Raise your hand if you still play with toys. Anyone?? 

Don’t be shy – we’re right there with you. We think you’re never too old to play. Playing helps shape the way kids - and grown-ups - see and interact with the world. 

We know that playing is fun, but what if playing could also help make the world a better place? That’s the idea behind Bricks for Good: by building something using LEGO® bricks, you can actually change the world. 

Donate $100 to build a school

This is a custom-designed brick set that’s modeled after a real school in India, complete with students, teacher, and chalkboard. By making a donation for $100 to support education projects in India, Kenya, and Guatemala, you’ll receive 143 bricks of earth-changing delight to build this school. 

Donate $50 to build a well

Maybe you’re passionate about clean water. You can donate $50 to provide permanent access to safe, clean water for ten people, and you’ll receive a custom brick set representing an actual well in Twifu, Ghana. 

Donate $150 to plant trees

Feel like more of a nature buff? Donate $150 to restore several acres of forest and get a brick set to build an enormous tree inspired by a real one in the Peruvian Amazon.

Simply by taking time to play – with your kids, with your parents, even all by yourself – you’ll provide education, clean water, or new trees somewhere in the world. Translation: best excuse ever to make time to play! 

Let’s change some lives and have some fun.
