ARE YOU 501C3 NON-PROFIT?
Not yet! This project was started as a teaching tool for my kids, and we never really envisioned it growing as it has. Logistically and financially we are not quite ready to take a leap to the 501c3 status. However, we have been fortunate to secure a fiscal sponsor for this project – Mercy Road Church – which means that your financial donations are tax deductible! You just need to make your checks out to Mercy Road Church, and put LEGO Project in the Memo line.
My girls have always loved LEGO and I wanted them to give something that was dear to them. Plus LEGO is the best, and only the best will do.
WHAT TYPES OF LEGO DO YOU COLLECT?
We collect new and used LEGO.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE USED LEGO?
Some of the LEGO is donated to local schools to be used in the classroom. Some LEGO is used in the LEGO Leadership workshop. And some is auctioned off on eBay to raise money to buy new LEGO sets to give away.
WHO RECEIVES THE LEGOS?
All LEGO sets go to kids ages of 6 – 15. 75% of these kids come from urban and underprivileged communities. We facilitate the distribution of the LEGO through partnerships with various community, religious and educational groups. Our largest number sets are donated to local Children Hospitals.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Collect used LEGO (No MegaBlocks or LEGO substitutes please!) and ship it to us.
Buy and ship us new LEGO sets. I recommend Amazon.com and Target.com for the best prices and free shipping.
Make it a service project for your group to collect used LEGO from your community.
