If your kiddos are always hungry for new and unique LEGO sets, you have a chance to indulge them and make a helpful difference by purchasing a LEGO set through Bricks for Good. Bricks for Good is a program through GlobalGiving where you can purchase a specific LEGO set depending on what sort of charity programs you’d like to support. Each LEGO set available at Bricks for Good is a custom, limited edition brick set, and although the project isn’t associated with the LEGO company, the sets, which are independently designed, purchased, and packaged by GlobalGiving stack up to a ton of fun. The following sets are available:
- Build a LEGO well and bring clean water to people in Ghana, Haiti, and China.
- Build a LEGO school and educate children in Kenya, Guatemala, and India.
- Build a LEGO tree and help plant trees and restore forests in Madagascar, Peru, and India
If $50-$150 seems steep for a LEGO set, remember, this is more than a LEGO set, it’s a charity organization. Your donation for each LEGO set will support clean water, education, and reforestation projects — and in some cases your donation will go to support vital project-related costs including water purification systems, textbooks and gardeners’ salaries. It’s a clever program for families to invest in because it offers kids a new LEGO set, but also teaches them about health and environmental issues around the world, not to mention the beauty of giving back to others in need.
