The WOŚP  is a one-day public event, organized by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy Foundation).

The 27th Grand Finale will be held on January 13, 2019. The whole event will be shown in a TV broadcast and will consist of blocks, and live inputs arranged in a full-day programme.

The Grand Finale is organized locally by groups of volunteers working in regional Collection Centres and, just like in previous years, there will be nearly 1,700 Collection Centres coordinating the work of 120,000 volunteers.  The Collection Centres are based around the world, wherever there's a thriving Polish community looking to come together and "play" in aid of children in Poland! This year they will be raising money to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for specialist children’s hospitals in Poland.

Last year the event raised PLN 951 million to support Polish medicine.
