I would like to say thank you to everyone who has contributed in some way to Creations for Charity, the support of all of you is very important. Thank you so much!

Project May 23 ( Creations for Charity)

This year my personal goal was to serve an institution with more than 100 children, and this was possible because of the support of the entire community around the world. I chose the May 23 Project, which was created in 2009 to help children including youths and adolescents in the neighborhood on Red Earth. The initial idea of ​​the project was to provide food and shelter for the needy children in the nearby neighborhoods. Over the years, activities have been incorporated to take the children out of the streets to prevent them from entering the world of crime and drugs. Today, the project has Portuguese, English, dance, martial arts, painting and soccer classes. The project is all maintained by volunteers.

As usual I involved several other friends who, besides helping me in this project, also donated clothes and food to those children who so badly need our support. It was a wonderful party and of course we all sat on the floor with the children and went to do what we know best, play with this wonderful toy called Lego that gives us moments like this of so much joy.

Creations for Charity 2015: Brazil

Posted in Uncategorized on 11.01.16 by

It is amazing to see the growth of donations year after year with Creations for Charity. I want to thank this wonderful community for their belief and support in us.

This year, it was my privilege to be invited to be part of the distribution coordinators team. I confess that this was unexpected but I was extremely happy join and help bring a little joy to those people who no longer know what it means. I was not able to get the LEGO sets before Christmas due to a delay in delivery. In a way I think this turned out to be a good thing since orphanages receive many visitors during the Christmas holidays and no visitors during January. I asked a group of my closest friends to join me and we selected two orphanages. We donated over $2,250 worth of Lego sets. The first orphanage was Casa Lar Walter de Souza Barcelos, which consisted of adolescents who unfortunately were not adopted and already very close to the age limit allowed to stay in foster care.

The second orphanage was Casa Lar Fraternidade OraAçao, which consisted of infants, toddlers and children who are waiting to be adopted.

The kids were super excited and happy. Spending the day with them and seeing their big smiles while constructing and deconstructing the LEGO sets was simply amazing. Thanks again to all who have contributed in some way to the realization of this beautiful work. I hope we have another wonderful year in CFC.
