As we round out another year and head into the holidays season with dusting of snow and descend into the food comas with family and friends – one of the most important things I get to do during this time of year is Creations for Charity. It’s a great honour to be able to help children in need by donating some awesome LEGO sets that you all helped raise money for. For the second year running we choose the Toronto Children’s Aid Society, which which is the our equivalent of Child Protective Services as well as provide support and services to children and their families.
Again I wouldn’t be able to make this donation happen with my ever generous Present Elves: Eric L and Nick D – who were able to get 69 LEGO sets at deep discount topping off at just over 2,000 CAD!
This year Children Aid’s Society was very eager to have Creations for Charity involved again, as the feedback from the last year was phenomenal and made a substantial impact to their children. As always, LEGO is the most requested item from parents and is an infrequent donation, so a large LEGO donation is always a huge deal to everyone!
I’m also proud to say that again this year our donation exceeded the physical volume of my tiny car, again! And while I apologize for lack of LEGO-loaded Car pictures, I’m very happy to have to request help in transporting all this LEGO!
As always, none of this is possible without the generous donations and purchases by the AFOL community, You guys are so awesome, I don’t think you realize how big of a difference you really make to so many people around the world.
