"We Are One" is a CSR Project between LEGO Singapore, Capitaland, and Mediacorp. The point of this project is to raise at least S$1 Million for charity. To raise that much money, people are encouraged to donate S$2 for a 2X2 brick. The amount of bricks collected would be used to construct a 5 meter by 8 meter Singapore Island. The amount of money collected from this project will be channeled to families affected by the economic downturn.
About this creation
Here is an overview of the whole thing. Its really big. Scattered around the island are LEGO Models depicting some of Singapore's well-known icons.
And here are some closer pictures of the LEGO Island.
People were also given a chance to make a LEGO patch. People could pledge an amount of money to any of the patches and they would be displayed next to the LEGO Island(the patches, not the people)
Here is a big cardboard brick that was placed in different malls to inform people about the event.

And last but not least, a picture of me and my brother with the island. Today was the last day for people to look at it. It would be dismantled the next day. I was lucky enough to see it on its last day. Thank You for looking at this and please, always help the less fortunate.
