2019 fundraiser wrap-up

Posted in Uncategorized on 12.01.20 by

The 11th Creations for Charity fundraiser has concluded with $16,400 raised and many Lego sets donated to underprivileged children in eight cities across the world. What has started as a humble effort by a group of builders to donate Lego sets to kids in need has grown into an annual tradition for Lego fans all over the world to give back during the holidays through a creative outlet. With the help of our donors, buyers, and volunteers, we donated Lego to diverse locations including hospitals, orphanages, schools, and other places helping children with disabilities, from low-income families, and even refugees. You can read about each city’s donation story and see more photos in our December 2019 and January 2020 post archives.

We are in grateful for the continued donations from Brickworld and Bricklink. This year, we also received a donation of over $1,000 from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Residence Hall Association, which organized a competitive event to see which of their residence halls can raise the most money for charity. Finally, the 24-hour live stream presented by Beyond the Brick was again a highlight for many as Joshua Hanlon and Kevin Hinkle fought off sleep to entertain and build with us and help raise another $2,500. This was always a fun way for fans to build together over the web, and you can rewatch all 24 hours of the live-stream on Beyond the Brick’s YouTube channel.

Going forward, it is my goal to continue the fundraiser each year as an all-volunteer non-profit organization. While much has changed for me personally in the last decade between when I first started Creations for Charity as a college student to now working full-time and raising a family, organizing the fundraiser is still as fun and rewarding as it has been since the beginning. We are always looking for more volunteers to help us donate Lego sets in more cities especially in Asia, so send me a message via our contact form if you want to hear more. We hope to see you again in next year’s fundraiser!
