I have been a part of the online Lego community for 8 years and I am a medical student in real life. It’s my pleasure to see Lego builders use our hobby in a unique and meaningful way to give to charity. Each year, Creations for Charity has shown how much the Lego community cares about giving back and brightening the holidays of many kids. Thanks a bunch for your support!
Sales Coordinator and Croatia Distribution Coordinator
For five years I have been collecting and building with LEGO bricks, my favorite toy when I was a kid. I mostly make buildings, as I study architecture. I have a large collection, and run a small LEGO store in Croatia. Two years ago I started to participate in the Creations for Charity with donating some of my own work and starting this year I am one of the coordinators. I am very happy to be part of this team to help the kids in need.
Grand Rapids Distribution Coordinator
I have been collecting LEGO for nearly 30 years. As a favorite hobby, it has helped me tremendously in preparation for my career as a Scenic Designer and Technical Director for Theater. The Aspects of the design process apply to both scenic design and building with LEGO. The challenges of creating a specific desired look designed with the little plastic bricks which my mom used to scream about when she would step on one left in the carpet, is the biggest appeal to me: creating something great out of a limited supply of parts. I am entering an exciting time, a time when I am able to begin sharing these things with my two boys. Being part of the online community has connected me with too many great people to list. When Nannan and I set out to start Creations for Charity, we had no idea how much support we would get. Thanks for helping be a part of another tremendous year for kids around the country this holiday season.
Chicago Distribution Coordinator
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved playing with Lego! The ability to take “plain” building blocks and make them into anything I wanted was always enthralling – one moment I was a swashbuckling pirate, and then I was in space protecting a space settlement. I recently started getting involved in Lego Minifigure customization (in which I particularly love using BrickArms). Some of my favorite figures include my most recent military figures which used items from a number of Lego accessory vendors as well as cloth and office items routinely used around the home. In real life, I perform opera for a living (I’m a lyric tenor) and just finished performing this summer in New York. I also direct opera and teach voice at a private university just outside of Chicago.
Dallas Distribution Coordinator
I am Ethan and you may recognize me by my alias – Donut! I have been active in the LEGO forums since 2005 though my admiration for our favorite brick dates back to 90s, when I received my first system set. My favorite themes are castle, pirates, and most recently Star Wars. I am not much of a builder; however, in the near future I hope to create a large battle diorama. Aside from LEGO, I love to draw, read comics, and play old console games.
Los Angeles Distribution Coordinator
I’ve been building LEGO practically since I could walk. The Castle and Pirate themes were favorites of my youth, but the Star Wars theme has most of my attention now. I work in the entertainment industry and relish any chance to inspire coworkers to get back into building. My girlfriend is a saint for tolerating all of my building and my cat has thankfully stopped biting the bricks!
Chile Distribution Coordinator
Howdy! I’m Tomas a TFOL and you might recognize me as Groove Bricks. I am the head admin of the Groove Bricks website. LEGO has been my hobby for almost all my life and I enjoy everything related to LEGO. My favorite theme by far is the Star Wars theme I just love that theme. Brickfilms are another thing I enjoy about LEGO. I found out about Creations for Charity last year and I really loved what they were doing. Last year I helped gather funds with my friends and now I plan on taking the spirit of Creations for Charity and spreading it here in Chile. I can’t wait to see what we can do this year with your help!
