Stop The Massacre

Lego Stop Sign

Occasionally here at TLCB we dip into current events – if the seriousness of these dictates. Sadly the ongoing bombardment of Gaza is one of these times.

Most of you reading TLCB today are visiting from America, and we know that for many of you Israel is an emotive and politically charged issue. However, we do think that as we’re relatively neutral, we might be able to be a little more balanced than Fox News Propaganda elects to be.

TLCB readers in need:

What has the Gaza conflict got to do with LEGO? Not much. However, we are a global blog with readers from all over the world, including (according to our stats) both Israel and the State of Palestine. This means that someone will be reading this – a LEGO fan just like you – who will today, maybe even right now, hear the sound of a Hamas missile launching, or will need to run for their life from an Israeli airstrike in the State of Palestine.

As of today 1,300 civilian Palestinians (hundreds of whom are children) have been killed by the Israeli bombardment of Gaza. Many more will lose their power, water, medical treatment or next meal due to the blockade on their city – in which they are trapped and cannot flee.

Your clicks help!

If you are reading this from either side of the the Gaza-Israel wall, our thoughts are with you. To our readers from around the world; please remember that on both sides of this conflict somewhere there will be a LEGO fan just like you.

To see if you can help please join us at The Red Cross, Christian Aid, or Oxfam (amongst many others), which is where the advertising revenue generated by your visit here will be donated. To find out more about our not-for-profit policy please click here.

    In future posts, maybe you can do a better job of sounding like it. Making snarky jabs at Fox news makes you seem decidedly non-neutral. Also, just because I’m an American doesn’t mean I’m oblivious or incapable of keeping up with current events.
    I wouldn’t care about this, but I’m a LEGO fan and I usually enjoy TCLB. I just don’t want to see disparaging political commentary, veiled though it may be.

      Hello PJ

      Thanks for stopping by.

      We are aware this is a risky topic, but nevertheless we feel it’s right to declare where our earnings will be going during this time. This may lose us some readers, but that’s ok.

      If you decide to stick with us your clicks will be generating revenue for those (on both sides) affected by the current crisis, which includes readers of this blog.

      All the best

      TLCB Team
