🛋️ House equipment

You can find marked containers at UG's Faculties of:

This year's Gift is for Ms Stefania and her son. For years, she has sacrificed for her family, working really hard. Now, due to health problems, she needs our help!

Ms Stefania's husband was an alcoholic, which made their lives even harder. Nowadays, they live in a small apartment, and Ms Stefania has serious health issues that increase her spending on medicine.

The family's income is PLN 3415 - after covering the bills and healthcare, only PLN 814 per person is left.

Let's help Ms Stefania! 🌈🤲


We will appreciate every gift and support! ❤️ Together, we can make Christmas better for those who need it the most. 🎄🎁

The Academic Choir of the University of Gdansk is holding a fundraising event for families in need as part of the Noble Gift! You can still donate until December 15 to buy essential products. The three key needs of the family are:

  1. Food
  2. Cleaning products
  3. Clothing

The children do not have winter trousers and gloves. Receiving these would relieve the family budget and prevent possible illness. The children's mother has a worn-out winter jacket. The girl has outgrown her old winter boots.

Detailed information about the family: Family selection - Family description - Noble Gift

We encourage everyone to support and help organise funds for the purchase of all the basic and additional needs of the Family by donating to our Association's account.
