Each year we finish the day of the Grand Finale fundraiser with a preliminary amount of money we collected in aid of our charity. The sum is preliminary because it is based on the estimated amount raised by our volunteers, our online auctions and other means of support.
The main area of the Foundation's activity is medicine and saving lives of the youngest of patients as well as improving the conditions in geriatric wards across the county. However, in July of 2010 we have held a day-long public fundraiser in aid of voluntary fire departments in Poland. In 2010 the southern part of the country has been seriously affected by tragic floods, and we intended to purchase equipment which would help those on the first line of defence against the destructive force of nature.
At this one-of-kind summer Finale we have managed to raise 2.644.507,34 PLN and these funds were used to purchase equipment for voluntary fire departments. We decided to equip these units in devices which are necessary to combat the effects of flooding.
