On Sunday 9th of September at the stadium next to the Łazienkowska Street in Warsaw, one more time teams of TVN and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity are going to meet.
Our Valorous Volunteers - how to recognize them.
From the break of dawn the streets of Poland are packed with more than 120 000 volunteers gathering funds during the GOCC Grand Finale "to save lives of children in paediatric wards and to provide dignified medical care for patients in geriatric wards".
Every Volunteer of the GOCC can be easily recognized by three attributes (as visible in the picture below):
1. A colorful cardboard collection box.
2. A set of GOCC heart stickers.
3. An ID issued by the GOCC (with picture, name, number of the collection and a hologram).
Our Volunteers work in pairs or small groups so as to feel safe and secure. On the streets you can meet your peers, colleagues, co-workers, actors, musicians, sportsmen - you name it :) If someone wants to make a donation, but lacks hard cash at the moment, they can contribute to the goal of the Grand Finale provided they find a proper Volunteer equipped with a terminal supplied by MasterCard and PKO SA bank. Every such machine is properly hologrammed. What's more, the GOCC logo is visible on the screen during transactions as well as on the print-outs. How convenient! Thanks guys!
Volunteers from Collection Centres in Holland met to discuss new ideas, plans for the future fundraiser, and compared experiences of holding our vibrant fundraiser in the Netherlands.
