Donate LEGO toys this season! The world’s most popular toy has a universal appeal for boys and girls around the world. Hundreds of pounds were shipped to third world countries earlier this year, and lit up the lives of hundreds of children. BrickRecycler.com also donated countless boxes of mixed LEGO bricks to several foster child organizations, as well as to many libraries trying to get new programs off the ground. Some were even used in a short film!
Your pieces can have “multiple lives” of ahead of them, since they essentially never decompose. That is really awesome for “reuse” but not so good if they accidentally end up in curbside recycling bins, and are then sorted out and put in the landfill.
If you want to donate your LEGOs, simply send them to BrickRecycler.com and they will match your pieces up with those who have specific needs and just the right time. These pieces are amazingly durable. Simple packing tips can be found here.
If you are a non profit 501© corporation, and you need LEGOs or are doing a LEGO drive, contact them as well.
