The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was able to secure the purchase of 37 ventilators for hospitals treating COVID-19 patients in Poland. The equipment was purchased for almost PLN 2 500 000 (EUR 540 000).
Our Collection Boxes hit the Shops
185 000 Collection Boxes were printed by our friends from Stora Enso and will be in use across Poland and - you know it - all around the world - on January 31st. Some more eagle-eyed of you might have spotted our Collection Boxes at shops and other business premises, where you can donate well ahead of the day of the Grand Finale. Our Collection Centres can also fundraise during various events taking place from 15.12.2020.
Our Collection Boxes are vibrantly coloured, and it is straightforward to spot them while out and about, shopping, or running errands. This year we received 185 000 Collection Boxes printed by our friends from Stora Enso. Overall they have printed 3 000 000 Collection Boxes for our charity!
We wanted to make sure that this upcoming Grand Finale was as colourful, happy, and joyful! It seems fitting to need joy in these trying times. Our Collection Boxes are colourful and vibrant, carrying this feeling wherever you spot them!
- Jurek Owsiak, chairman of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation
Even though our fundraising initiative's main event has been moved to January 31st, you can already donate in aid of our charity and pitch in to support the purchase of medical equipment for children's laryngology otolaryngology, and head diagnostics. You can donate to different Collection Boxes, located on shop premises, and other locations. There are 5 837 locations actively raising money. Collection Boxes displayed at shops and business premises must be displayed alongside official permission to run this collection.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is making additional purchases for Polish hospitals. Amid COVID-19 pandemic, we are donating personal protective equipment - masks and face shields for medical staff nationwide.
