Let's Light up the Sky 2021
An amazing illumination surprised and delighted us and brought some much-needed cheer into the very dark of last night of January. This time we gazed upon a marvellous show - fireworks erupted from a fantastic led pyramid located in Warsaw city centre.
The main event took place in the very heart of Polish capital, but similarly touching and beautiful displays took place in different locations nationwide and internationally. Traditionally - on Sunday, traditionally, at 8:00 pm sharp, we felt united (even when maintaining social distance and watching on screens of our different devices) despite our differences ina beautiful move of unity and friendship.
The design and creative thought which went into preparing the display in Warsaw impressed and surprised everyone. The fireworks erupted from a stunning led construction erected in the city centre. Vibrant, colourful pyramid displayed our message to the crowds, which gathered at safe distance.
Cashless, contactless donations are a safe, socially distant way of contributing to the aim of the Grand Finale fundraiser. Volunteers with wireless payment terminals will be fundraising in 239 locations in Poland and abroad.
We have teamed up with our friends from Mastercard for the ninth time in a row, and it's our fourth foray into the realm of online fundraising with eCollection Boxes feature. And it's already proving to be more popular than ever!
