– I want to get people out of homelessness – says Tomasz Kozłowski, who parachutes from a height of 45 km – thereby breaking the world record. As part of the Jump for The Planet campaign, the Pole wants to help people around the world who lost their homes as a result of disasters.
As Kozłowski emphasizes, the entire organization of this undertaking required great commitment to reach out to individuals who could help in this task. The help of one of the former presidents of Poland turned out to be crucial.
– I have a “key” that opens many doors in the world – it is Lech Wałęsa – the patron of this project – says Kozłowski. Thanks to this, he joined the whole campaign, among others Secretary-General of the United Nations.
