Donate a LEGO set today

Posted by ,

SirKevbags, who runs the charity FairyBricks, has launched a Christmas appeal:

"A small Christmas event for Fairy Bricks was always on the agenda but with the current fantastic Amazon prices I would like to launch a donate-a-set drive today. It will enable people to donate a set at a fantastic price and not have to worry about delivery charges. The prime recipient would be http://www.bluebellwood.org/ which is a childrens' hospice based in Sheffield but covering all of South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and parts of North Lincolnshire.

"Of course other places could be added if the amount of donations demands it! Couldn't be more simple. Drop me a line kev [at] fairybricks.org, ask for my address and send over a set. Big or small the choice is yours. Maybe club together with friends if you wanted something bigger? Unless they are amazing bargains then licenced themes are best avoided with other themes offering better value! Think City, Creator, Friends, Duplo etc.

"As an incentive, if we get to the point where another place is needed, I promise to let my beard return to STEAM proportions and wear a fairy costume to hand these sets over. The Hairy Fairy will be brought to life. So make a child smile and make a fool out of me? What are you waiting for!"

For non forum readers, just to let you know another incentive has been added. Caroline at http://minifigs.me/ has told me that everyone that makes a donation will be included into a draw to win one of her fantastic custom minifigs!

Bluebell Wood Hospice is about two miles from my home and I can whole heartedly endorse the excellent work that they do with extremely ill children. I'll definitely be supporting this (and will encourage other members of my LUG, Brickshire, to do the same). Nice one Kev.

^^^ Why would you be getting weird looks for supporting an extremely worthwhile charity?

Also posted in the forum but I appreciate not everyone reads there.

Just to keep everyone in the loop because we all love an update :-) Sets approaching £600 and counting in value are now at my house or Castle Minifigsme. 

Thank you and virtual high fives all round. Or a more traditional handshake if you prefer :-)
