With Grand Finale looming on the horizon (not long to go before we celebrate the biggest fundraising drive in the country!), some Collection Centres are already holding fundraising events and Collection Boxes are displayed on business premises and shops.
Mastercard supports the fundraiser
This year we are rolling a new feature - something addressed to those of our volunteers, who are eager to begin their fundraising ahead of the day of the Grand Finale, which falls on January the 14th this year.
The application, available as a part of our online volunteer database (iWolontariusz) will work as an online eCollection Box. Each of 120 thousand volunteers can launch the application on their profile and begin collecting money for charity today, 10 days before they will take the Collection Boxes into the real world. The application is easy to use and allows the volunteers to share the link to secure payment with their friends -blending offline activity with online initiatives quite seamlessly. The sum raised digitally will then we added to the final tally of the sum that the volunteer manages to collect on Sunday, the 14th.
Each donation can be found in the 'night sky' as a symbolic light of generosity and support towards the charity. You - as our benefactor can either choose to support a personalized eCollection Box of an individual volunteer or donate - 'light the light' here.
Over two days, our CPR instructors will train 76 teachers from 41 schools. Thirteen new schools will join our educational initiative.
We were honoured to receive the Gold Synapse award from the Polish Psychiatric Association. We were nominated in the "Friend of Psychiatry" category. We are delighted that our commitment to improving conditions at paediatric psych wards in Poland.
