Apart from moving to a new location, we will, for the first time, we break with tradition and move the date of our charitable run to January the 11th - but we have more news about the Get Even with Diabetes race!
The medical objective of the upcoming Grand Finale fundraiser, which will take place on Sunday, January 12th, 2020 will focus on raising money to ensure the highest standards of diagnostics and care in paediatric surgery and treatment. Our motto is Wind in Our Sails!
