Here’s How Southeast Minnesota Families Can Donate Old LEGOs to Kids in Need
There's a really cool program LEGO set up called LEGO Replay. If you have LEGOs at your house that your kids don't play with anymore, LEGO Replay is a way to donate those LEGOs to kids in need. Families in southeast Minnesota and across the country and participate.
When I was growing up my brother and had one if not two massive boxes of LEGOs. I'm not sure what my parents ended up doing with all of those LEGOs, but if they were just as popular with your kids as they were with my brother and me, you'll have plenty to donate.
It's super easy to donate. You just have to pack up the LEGOs in a box, print off the free shipping label from the LEGOs website (HERE), and ship it out. That's it! You don't even have to clean the LEGOs or sort them, employees will sort through and clean all of the LEGOs before they go out to kids.
You can donate any types of LEGOs: small bricks, large bricks, or Duplo, it doesn't matter! Right now, LEGO is working with Teach for America and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
According to LEGO's website, so far 11,545 boxes of LEGOs have been donated, or 300,000 pounds of LEGOs. This equates to 42,350 kids that are playing with LEGOs donated through LEGO Replay.
