See what’s new for sale!
I gave a brief talk about Creations for Charity on Beyond the Brick. I think it’s a good overview video about the charity. Check it out on YouTube.
The fifth annual Creations for Charity sale starts today! From now until the end of November, you can buy a custom creation to help raise money to buy Lego sets for underprivileged children. These creations are all built and donated by the fans, and there’s more to come throughout the sale. Anyone can donate a creation before November 15th by visiting creationsforcharity.org and submitting a donations form. Take a look at some of the creations for sale so far:
Join the crowd and take part in the Lego community’s annual tradition of giving back!
Here is our gift for contributions of $150 to the fundraiser. It features 4 printed tiles on an ornament design by Chris McVeigh. Our store opens in 1 week on October 15th!
For this year’s Creations for Charity, you can purchase a talk session with a builder of your choice. For $25-$50, you can buy a 30 minute to 1 hour Skype session with a Lego builder of your choice who will be happy to share their building experiences, offer tips for improving your creations, or even show you their collections.
We will have a handful of volunteers who are offering their time to chat with you, and you can request builders by contacting us and we will try to arrange a talk session with your desired builder.
The fifth annual Creations for Charity is now accepting donations of Lego creations from anyone wanting to help raise money to buy Lego for underprivileged children. From now until November 15th, 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, and as usual there are unique gifts to reward your help. It is always my pleasure to invite you to participate in the Lego community’s tradition of giving back!
Here are last year’s donations to four cities in the US and in Chile and Croatia. To learn more about what we do, watch the promo video.
