Announcing the second annual Creations for Charity 24 hour live stream presented by Beyond the Brick!

Posted in Uncategorized on 21.11.15 by

Creations for Charity 24 Hour Live Stream Presented by Beyond the Brick

For a period of 24 hours last year, LEGO fans from all over the world joined a live stream to help support Creations for Charity. From building LEGO sets, working on MOCs, discussing the LEGO hobby, to sorting LEGO; it’s safe to say that everyone involved had a great time and all for a great cause.

This year’s event will be building upon last year’s success and taking the art of building with and talking about LEGO for 24 hours non stop to new heights! With 24 hours of non stop LEGO action, this is surely going to be something you won’t want to miss. From 5pm EST on Friday November 27th to 5pm EST on Saturday November 28th, we’ll be fighting off sleep to to bring you all kinds of LEGO goodness!

What exactly can you expect during the 24hr live stream?

The building of numerous LEGO sets.

The sorting of numerous LEGO parts. (Sorting LEGO with friends makes the pain that is sorting a little bit easier to bear, right?)

The discussion of numerous LEGO related topics.

At least one LEGO related presentation or talk as you would normally witness at a LEGO fan event or convention.

…and much, much, more!

If you would like to participate in this live event and join us on the air to do things with LEGO, please head on over to our lovely Google Form and fill it out and hit submit so that we can see about getting you on!

If you would like to simply watch the live stream you can do so by monitoring either creationsforcharity.org or the BeyondtheBrickTV YouTube channel closer to the date. We’ll be updating creationsforcharity.org with all of the latest information about the live stream and when we are live, you should also be able to view the live stream directly from the BeyondtheBrickTV YouTube channel.

Last year during the live stream, a few individuals pledged certain dollar amounts if the people participating in the live stream did “certain things”. One of those “certain things” was to wear a wig, needless to say lots of wigs were worn. This year we’d like to kick it up a notch. By donating to Creations for Charity you’re directly helping to further its mission. In donating you also may or may not unlock the ability to make certain live stream participants do “certain things”. So, donate wisely and be creative!

Who?

Beyond the Brick, Creations for Charity, and LEGO fans like you from across the world!

What?

The 2nd annual “Creations for Charity 24 Hour Live Stream Presented by Beyond the Brick”

When?

5pm EST on Friday November 27th to 5pm EST on Saturday November 28th

Where?

Please visit either creationsforcharity.org or the BeyondtheBrickTV YouTube channel to view or find out how to view the live stream

See you on the internets!

Love,

The Beyond the Brick Team

Donations for Creations for Charity 2015 starts today!

Posted in Uncategorized on 01.10.15 by

It’s October, and that means its time for the 7th annual Creations for Charity fundraiser! Starting today, we will be accepting donations of custom Lego creations for our sale from October 15th to November 30th. As usual, 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.

When you contribute $20 or more to the fundraiser, you will receive a double-sided custom-printed brick. The front features “Creations for Charity 2015” and the back reveals part of a design that will become complete when you collect the bricks from any 3 consecutive years!

CfC 2015 thank-you gift

CfC 2014 gift
