Growing up, I was always passionate about being creative and making things with my hands. Therefore, I loved to use Legos to create a whole new world just by simple bricks. Now, as a high schooler, I know that the opportunities I had to create as a little kid have profoundly shaped who I am today. I want everyone to have this opportunity, regardless of their background. I started this fundraiser last year in response to COVID-19, which had especially hurt the little kids who didn't have the resources to continue to have fun and be creative during that difficult time. Seeing the impact of that effort and the joy that it brought to each classroom, I decided to continue with this fundraiser to be able to donate basic Lego sets to more students in need in the Boston area, and reach as many children as I can. The raised funds will allow young students to not only have fun but to also develop new skills that will help them right now as well as in the future.
Something as simple as a Lego set can do this. With these bricks, bridges can be created, bridges to allow students to cross over to a place of creativity.
The Lego set will be a 'Lego Classic' set which includes a variety of bricks so that children have the freedom to create whatever they want.
The idea is to give the Lego sets to the teachers so that they could provide them directly to their students. I have come to learn about a number of teachers who have been tirelessly working on getting the resources needed for their students. In some of their classrooms, over 75% of the children qualify for free lunch. Therefore, I want these Lego sets to be from the teachers themselves to boost an even tighter bond between them and the students.
Any amount helps. Thank you so much for taking part in helping the children in my community.
