It’s that time of year again! I would like to start off by saying a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the 2016 Creations for Charity fund raiser. You all did an amazing job and we had yet another successful year!
This was also the last year of the triptic brick, which was designed WAY back in early 2014, and the picture is now complete! I have no idea what the new thank you gifts will be designed/available for next year, but I will be putting my thinking cap shortly! If you have any ideas for any “thank you” items you would like to see I would love to hear your ideas!
In addition to keeping my eyes peeled for 50% off sales throughout the year I also worked with Jack at Chowren Toys to complete my shopping list. Thank you Jack for all of your help and for working with me so I could maximize my purchasing power.
I was allocated $1200 in funds this year and was able to purchase 221 boxed sets and 100 minifigure poly bags for a total of 321 LEGO items. All of these items were donated to Toys for Tots and will be distributed to children in El Paso County, Colorado.
Thanks again and I am looking forward to 2017 ! – Kristi
