In partnership with Fairy Bricks, BayLUG was able to donate over 200 new LEGO® sets to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco and Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera this last year.
“We were down to our last 3 boxes of LEGO®, but that definitely is not the case now. Thank you for the amazing connection to Fairy Bricks and a very generously sized donation,” said Cindy Kwong, Community and Volunteer Liaison for Child Life Services at UCSF.
Fairy Bricks is a U.K.-based charity that was founded in 2012 solely to give LEGO to children in hospitals and hospices. BayLUG began partnering with the organization in 2021 during the pandemic.
“It’s just great that we can help get LEGO into the hands of children who really love and appreciate it,” said Russell Clark, President of BayLUG. “We’re working with Kevin [at Fairy Bricks] to see if we can fundraise and donate to additional hospitals each year.”
If you would like to help expand the number of sets available to donate, please consider a gift of funds during BayLUG events.
