The lion's share of online collections started already on the first of December, giving our donors the opportunity to take part in the 30th Finale of the Great Orchestra, two whole months before the last Sunday of January.
Setting new records!
We aim to promote knowledge of first aid in Poland. Our educational initiative, known as CPR for Schools Programme, is a great example of how to introduce very young school-children to the basics of first aid CPR. We are amazed by how quickly the kids take to the knowledge and how eager they are to share what they have learned with other children and grown-ups.
We would like to invite you to join in our attempt to set another record at simultaneous CPR! Let's try to beat our record from 2016 when we established a new record of Poland - we were joined by 16 557 people who took part in the biggest CPR lesson in the country! Let's show that even more people can learn how to help others this year too.
We kick off our massive lesson on October 16th, at noon sharp and we encourage your school or institution to take part in this fun challenge!
We have been delighted to play Santa Claus to the sisters of St Dominic, who run a care home for orphaned disabled boys in Broniszewice. We donated a modern, fully insured van to the care home.
The chairman of the board of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, Jurek Owsiak, was named one of the personalities who have the biggest influence on the social landscape in Poland. He has also won the public vote in the "Citizen" category.
