Creations For Charity : helping underprivileged children
Creations for Charity is an annual fundraising event to give new and official LEGO sets to underprivileged children during the holidays, which is organised by top MOCer Nannan.
The charity raises money by selling custom LEGO creations made by LEGO builders from all over the world.
Since 2009, they have raised about $17,000 and donated over 1,100 brand new LEGO sets to organisations like Toys for Tots, Make-A-Wish, and children's hospitals across multiple cities in the US.
This year, they are expanding their donations to two countries outside the US: Chile and Croatia, and they need a lot more funds to to make this happen.
So how can you help?
- Buy custom models and other donated items in the CfC BrickLink store
- Donate a model to be sold there
- If there's nothing there that takes your fancy, you can commission a model to be made just for you, or simply donate the sum of your choosing at Indiego. There are a number of incentives available, some of which are very cool indeed.
Find out more in the forum, or head on over to the official CfC site. This is a very worthy cause and I encourage you to, in Nannan's words, "Join the crowd and take part in the LEGO community's annual tradition of giving back!"
