The latest in a conga line of lego donaters has been Penelope (not running as a candidate), who has cruelly harvested her daughter’s toybox to help out.
For those coming in late there’s two things going on here:
- 1) We need donations of Lego (or Lego contributed for return on a by-the-kilogram basis as we don’t plan to separate them back out again)
2) So we can then spend August and September in the pub watching ACT election candidates trying to make the most impressive possible creation with the available bricks.
Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
It should be noted we’re not doing one giant sit down with all the candidates at once (fun as that could be) but a series run over many nights with a YouTube video of what they make and what comes of it.
We’re certainly encouraging candidates to get in and donate the pieces they’re wanting to see when they sit down with the big box of Lego.
(Yes we realise clever candidates are getting good cheap publicity out of this. This is not a problem as we aim to encourage clever candidates)
So far the donating tally is Two Liberal, Two Labor, Two members of the public (Thank you Ayrton and Penelope), and no Greens or minor parties.
Yet. We’ll let you know!
