We will be updating the list of hospitals, care homes, and other institutions which will receive medical equipment, PPE, masks to help in their fight with COVID-19.
Preliminary Amount vs Amount in our Account
Each year, at the very stroke of midnight on the Grand Finale day, we announce the preliminary result of our fundraiser. The product estimates based on reports we receive from local Collection Centres, preliminary results from online auctions and internet fundraisers. But what does the initial amount actually stand for?
At the end of the fundraiser's day, we announced that we raised PLN 127 495 626. This result will be verified and will change as the online donations will continue to be transferred into our account until the end of February. Online auctions will be ongoing until February 14th. Local Collection Centres will still have an opportunity to verify the result of their fundraisers. It is also worth bearing in mind that you can even donate via Facebook or text, so naturally, the result of the collection will change over time.
The amount in our account, which is displayed on our website, shows the actual money in our account, which we update twice daily. We freeze the count once we reach the benchmark of the preliminary account. We take the time to celebrate the reveal of Grand Finale fundraiser, relishing an opportunity to surprise our benefactors with the final result. This year we plan to announce the result of our collection on March 29th.
Our charity signed a contract for the purchase of more protective equipment for frontline medical workers. We ordered 50 000 coveralls, brining the sum we allocated for COVID-19 Relief Initiative to PLN 30 000 000.
Our charity has already signed contracts for the purchase of ICU beds and thousands of personal protection equipment sets
