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!
What is the aim of GOCC collection this year?
Cheerful smiles, lots of music and strong emotions. We have just started the 27th Grand Finale, you can see hundreds of our volunteers on the streets raising money. But do you know what is the aim of this years collection?
Helping is child's play! The aim of this year's Grand Finale is raising money to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for specialist children’s hospitals in Poland. The funds will go to the facilities which can make specialist diagnosis and provide medical help for most difficult cases.
In Poland we have almost 50 of such facilities, all around the country. In those facilities the highest standard of the equipment is of most importance, as it gives the medical staff the possibility of diagnosis and treatment of most severe cases.
We will focus mostly on specialized diagnostics facilities, and above all on imaging, radiology and laboratory. We would like to equip those facilities in:
- MRI equipment
- Computer tomography equipment
- RTG diagnostic equipment
- Endoscopy equipment with track vision for gastroenterology.
It’s a truly noble goal. As Jurek says himself, “We’re able to help keep high standards and possibilities in medical treatment. And this is what we will do, till the end of the world and one day longer.”
Today you can support our cause, traditionally by making a donation in the Collection Box. If you don’t have that possibility, you can support us online. Check how to do it!
Wondering how much we raised since the first Grand Finale in 1993?
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.
