    • Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy WOSP The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity
    • WOSP in Poland
      • In Poland we take part in WOŚP celebration every year. WOŚP is an organisation, in which people, mostly teens, gather money for ill and disabled children who need expensive equipment for further treatment. WOŚP was founded on 2nd March 1993. On 9th January 2010 there was 19th edition of WOŚP to , as usual , purchase equipment for children with unusual and exepnsive to cure diseases. We gathered more than 47 mln zl. I participated this year in WOŚP and I'll never forget this experience! :-) [Ewelina, 16]
    • The logo
      • The logo of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is a red heart with „Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy” inscription (Polish for “Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity”). It symbolizes aim of the first fund- raising- children's cardio-surgery. It was a Polish jeweller who came up with the idea, so he could make some gold hearts to auction them. Year after year (annually) money from these auctions helps to buy equipment for specific aim s . [Martyna, 16]
      • During XIX WOSP final in January 9th, 2011, we were gathering money to buy equipment for kids with urological and nephrological diseases. We gathered 47 248 415,05 PLN which is a huge success . Whole Poland helped in this action! [Marcin, 16]
    • Jerzy Owsiak
      • Jerzy Owsiak (born October 6, 1953 in Gdańsk, Poland) is a Polish journalist and social campaigner. Jerzy Owsiak is a founder and chairman of WOŚP. For the first time it was for children treated the largest children's hospital in Poland. Now it is for all hospitals but still mainly for children. Every year voluntaries collect money for those with oncology problems. Life: When Jerzy Owsiak was eight years old he moved with his parents from Gdańsk to the capital of Poland, where he graduated in economics, and then tried to apply for the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. As he confirms, as a teenager he belonged to the society of hippies from Masovian Voivodeship looking up to their "American brothers". It is because of that fascination and the legend of the Woodstock Festival 1969 that he came up with the idea of the "Woodstock Stop„ festival.
      • Radio career: Due to his acquaintance with Wojciech Waglewski, Jerzy Owsiak became well-known in the music community. Since 1988 he began turning up at the Voo Voo concerts with a band Towarzystwo Przyjaciół Chińskich Ręczników founded by him, and he started to run his programme in Rozgłośnia Harcerska (the Scout Radio Station). In the 1991-2007 period, Jurek Owsiak cooperated with Polish Television. Since December 1991 he started to prepare a TV programme "Róbta, co chceta, czyli rockendrollowa jazda bez trzymanki" for TVP2, which changed its name for "Dziura w koszu" since summer 1994 and for "Kręcioła" since 1996. In 2007 he came back to the radio. In July 4 he ran (for the first time) "Dźwiękoszczelny magazyn Jurka Owsiaka" in the Radio WAWA. Now, he runs this programme in Eska Rock radio station and hosts WOŚP throughout Poland each January . [Rysiu, 16]
    • Volunteers
      • WOSP volunteers, also known as "puszkowicze„ (can men  ) in Poland, are people who gather money for WOSP. Their job is to walk around a city and collect as much money as they can. Everyone can give money for WOSP, and they do not have to worry - puszkowiczes are very honest people and they can be trusted, they would never steal other people's money. [Zbyszek, 16]
    • WOSP in Gim12 ;)
      • The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity 2011(WOŚP) In January 5, 2011 we organized another event to celebrate this festival In the morning we held a very popular raffle interest and in the evening a disco and a concert. We hosted a great team: God's Property- a gospel from our town, and asked Artur Marciniak-our graduate- to beat box The last 90 minutes of clubbing in a thrilling style belonged to another graduate Dan Patrick - DJ Dank, together with Mad Fiddle - Matthew playing the violin. The party was attended by many students of the School. There were a lot of nice reviews, which attracted students from other schools and memorable graduates of "Twelve. " Thanks to them we can say that another party was successful. Thank you. On Sunday our group of volunteers equipped with cans set off to the town in search of generous donors. In total, we managed to collect and transmit WOŚP Foundation a record proceeds of: 5350 zł [Karolina, 16]
