What do we do?

We bring help to those who need it the most

For lack of better words, Anima Action is an informal charity organisation.

What started as a personal mission to bring help to the unfortunate have turned into a larger initiative engaging companies, public institutions, venues, artists and many others in a goal to make the world a little nicer.

Among many causes Anima had aided, the most notable was supporting the palliative care in Gdynia, Poland. We have assisted in developing Amber Harbour (Bursztynowa Przystań), the city's first hospice for children. We have organised numerous events, concerts and social parties to ensure that the facility and its patients get the recognition and financial support they deserve.

We have been managing Amber Harbour's social media presence and together with Jakub Ubych, Magda Stasiak and Michał Ostrowicki, we helped create Gdynia's both adult and children hospices' websites.

While most of our charity work was focused on palliative and health care facilities, we have also engaged in helping the homeless, encouraging voluntary work and supporting talented artists.

Recently we have helped in publishing "Sax Club Pana Dyakowskiego". Co-written by journalists Kamil Wicik and Mariusz Nowaczyński, the book is an extended interview with one of Poland's most recognised saxophonists, jazz veteran Przemek Dyakowski.

Helped to create Gdynia's first child hospice

Among many causes Anima had aided, the most notable was supporting the palliative care in Gdynia, Poland.

In 2013 we had a great chance to assist our friends from Hospice of St. Lawrence Association, Allcon Budownictwo and the local government in developing Amber Harbour, the city's first hospice for children. Since then we have organised numerous events, concerts and social parties to ensure that the facility and its patients get the recognition and financial support they deserve.

Together with Jakub Ubych, Magda Stasiak and Michał Ostrowicki, we helped create Gdynia's both adult and children hospices' websites. We have been managing Amber Harbour's social media presence, raising awareness of palliative care and often running donation drives for food, toys and toiletries. Thankfully, support among the local community has been astonishing, with institutions and people of all ages assigning for the volunteer work and frequently providing children with daily necessities or holiday gifts.

Amber Harbour provides perinatal and postnatal children palliative care, both stationary and at patient's home.

Charity events and Voices for Hospices

Since Amber Harbour hospice launched its activity in 2013, we have been active in raising funds, goods and awareness for its cause.

We organised numerous events, concerts and social parties to ensure that the facility and its patients get the recognition and financial support they deserve.

In 2016 and 2017 we coordinated two 'Spring Awakening' parties. The first revolved around fashion, art and music, the latter - around poetry. More recently we have co-organised two editions of the Polish-French Grand Charity Gala.

Yet the initiative we are the happiest of was joining the international World Hospice and Palliative Care Day celebrations with charity concerts.
Organised annually since 2013, our Voices for Hospices have presented some of the most acclaimed of pop, jazz, and classical musicians, including Raz Dwa Trzy, Robert Kasprzycki, Ania Dąbrowska, Włodek Pawlik, Eric Allen, Jan "Ptaszyn" Wróblewski and Przemek Dyakowski to name some. Hosted by Atlantic Club, Ucho Music Club and lately by Z. Noskowski's Music School in Gdynia, each show met with a warm reception both for its noble cause and great music.

We are proud to say that all these events managed to gain significant interest, media coverage and successfully raised funds for the Amber Harbour hospice.

The Healing Power of Beauty

In last years we had the pleasure to coordinate a project called The Healing Power of Beauty.

Aimed at providing a friendlier environment for those facing difficult health problems, the project helped to donate the works of local photographers to health care facilities in Gdynia. We hope that their beauty might offer at least a mild relieve to people who deal with the most challenging diagnoses.

Kamila Kwidzińska's colourful floral photographies envigorated the walls at the Hostel for Patients and the Oncology Centre of PCK Marine Hospital, while Elwira Kruszelnicka's calming sea landscapes embellished the corridors of Internal Medicine Ward of St. Vincent a Paulo's Hospital in Gdynia.

Amber Block Awards

In 2017 we launched the Amber Block Awards (Bryła Bursztynu), granted to people whose work set an example of altruism and dedication to others.

Beautiful amber statues were designed by the ART7 studio and presented to winners during the Polish-French Grand Charity Galas, charity events co-organised and co-financed by Anima.

In 2017 the award went to professor Dominik Połoński, a world-famous neurosurgeon with exemptional expertise and dedication in saving human lives. A year later the statue was granted to Joanna Matuszewska, journalist and author of an acclaimed guide for oncology patients, based on her own experience of a successful fight with cancer.
