It is customary for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity to publish financial reports detailing the charity's medical purchases in the run-up to the Grand Finale fundraiser.
We have a new record!
On October the 16th we all decided to celebrate the global edition of Restart a Heart Day by attempting to set a new record. We tried to gather as many people who would perform a 30-minute simultaneous CPR session together! In 2017 we have been joined by 85 010 people and we aimed to gather even more people this year! Our initiative aims to show how easy it is to learn CPR. We also want to promote this skill and introduce even more people to basics of it!
For two months we have received applications from schools, libraries, and other organizations which decided to host their own record attempt. We can now confirm that across the county there were:
116 342 participants
7 465 manikins
1 155 organizations
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.
