Creations For Charity Drawing To a Close, Needs Your Help

Postby Staff » Tue Nov 22, 2011 1:03 am





Nannan Zhang, blogger at the awesome The Brothers Brick site, does a charity drive called Creations for Charity every year. People donate MOCs, people buy MOCs, and the money raised is spent towards LEGO and donated to Toys For Tots. Last year, they sold 120 creations and raised $9,035 from sales and monetary donations and donated over $14,000 worth of LEGO sets along with a check for $723.00. It's a great cause and as of November 12, they've raised only $3000. I'm not sure what their dollar amount is now, but their deadline to sell through their inventory is November 30th. There are eight days left to help raise some money for a great cause, and you get a cool LEGO model to boot! You can browse the available MOCs for sale on the Creations for Charity store page.

Thanks for the mention! The low sales this year isn't exclusive to us; across Bricklink there's been a noticeable decline in Lego purchases this year. Hopefully that'll change for the better next year.
