  • Internet auctions raising money for WOŚP
This coming Sunday, January 11 is the Grand Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, the enormous national charity drive that started off as a fundraiser for children's healthcare.


This year's 23rd edition of the Grand Finale is dedicated not only to "maintaining highest standards in the treatment of children in pediatric and oncology wards," according to the Foundation's website, but also "providing decent healthcare for seniors".

While an army of some 150 thousand volunteers will be out in the streets with collecting boxes and the signature heart-shaped stickers, part of the effort has now moved to internet auctions, selling anything from the usual footballers' jerseys to nights in jail.

Reporter Elżbieta Krajewska spoke to jeweller Anna Mazoń, participant of a fund-raising initiative featuring hand-made jewellery and offbeat items that last year crashed the auction website.

If you are interested in a steampunk biker jacket, unique trappings for that very special horse or just a one-of-a-kind charm bracelet, in a good cause moreover: there is an English address for the auction: tinyurl.com/itemswithheart.
