My name is Tomás and I was in charge of the distribution of the sets here at Chile. For the ones who don’t know where Chile is, it is located in South America. This is the second year I participate in this noble cause. Last year I decided to just gather funds so that the organization could give even more sets to those who need them but this year I decided to take it a step further and I brought the C4C spirit here to Chile.
With the help of Nannan and ALL of you guys a total of 71 sets were donated to the Cristo Vive foundation. Just like in Croatia we don’t really have a national program like Toys for Tots so I went off and donated the sets to a school that is run by the Cristo Vive foundation. This school is where almost 200 kids with low resources come to learn and discover the great things about life. It’s not like a school where you go in the morning and leave in the afternoon, no. They go there and stay pretty much all day there.
What’s nice and touching about this organization is the fact that they give children a better future even those with disabilities. Kids who suffer of mental or physical problem also come here and they are treated with a lot of love. When I told the organization that I wanted to give them LEGO sets they got really happy. As you may all know, LEGO is super fun and can be used to spend a good time with your friends but most importantly it stimulates creativity. I am sure that the kids will make good use of the sets to both learn and have a wonderful time.
Thank you all for being a part of this great organization. You have no idea how happy you have made many kids here in Chile. I am looking forward to this year’s Creations for Charity to see how we all get together and make this world a better place.
I hope you have a nice year and see you this December!
