Who are the GOCC Volunteers?
Today we celebrate Internationa Volunteer Day. It's a day to honour those people, who selflessly give their time, skills, and enthusiasm to make the world a better place. We at the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation are lucky enough to have the support of hundreds of thousands of people of all ages, creeds, and world-views, who come together to help us to achieve our goal - ensure that all children in Poland can rely on access to the best medical devices.
Volunteers have been creating our history from the very beginning of our charitable activity. What began as a small local initiative grew into an international movement attracting over 120 000 volunteers worldwide.
We wanted to know more about our volunteers, and we were also curious about what the general public thought about our volunteers. Are you interested in what we found out?
- 80% of respondents consider GOCC volunteers to be trustworthy
- 87% of respondents perceive GOCC volunteers to be full of enthusiasm
- 88% of respondents value the fact that volunteers commit their time
Thank you to all volunteers and let's keep on rocking!
Grand Finale fundraiser is just a couple of weeks away, so, it's a very good time to check in with the Collection Centres to see what they have planned for Sunday, January 12th!
Jurek Owsiak and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation appeal to the Australian Collection Centres to utilize their Grand Finale fundraising resources to support the efforts to help victims of bushfires in Australia.
