Remember I told you a couple of week ago about the Christmas LEGO charity drive? The LEGO Group has pledged to donate up to 1 million LEGO toys to the US Marine Corps’ Toys-for-Tots program this year, and they are asking the LEGO-fan community to help.
All you have to do is send a Christmas LEGO holiday greeting-card from LEGO’s website to your family, friends, enemies… whoever you want! For every Christmas LEGO greeting-card sent, LEGO will donate one gift to Toys-for-Tots. The catch is that the recipient will need to open the email and watch the funny LEGO Star Wars holiday greeting for it to count towards the charity drive. So far 393,755 LEGO toys have been given! But we are still far from a million, and there are only a few days left! 🙁
This is probably the easiest way you can participate in a worthy cause this Christmas season! And it doesn’t cost you a dime! Only the time to send someone a LEGO Christmas greeting-card. That’s right; just send out as many greeting-cards as you can to help!
Would you like to participate? Here is what you need to do:
➡ Go to the LEGO Santa Yoda website: legosantayoda.com
➡ Pick one of the three LEGO Star Wars holiday greeting-cards.
➡ Fill in your friend/family member’s name and email address. Fill in your name and email address. Write a short greeting. Hit send and you are done!
➡ Go back to the beginning, and repeat as many times as you can. Remember; each Christmas LEGO greeting-card equals one gift from the LEGO Group to children less fortunate.
So please help out and spread the
joy Force this holiday season! Let’s make it to 1 million greetings! Here is the second LEGO Christmas holiday greeting-card video to get you in the mood of the holidays. You can see the first video at the previous announcement. 😉
There is also a contest at the LEGO Santa Yoda site and a fun poll you might want to check out while you are there. Happy Holidays!
I’ve been sending this to everyone I can think of. I’m about to start on coworkers. Hopefully everyone will send it on to at least one person and we can get a really positive chain going. 🙂
Thanks, Sarah! You can send me more too! I will open them! 😉
I think I read somewhere, probably on Eurobricks, that LEGO was limiting it on being sent to unique email addresses, or something like that. I think they were getting spammed and that’s not what they wanted. This obviously is good advertising so they actually want to get messages sent to 1 million people, not a couple thousand fanatics sending it out over and over.
Sarah, it must have been on FBTB. Someone actually set up a bot to send greeting cards to participating FBTB members. They were just enthusiastic to help giving away 1 million LEGO toys, but that’s not what LEGO had in mind. At least bots sending out greeting cards was not part of their plan. 🙄
Now you can send only one greeting card from one IP address to another. This makes the whole process much more real, and a lot harder to reach 1 million. 😉
