You can take a spin on the brand-new roundabout which has been officially named after our charity. We're very honoured and pleased to be such a part of the fabric of the daily lives of citizens of Warsaw.
8 000 Parcels En Route to Collection Centres
We have moved the date of the Grand Finale to 31.01.2021, but the preparations to hold 29th edition of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity fundraiser are going strong. The key elements of the Grand Finale fundraiser are the community hubs of activity - our local Collection Centres, which hold different fundraising events and coordinate the work of our volunteers. It is our custom to provide volunteers with posters, gadgets, ID cards, and Collection Boxes to locations across the world.
Thanks to our friends at UPS, we have been able to deliver parcels to locations as remote as New Zealand or Mexico. This year, just like every year since we began working together 12 years ago, we could count on UPS volunteers, who helped us send over 8 000 parcels to Collection Centres worldwide. We have sent off our cardboard Collection Boxes, Grand Finale promotional posters and - in order to help Collection Centres hold safe events in the age of coronavirus pandemics - a supply of disinfectant and face masks for volunteers.
World Mental Health Day is meant to showcase the importance of emotional well-being and shine a light on the issues of mental health. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity initiated a comprehensive project of improvement at psychiatric wards for children and young adults.
Since the launch of the registration process, over 900 Collection Centres - regional hubs for the fundraising activity - applied to hold their local editions of the Grand Finale fundraiser.
