The company organized this event on occasion of the holiday season. The aim of the independent toy company Click-A-Brick was to offer an opportunity for children to play with toys and interact with Santa Claus. This is in line with the company’s mission to provide great experiences for children.
The event took place during the morning of Friday, December 4th, 2015. The representatives from Click-A-Brick arrived at the hospital with a multitude of toy sets. Alongside them was Santa Claus with a red sack. The employees of the company and Santa Claus proceeded to distribute toys to all of the available children.
Afterwards, the children had the opportunity to interact with the representatives from Click-A-Brick. They engaged in a half hour of free play, assembling items from the different sets and participating in different activities. The Click-A-Brick employees on hand were Javier Hernando and Samantha Cumpton. The Co-Founder of Click-A-Brick, Georg de Gorostiza, was also present to oversee the event.
The Co-Founder of Click-A-Brick, Jason Smith, remarked on the rationale behind the charity event. “It’s one of our guiding principles,” Smith said. “We’re more than just a toy company. We’re an organization that’s vested in the potential and promise of children. Our mission has always been to provide great experiences for kids, cultivate important lifelong skills and foster independent thinking and action. We accomplish that through our toy lines and through events like this one. It’s not the first of its kind and it definitely won’t be the last.”
Georg de Gorostiza, Co-Founder of Click-A-Brick, commented on his experience during the event. “It was such a gratifying experience,” de Gorostiza said. “The children had a great time. We had a great time. We were able to provide them with some joy and cheer for the holidays. Seeing their faces light up while they played with the toy sets was incredibly gratifying. And I say that not as the founder of Click-A-Brick, but as a parent and as a person who believes that children deserve great experiences, no matter where they may be.”
