Why I give back:
You have probably heard from many different sources and directed studies that LEGO is one of the most popular toys ever created, not only in the U.S., but across the globe. Not only is playing with LEGOs great fun, but it has been proven in many studies to help children develop in a variety of different capacities, across many varied disciplines.
Because LEGO has been such an important part of my life, I want to share the gift of LEGO with more children throughout the world. I dontate a portion of the proceeds of this site directly to several carefully chosen organizations. If you wish to join me in giving back, you may do so below. Thank you!
The First LEGO League (FLL) of Utah:
The First LEGO League teaches children to develop technical skills and provides fun and unique opportunities for learning and working cooperatively in groups. Children team up to solve problems as they build and program robots. Through friendly competition and innovation, children learn to adapt quickly to new and different situations.
Children in hospitals:
As an Eagle Scout, I completed a project where I collected money and toy donations for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA. I will never forget the look of joy on the young patients' faces as they got to selects a brand new toy from the "Rainbow Box".
In a similar way, a portion of the proceeds of this site will go toward providing new LEGO sets to children who need to stay in the hospital for an extended period of time. LEGOs help to cheer up the young patients and are hypo-allergenic for those who are immune- compromised.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO DONATE:
If you have been inspired by LEGOS or by my enthusiasm for them, you can donate to one of the two causes above or to my upcoming projects to build the other remaining Temple Square structures, including, but not limited to, The Tabernacle, The Assembly Hall, the LDS Church Office Building and more!
