We are celebrating the 30th anniversary of registering our Foundation. Can you believe it? The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was registered exactly on 2 March 1993.
"Perły Medycyny" award for the Foundation!
Professor Piotr Burczyński, vice-chair of the board of the Foundation and one of the founding members of the GOCC Foundation has received the award on behalf of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. The recognition of our charitable initiative, which aims to equip public hospitals and clinics with sophisticated medical machines comes after the record-breaking anniversary Grand Finale when we came together for the 25th time to support paediatrics and geriatrcs.
The registration of Collection Centres, i.e. hubs of volunteers organizing the Grand Finale events for their local community, is now over. Collection Centres will be actively participating in the 32nd Grand Finale fundraiser across Poland and in 101 locations around the world!
Today we observe the World Spank Out Day (No-hitting, no-smacking, no-spanking day for children) promoted by the American EPOCH (End Physical Punishment of Children) organization, annually. It has been 20 years since the GOCC Foundation initiated the Teddy’s Tale – Don’t hurt me, love me! action aimed at raising the awareness among adults and children on the harmful effects of corporal punishments of the underage.
