The 2013 Brickset Charity Raffle

Posted by ,

Following the success of the raffle kevbags ran in September that raised £300 for a children's cancer ward, he's organising another, this time with loads of great hard-to-find LEGO prizes, and with proceeds being distributed to hospitals worldwide:

- Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, UK
- Glasgow York Hill, UK
- Indianapolis Peyton Manning St Vincent, USA
- Canberra Hospital Foundation, Australia.

Tickets cost just £1 (multiple tickets allowed), payment via PayPal to [email protected]. Please include your Brickset ID (main site or forum) in the comments and use 'I'm sending money to family or friends' or the 'gift' option so we are not throwing money away on fees.

Anyone can enter -- wherever you are in the world -- but you'll need a PayPal account which means you have to be over 18 (I believe).

Find out more in the forum, and good luck!

^Just add a bit on to cover the PayPal fees - that's what I did.

@diggydoes don't worry about that. Just add a little extra to cover the fee if you don't mind? I've a similar entry from another member based in Germany. He paid £6.50 and the fee was 45p. Therefore he received 6 tickets. Hope that helps :-)

I'm sorry if this has already been covered, but when does the raffle end?

By in United States,

Does BNIB stand for something new in box? That set at the end with zombies intrigues me but I'm not sure I know what it is. Regardless, it's a good cause and I might consider entering.

@Mcotter I'm not sure with you being under 16. Could you have a parent enter and include your Brickset ID? As far as I'm concerned I would love you to just enter yourself but we have to be conscious of any legal issues.

@MeckoGecko I said I would review the a closing date in up to ten days time after seeing how ticket sales were. Rest assured though this won't be dragging on for months. I want the sets purchased with tge proceeds asap.

For those that have not visited the forum if you check it now you will get an idea of how much has been raised so far.....

@ that guy from that show In this instance yes BNIB does indicate the box is new and sealed. The Zombies set is part of the Monster Fighters range and disappeared worldwide from store shelves before Christmas. It makes it a rare and difficult to find set. I believe in the US it was available from one retailer.

@Kevbags You are correct when you say The Zombies set was only available from one retailer in the United States. It was a Target exclusive, with that being said it was also available at the LBR stores for a very limited run and I believe just one shipment of them. It is a very difficult set to get in the states too.

This is one of the great lego community events. I will be sure to enter and make sure to get my friends to join as well. Good luck everyone!

By in United States,

As a AFOL Pediatrician in the US, I LOVE this idea. Would love to help coordinate this kind of event in the states. Let me know what I can do!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@DocDanCan I think you have already done it by entering :-) However if you would like to spread the word to work colleagues, family, friends etc then that would be wonderful :-)

This sounds great! One question - when is the closing date for entries?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Matthew Jam I'm looking to review a closing date in six days time after we have had a week of entries. Gives me a chance to guage how sales are going. Once decided I'll post here and in the forum. So you have at least one week.

Going over to paypal right now to buy tickets. It is heartwarming to have watched this raffle develop, with more and more people offering prizes. Well done to all involved, I hope you raise lots of money.
