Charity Marathon in Bogdanka

Monday, 2014-12-22

Helping strengthens, ennobles and teaches!

In December 2014, the Company joined two pre-Christmas charity actions. The first was “Szlachetna Paczka” (Noble Package) organised by the WIOSNA Association, whereas the second was “Wigilijna paczka” (Christmas Eve Package) organised by the Szczęśliwe Dzieciństwo (Happy Childhood) Foundation. This is how the December Charity Marathon, being the expression of collective engagement, empathy and sensitivity to other people’s problems, began.

The Charity Marathon was a time of great mobilisation, commitment and emotions related to providing help to persons in a difficult situation. The task faced by the LW Bogdanka S.A.’s staff was a true challenge, yet thanks to the great commitment of the employees, it was possible to meet it, deriving much satisfaction and joy from the fact of bringing help to other people


In less than a week and a half (8-16 December 2014), 407 flaps were collected (one flap amounts to PLN 17, for the uninitiated - a “flap” is a voucher for a regeneration meal), more than PLN 4,600 in cash and uncountable amounts of sweets, toys, etc. that filled the baskets located at particular sites to their very brims. The entire undertaking was supervised by a rank-and-file Charity Marathon Team that coordinated the work and made sure that everything run smoothly and efficiently.

It is a great gift of heart, including tears of happiness and tenderness of the package recipients. A report from handing the package over to one of the families reads as follows:
[...] Jan and Maria were very happy at a gas oven: “o gosh, a new oven, I am very surprised, thank you”. Jan was also very grateful for a belt. Julia was truly moved when she received a jacket. She tried it on immediately and said: “it’s beautiful, fits perfectly”. She was also very happy for the clothes for her little daughter. Adam could not believe when he opened his present: “I received two pendrives, and I haven't expected even one".

A volunteer of “Szlachetna Paczka” who took care of the family, said:
I would like to thank you for your cooperation. Above all, for bringing help to the family I looked after. I would especially like to thank for the gas oven and food. I am surprised at the size and quality of the package.”.

In return, the employees received a symbolic certificate and a Christmas card from the beneficiaries. The entire undertaking can be summed up with Nikolay Gogol’s words: “We are never so poor that we could not afford to assist a neighbour. [...] Without their help we won't ever achieve anything on our own.
