Bricks For Good
“Make a donation to get a custom, limited edition brick set to build a well, school, or tree using LEGO® elements.
Your donation supports projects that actually dig wells, build schools, and plant trees in Asia, Africa, & Latin America.
How Bricks for Good Works
GlobalGiving has designed three custom brick sets that build a well, a school, and a tree; each set is a free gift with a donation to the Bricks for Good Fund. Based on your selection, GlobalGiving will disburse your donation to top-performing projects in Africa, Latin America, and Asia that are focused on providing clean water, expanding basic education, and promoting reforestation.
There is no additional charge for shipping; shipping is only available within the United States. Your receipt will note what portion of your donation is tax-deductible in the United States.
Each Bricks for Good set includes all of the pieces required to build each set along with step-by-step instructions.”
How cool is that!
