Jurek Owsiak and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation appeal to the Australian Collection Centres to utilize their Grand Finale fundraising resources to support the efforts to help victims of bushfires in Australia.
Collection Centre Convention in Brussels!
The amazing people working at the Collection Centre in Brussels came up with an idea to organise a meeting of volunteers and activists involving in running Grand Finale fundraisers in ten different countries across the globe. Not only did the representatives of the Collection Centre had the opportunity to exchange ideas, tips, and tricks on running a fundraiser outside its home country, but also they got to talk about their work with the team from the Foundation.
One thing was putting a face to a name and meeting people who took it upon themselves to make Grand Finale events happen in Belgium, Germany, Norway, England, Scotland, the US, the Netherlands, and Ireland. We got to spend 3 days with some of the most driven and enthusiastic people on the planet, who manage - despite all odds - organise vibrant celebrations for their communities.
It's Saturday evening, and we still have hours to go before the Grand Finale fundraiser... and we already raised PLN 11 850 688! It's PLN 1 700 000 more than last year. We are beginning like we mean to go on.
A vibrant, diverse group of people decides each year decides to become volunteers and commit their time effort to raise money in aid of our wonderful initiative. We wanted to know who they are.... so we asked you!
