THE GREAT ORCHESTRA OF CHRISTMAS CHARITY
The Great Finale is the basis for all the Great Orchestra of Christmas
Charity's projects. Sponsored by big companies it is a huge, 'multi-
layers' action and the source of funds -eventually spent by the
Foundation on medical equipment for Public Hospitals in Poland.
The Finale is one day long, nation-wide money gathering on the first
Sunday of the year. Volunteers previously registered in the Foundation
collect money on the streets of their hometowns as well as they organize
all kind of creative rallies; parties, concerts, auctions, shows.
The society contributes concern, and the artists free performances. All
the revenues are turned over to The Great Orchestra of Christmas
Charity. Such attitude allows us to achieve one of the most
important goals which is creating the spirit of
community, friendship, and unity.
Our children take part in artistic performances.
The parents throw money into special containers.

“Góra Grosza” (“A pile of pennies”)
In October 2006 children from all over Poland
collected coins with the smallest value.
The aim of the campaign is to make children and
teenagers aware that even the smallest amounts of
money can make up huge value – become one
huge “pile of pennies” which summed up can be
used to help children living in orphanages.
