Creations for Charity is an annual fundraising event where builders from all over the world donate custom LEGO creations to sell and raise money to buy LEGO sets for underprivileged children during the holidays.

Our progress

In our first year in 2009, we sold 43 creations and raised $2,010. We purchased and donated almost $3,000 worth of LEGO sets to Toys for Tots in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In 2010 we sold 120 creations and raised $9,035 from sales and monetary donations and we donated over $14,000 worth of LEGO sets along with a check for $723 to Toys for Tots in Dallas, Texas.

In 2011 we sold 66 creations and raised $5,700. Despite the lower funds, we still donated almost $9,200 worth of LEGO sets to Toys for Tots in Chicago, Grand Rapids, Los Angeles, and to Children’s Hospital and Make-a-Wish in Dallas.

In 2012, we sold over 100 creations and donated LEGO sets to Toys for Tots in Chicago, Grand Rapids, Los Angeles, Children’s Hospital In Dallas, an orphanage in Croatia, and a school for the underprivileged in Chile.

In 2013, we sold over 100 creations and raised $8,600 and donated over $20,000 worth of LEGO sets to Toys for Tots in Chicago, Grand Rapids, Colorado Springs, Children’s Hospital in Dallas, an orphanage in Croatia, and a children’s rehabilitation hospital in Toronto, Canada.

In 2015, we sold over 140 creations and raised $18,056 and donated over $18,600 worth of LEGO sets to children in USA, Canada, Brazil, Hungary and Australia.

Here’s how it works:

Anyone interested in donating a custom LEGO creation can do so between October 1st and November 15th of each year by filling out a donation form. We will then list your creation on our store and contact you with the shipping address of the buyer once your creation sells. You will then package and ship the creation to the buyer. We are able to reimburse you for the cost of making your creation and shipping it to the buyer.
