Why not help children's hospices while filing your tax return? It's very easy to donate 1% of your tax return to charity - it is enough to fill in the appropriate lines in your tax return form and name the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy) as the beneficiary of your tax donation. According to the Polish law in order to become a beneficiary of the 1% charitable tax donation, an organisation or an individual has to be registered in the National Court Register. Our ID is KRS 0000030897.
We feel that children's hospices are one of the most important institutions supporting both the youngest patients and their parents, helping them to deal with their child's disease and monitoring treatment of often incurable illness. Last year, the Foundation decided to purchase cars for hospices, so that medical personnel and medical equipment can get to little patients to treat them in their homes. Emotional comfort and security prove to be as important in treating young patients as does modern medical equipment.
This year, we decided to provide a more holistic support to hospices - which, contrary to the popular opinion are institutions which help people live - and allocate the funds raised via 1% charitable tax donation to the purchase of medical equipment for hospices.
There is something magical about snail mail. And something so special about having your own stamp - after all it used to be a privilege reserved to crowned heads of state! We were delighted to have been commemorated with stamps with our logo in the previous years, but alas, this year Polish Post removed our stamp from their schedule...
Based on requests we have received from hospitals across the country we are going to be purchasing the equipment for 218 medical facilities in Poland. The funds raised at the 24th Grand Finale will allow us to purchase 2 514 pieces of medical equipment.
Our Peace Patrol family grows with each training session in Szadowo-Młyn. We managed to capture some of the adventures on camera, but to really know what it all is about you would have to be there yourself!
