grum64 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingMy Fellow Eurobrickers I’ve been a member of Eurobricks for almost 9 years. That’s 9 years of me rambling on about something I’m building or leaving less than imaginative comments about other people’s. Oh how time flies when you’re having fun. I’ve said many times that Eurobricks is the friendliest place on the ‘net and I stand by that (OK, so stand wasn’t the best choice of words but sit just didn’t sound right ). In my time here I’ve made many good friends and have received a great deal of support and much kindness. One such act of kindness came from Jeroen Ottens who contacted me a few months ago with what can only be described as an extraordinary offer. To design and build a model of my choosing. To say I was blown away is an understatement. As it came completely out of the blue and because for the life of me I couldn’t think what I’d done to warrant such an offer I dismissed it as a hoax but after an exchange of messages Jeroen convinced me the offer was indeed genuine. After a great deal of thought and knowing the enormous amount of time & effort that would be involved, I declined the offer. It was simply too much. Jeroen however, wouldn’t take no for an answer so I decided that this most unexpected offer, so very generous in its giving, could be made to benefit more than just myself so I said yes but on condition that the completed model be auctioned and 100% of the proceeds be given to the Fairy Bricks charity. Jeroen agreed. For those that don’t know, Fairy Bricks is a wonderful charity that raises money to enable them to buy LEGO sets and donate them to children’s hospices and hospitals. You can find out more about them here: www.fairybricks.org All this was several months and many, many emails ago but I’m pleased to say that the design & building of the model is now complete. I think it’s a beautiful build and something Jeroen should be very proud of. The auction is now live Pagani Huayra BC Charity Auction
Hi all, I know there are only a few Eurobricks members who are also active on Youtube, but I thought I would post my latest project which I'm undertaking with the TubeLUG group. The project is to build a Lego mosaic of a daisy flower, which will be auctioned off for charity. All money raised will be donated to 3 charities supporting children with bone cancer. If you would like to know more about this project, click on the video below: Thanks for taking the time to watch this video. Mike 3 Brick Friends .
So I'm sure we are all aware of the ongoing 'ice bucket' challenge. I have noticed many people have been nominating others from the Lego fan community to do this challenge, so I was wandering: how should we nominate Eurobricks users? Should we PM other users or have a topic?
I did a quick search on Eurobricks to make sure I was not double posting. Like Crowkillers past Charity auctions I believe this auction needs to be recognized as well. Please visit the link and show your support. http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1423.l2649
