The Spirit of Giving
As a kid, getting LEGO for Christmas was something I looked forward to with great joy and anticipation. I would spend a great deal of time staring at catalogs and wishing for anyone of them to be by the fireplace on Christmas mornings. On those mornings, opening a box of LEGO was a magical experience and memories that I will cherish for a life time. I signed onto this charity because I hope to create the same feelings I felt in children who are going through a difficult time in their lives.
My strategy was to wait on a really good deal and pounce on it! Unlike the previous years, this year’s sale was slow. However, during Black Friday, I seized the opportunity to buy sets that were 40 to 50% below MSRP price! Below is a photo of some of the sets that were going to be donated. I am pleased to say that this year, we had a nice selection of themes to give out.
This year I have again distributed the LEGO sets to the 3 Children’s Hospitals located in the greater DFW area (Legacy, Dallas, and Southlake). With LEGO being so coveted at the hospital, you’ve no doubt created fond memories like those I’ve felt on Christmas mornings. Thank you for your selfless acts of generosity. I also want to thank my fellow CFC2012 teammates for their effort and hard work.
Happy New Year everybody!
