Creations for Charity 2017 Begins!

Creations for Charity 2017 now accepting donations

On October 1st, Creations for Charity founder Nannan Zhang shared the news that they are now accepting donations of LEGO creations for the LEGO charity program! For those unfamiliar with the program, Creations for Charity accepts donations of LEGO MOC's built by builders from all around the world, and sells them online. All the money raised from the selling of these MOC's goes towards purchasing LEGO sets for children in multiple countries. This year in particular, they are planning to make sure those areas affected by the recent natural disasters in the U.S. receive some new LEGO sets! If you're at all interested in donating a MOC of your own, you can check out this page here to find out how. Can't wait to see how much the project can raise this year! Remember, it all starts with you and your donations!

Time to be a hero everyone!

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
