We're still collecting donations

On the 26th May 2020 we'd raised £172 with 5 supporters in 41 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for  millions of people and there are many children, families and work teams that are isolated, looking for a way to connect and enjoy their time inside.

In our standard day-to-day business, we work with children, families, schools and businesses in improving communication and team building skills.

We use a lot of Lego-based activities to help people connect, create and communicate.

We want to make these activities available for all, virtually. We have started to make videos and downloadable activities and post them up on our YouTube channel (alphaic) and our website (, however as a completely independent business, who doesn't receive grants or funding, we are keeping a close eye on our budgets at this time. 

For us to be able to continue to make these activities and resources, we need some help! We have some staff that would be furloughed but we'd like to keep them making great activities and resources for all!

The videos and downloads will remain free for all - we're just asking that if you enjoy and use them, and if you are able to, we'd appreciate whatever you can donate to our project.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
