Today we have received amazing news from the European Parliament. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation has been awarded the esteemed European Citizen's Prize, which honours exceptional achievements of European citizens and organization.
You are on your way to work, rushing through a crowded train station, walking around a shopping centre when a kid approaches you as asks - 'would you like to learn first aid?' What would you do? Stop and learn, of course! In 2013 we decided to celebrate World First Aid Day and put our own spin on it. We decided to show the public how and easy and fun learning CPR can actually be. We set up little stalls in cities across Poland where we aimed to offer quick introductory lessons to CPR...but rather than have adults instructing we invited school children, who have been taught how to do CPR at schools participating in our educational programme. Adults were amazed at how professional and put together our youngest instructors proved to be! And after all, learning first aid can be a child's play, regardless of how old you actually are!
