Bonjour, c'est Collection Centre in Paris. The volunteers based in the French capital invite all looking to work with them and get involved in the organization of the Grand Finale to an open meeting. The meeting will take place on September 26th at 14:30 just by the Eiffel Tower - can't get more Paris than that! The exact location for the meet-up will be announced soon. You can enquire about more details and drop them an e-mail at [email protected] !
Collection Centre in Chorzów
We found out that activists working at the Collection Centre in Chorzów used their summer holidays to pitch some great ideas for fundraising events to the city council. They came up with an impressive schedule of 8 events and are already working with a team of 20 people and they have secured a partnership with the city of Chorzów. Well done!
Collection Centre in Redditch
Volunteers based in the United Kingdom are pooling ideas and are currently focused on pooling ideas, brainstorming, and coming up with ideas - especially those regarding activities for the youngest participants. The team is eager to register their Centre and begin officially organizing the Grand Finale in 2022!
Collection Centre in Wuppertal
The team based in the German town works on establishing the best practices to organize a hybrid event - combining an online edition of the Grand Finale fundraiser with a motorized fundraiser, which will bring volunteers to people who decide to donate from the comfort of their homes.
The state-of-the-art PET-CT scanner, which will be donated to the Memorial Children's Hospital in Warsaw, was bought at the 54th edition of Open Tender. The device, worth PLN 16 000 000 will be the first digital PET-CT scanner used to diagnose children.
Our online volunteer registration platform is now live. You can log in or register to become a part of the Grand Finale fundraiser. Play your part in the Grand Finale and choose your local Collection Centre or opt for an online Collection Box.
