Today is the last day to buy a creation from the 2015 fundraiser. Check out the store to see items still available for sale at the lowest prices. Don’t miss out!
Just over half a month left in the fundraiser and we have already surpassed our previous record! There are still 3 days left to donate a creation. Check out what’s for sale in our store as many items are now discounted.
We are going strong into this year’s fundraiser with already $6,000 raised. Let’s keep it going!
Take a look at some of the new items recently added to the store:
We are off to a great start this year! Earlier in the year we received a $1,434 donation from BrickUniverse and a $2,500 donation from Brickworld. Coupled with the over $1,400 from sales from our first day of the store opening, we are now at over $5,000 raised this year. Check out what has sold and keep the donations coming!
Our annual sale begins today and will run until November 30th. Check out the store to see what’s for sale so far and keep an eye out for more items added until the end of the fundraiser. If you’d like to donate a creation for sale, please fill out a donations form before November 15th.
It’s October, and that means its time for the 7th annual Creations for Charity fundraiser! Starting today, we will be accepting donations of custom Lego creations for our sale from October 15th to November 30th. As usual, anyone can donate a Lego creation for sale in the fundraiser. All you have to do is fill out a form and be prepared to ship the creation directly to the buyer. For the budget builders, you can still choose to be reimbursed for the cost of making your creation.
When you contribute $20 or more to the fundraiser, you will receive a double-sided custom-printed brick. The front features “Creations for Charity 2015” and the back reveals part of a design that will become complete when you collect the bricks from any 3 consecutive years!

A huge thanks to the organizers of the BrickUniverse convention in Raleigh last month for their efforts to raise over $1,400 for this year’s Creations for Charity fundraiser. The money was raised via a silent auction, raffle, and direct donations. We’ll be off to a great start when the 2015 holiday season comes!
We kept our donations in Dallas simple this year and donated 200 speedorz sets that we received directly from LEGO. Since our usual Dallas distributor isn’t around this year, I brought the sets to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. We made the donation on the same day that Fairy Bricks also brought in their Lego donations for the hospital, and together we wheeled in two wagons stacked full of Lego goodies.
Having worked in this hospital this year during my pediatrics clerkship, I know that it’s the busiest children’s hospital in the metroplex. We were told that the hospital is out of Lego sets, so it was perfect that we helped them restock for the holidays. We spent the morning helping kids build with Lego in the playrooms, and it’s great to see their smiles as they take their minds off what’s keeping them in the hospital.
I’d like to thank LEGO again for supplying us with sets to donate this year. They sent us 600 speedorz, so keep an eye out for them in our other donation posts!
The 2014 Creations for Charity fundraiser is over, and we set a new record by raising over $10,000. The final amount will be posted once we have calculated donations from the live stream. Thank you everyone for your participation and stay tuned for photos of our donations. Take a look at all the creations we sold.
We are less than $300 away from setting a new record. Buy a creation in our last day!
