Black Friday – Nothing to See Here

Black Friday

It’s that time of year again, when millions of soulless zombies descend on shopping malls around the world, or frantically click ‘buy’ from the comfort of their office chair, in an attempt to obtain something they hadn’t thought about owning until today.

As is traditional The Lego Car Blog won’t be taking part, and if you’d like to avoid the annual greed apocalypse too there are some great alternatives!

Creations for Charity 2017

The wonderful Creations for Charity 2017 is in full swing, where you can buy unique fan-built Lego creations from which the proceeds are used to provide LEGO toys to underprivileged children. Visit the Creations for Charity store by clicking here and do something amazing this Black Friday!

We can also recommend Oxfam, Christian Aid, The Red Cross, Unicef and Tearfund, and finally just by being here you’re doing some good too, as the revenue raised by the adverts on this site is donated to causes worthier than ourselves (which isn’t hard!), so if an advert interests you please click it, your visits really do make a difference!

Black Friday – Nothing to See Here

Lego Zombie

Black Friday is upon us once again, that unique time of year when people are willing to trample their fellow man to death to secure a discount on an electrical appliance. We hate Black Friday.

As has become traditional, unlike the proper Lego blogs we’re not taking part in the annual greed apocalypse, and instead we’re offering some alternatives to help you to avoid becoming just another mindless, soulless zombie with an unquenchable thirst for acquiring ever more pointless landfill.

Lego Creations for Charity

The awesome Creations for Charity campaign is back for another year, with some incredible fan-built models available to buy and where all proceeds are used to provide LEGO sets for underprivileged children. There’s just one week to go – to see what’s available and make a real difference to a child this Christmas visit the Creations for Charity 2016 page here.

Oxfam, Tearfund, Christian AidUnicef

Finally of course, just by being here you’re doing a little bit of good. All profits generated from the advertising you see here at The Lego Car Blog are donated to those who need them more than we do, including the charities above and also at a more local level around TLCB Towers. A huge thank you for your clicks – they mean the world to us.

Black Friday: Nothing to See Here

Lego Brick

Black Friday, that unique time of year when people are willing to stab one another over a discounted television, is upon the world again today.

As TLCB will not be taking part we’d like to offer you some neat alternatives to help you avoid getting into a fight over something you didn’t even know you wanted at Walmart.

Lego Creations for Charity

Creations for Charity; A brilliant annual event giving you the opportunity to buy unique creations built by some of the world’s best builders, with all funds raised used to buy LEGO toys for underprivileged children. If you’re going to buy something today, buy it from the Creations for Charity 2015 store.

Christian Aid, Tear Fund, Oxfam, The Red Cross

…and many more.

You’re also doing something good just by visiting this website. We don’t allow many advertisements to appear here at TLCB, but the revenue generated by those that do is not used here. Blogging is a privilege – we love sharing the web’s best Lego vehicles and helping to bring recognition to the builders behind them – so we don’t need to keep the revenue that this site earns. Instead this is used for a variety of good causes, from simply buying meals for those who are homeless around TLCB Towers to assisting in international disaster relief.

Your clicks are amazing.

From all of us at TLCB, thank you.

Be A Hero

Creations for Charity

Creations For Charity 2015 donations are now open!

The awesome people over at Creations for Charity raise thousands of dollars each year to provide LEGO sets to underprivileged children at Christmas, through the auctioning of incredible one-off Lego creations. But first they need creations to auction.

Lego C4C

If you’re a talented Lego-builder and if you think you have a creation, or could make a creation, that people would love to buy, then get in touch with the Creations for Charity Team and be a hero this Christmas.

Douchbaggery

You might also restore some balance to a LEGO-selling culture that is for the most part, full of blatant douchbaggery (see above, and that price isn’t even in Dollars…).

You can donate your own creation, and see some of the models already donated, by clicking this link to Creations for Charity 2015. Let’s help them raise more than those douchebags want for that Millennium Falcon!

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.

Creations for Charity 2012

Every year Creations for Charity invite you to help raise money to provide LEGO toys for children in need around the world. This wonderful annual event gives you the chance to buy custom LEGO MOCs from some of the most talented builders in the LEGO Community. You’ll become the owner of a unique and brilliant creation, and all proceeds are used to bring happiness and joy, in the form of our favourite toy, to children who otherwise would not get anything to play with this Christmas. LEGO is the perfect toy for such children as it can be played with for years without breaking, without needing batteries, and without age limits or gender associations.

You can participate in two ways; by bidding for a unique MOC, or by donating a MOC to Creations for Charity yourself. The Lego Car Blog wish Creations for Charity every success with this year’s fundraiser.
