The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has been awarded during Effie Poland Gala. We received two beautiful statuettes - one for our cooperation with partners and second for 26th Grand Finale fundraiser, which has set a new record - 126 000 000 PLN raised in aid of medicine!
Collection Centre helps in Indonesia
Our Grand Finale Collection Centre from Bali played once again - this time in aid of their local community in Lombok, Indonesia. The volunteers asked our permission to use part of the money raised in their winter fundraising efforts to buy equipment for a local hospital. The activists, who have been working to make the collection a success, saw that their help is needed locally, and they did not hesitate. Even though their main objective was to support Polish medicine they could not be indifferent to the struggle of local, Indonesian health care. Local hospitals suffered in the aftermath of an earthquake.
The Collection Centre stated that its intention is to buy a modern ultrasonography machine for a hospital in the city of Lambok, which has been tragically affected by an earthquake.
The members of the Board of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation received European Citizen's Prize in the European Parliament. We have been honoured to receive the award alongside three other Polish NGOs: Polish-Jewish Forum and Alicja Szatkowska.
We won! After a tense match, which ended in a draw, came a series of penalties. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity team score, while the team of TVN TV station managed to score 2.
