I opened an email a couple weeks ago that just warmed my heart. It held me in a space of gratitude for this amazing gift we have all been given: the ability to use Creativity to help others.  I don’t waste an opportunity to speak about the breadth of Creativity; extending beyond the fine arts, this connection we have to a limitless pool of ideas encompasses every solution we conjure up to make a change, be the difference.

Five students from the University of British Columbia are doing just that.  Fuelled by their desire to generate funds for The Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, this heart-centred team created a project that will fulfill not only their class objectives, but will provide specialized care for those who need it.

And they are doing it with Lego!  I mean, come on!  Who doesn’t love a good Lego-building challenge?

The Vancouver Lego Gameswhich is set to be Canada’s largest charity Lego-building event – will take place on Sunday April 28, 2013 at Firefighter’s Club – 6515 Bonsor Ave., Burnaby, BC.

Ages 5 to adult can participate in their respective age categories and of course, they would love to have some encouraging spectactors attend as well!

Participants will be provided a theme at the event to which they have 15 minutes to create.  There is also the option of bringing in your own creation that fits in a 12″x12″ display.

I highly encourage you to check out their event day schedule, rules & regulations and extremely low entry fees.  ALL proceeds benefit terminally ill children at The Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

I had to share this with you because it falls right on my soul-upliftment radar and I hope it inspires you to tap into Creativity to positively affect others.

Vancouver Lego Games has generously offered 2 tickets of your choice (competitor/spectator and adult/child) which I am giving away here in the Rafflecopter draw below.  This giveaway is only open till Wednesday so don’t delay entering!  See you there!
