Have your kids outgrown their Lego?
If you’ve got a box of the famous bricks taking up space in your shed, an important children’s charity is promising to find them a very good home.
With the help of DPD Ireland, the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation is asking you to root out any unwanted LEGO in your home and donate it so it can turn bricks into funding to support its vital in-home nursing care service.
Families, pre-schools, and schools across the country can donate their unwanted LEGO to Jack and Jill, who will re-sell it in 1kg bags in one of the charity’s 12 Charity Boutiques to raise money to fund its in-home respite and nursing care for 400 families across Ireland.
Every €18 raised through the LEGO drive will cover the cost of one hour of home nursing care for a local Jack and Jill family.
You don’t need to have a complete LEGO set to donate your bricks, loose LEGO is gladly accepted – from figures, to bricks big or small. It just has to be LEGO brand – no other brick will do.
Once you’ve gathered your LEGO donation, simply put it in a bag or box, label it ‘Jack and Jill LEGO Drive’ and drop it to your nearest DPD depot – find the depot closest to you at jackandjill.ie/events/lego with 35 depots around the country.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a stocking filler and want to support Jack and Jill’s Home for Christmas Appeal by buying a LEGO stash of pre-loved bricks this Christmas, a 1kg bag costs just €10 in Jack & Jill’s Charity Boutiques.
