THE STORY:

Play Well Africa wrote -

In rural Uganda, where many families and schools have no toys or learning tools, access to Lego can profoundly change a child’s life. The critical thinking skills developed through regular play with Lego helps kids who otherwise would only have sticks, mud, or trash to play with grow up to accomplish great things.

There are costs involved in getting the used Lego donations we receive to kids who need them. Given the impact on the lives of these children, the cost is actually quite low. 

A donation of $50 enables us to supply two children with a pound of Lego each. Lego never goes bad and will last their entire childhood as it is built into countless different creations.

A donation of $250 supplies a classroom with a 20lbs of assorted Lego, mini figures, and play mats, which hundreds of kids will have access to over time.

So far, your generosity has enabled us to bring Lego to more than 2,000 kids. With your gift, we can double that number in 2017.  Help us change as many lives as possible!

Thank you for supporting our fundraising campaign! We are a small, family-run non-profit and none of this is possible without your help. 

To donate Lego, go to playwellafrica.org.
