Fourth Year B.Arch. student Rocco Buttliere has an opportunity to go to London this December to present his entire collection of LEGO Chicago building models at the BRICK 2015 conference. Student Access, Success, & Diversity Initiatives (SASDI) has paid for his flight and lodging, but Rocco needs to raise funds to cover the costs of shipping the Lego model collection.
Buttliere needs $5,500 for the models to be shipped round-trip. He will be reaching out to his family, friends, and professional contacts to find sponsorship. Currently, he has around 42 buildings with an estimated shipping cost of about $130 per model. Rocco has established a kickstarter fund to raise the outstanding shipping costs.
