Building Real-World Good

Thank you very much for your generous donation to the Bricks for Good Fund. I'm pleased to share that over the last several months we've sold more than 130 Bricks for Good sets and have disbursed $8,255 to the nine projects that benefit from this fund.

Build a Well
The purchase of the "Well" kit has raised $2,320 in funding for water projects in Ghana, Haiti, and China. As a result, 90 school children will now have access to clean water in Ghana, we've helped purchase part of a chlorinator system and chlorine tablets for schools in Haiti, and we're helping support efforts to bring clean drinking water to children's hospitals and orphanages in China.

Build a School
The purchase of the "School" kit has raised $2,470 funding for education projects in Kenya, Guatemala, and India. Your support will buy desks and other supplies for a school in Kenya (which was recently featured on NPR's All Things Considered), will buy books for a school library in Guatemala, and will buy school supplies for an entire classroom for a year in India.

Build a Tree
The purchase of the "Tree" kit has raised $3,465 in funding for environmental projects in Madagascar, Peru, and India. Due to your generosity, we've helped purchase 400 trees to help reforest a village in Madagascar, protect 4 acres of Peruvian rainforest, and will help renovate a water harvesting structure for a sacred grove in India.

Thank You
Thank you again for your generous support. We hope that you've enjoy building your sets and seeing the good you've helped build in the world. Please let us know if you have any feedback on the sets or this project in the comment.

Happy building,
Kevin Conroy
