Olga Tokarczuk donated the first official replica of the medal to the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity to be auctioned off in aid of the medical objective of the Grand Finale fundraiser 2020.
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.
With Grand Finale looming on the horizon (not long to go before we celebrate the biggest fundraising drive in the country!), some Collection Centres are already holding fundraising events and Collection Boxes are displayed on business premises and shops.
Come December all payments made in aid of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity will go towards the objective of the 28th Grand Finale fundraiser. It means that you can already make your first donation and help us buy medical equipment for children's hospitals across the country.
