LET'S MAKE LEGO SETS FOR KIDS WHO NEED THEM.

My name is Charlie Jeffers, and I believe that every kid deserves access to play and learning tools, and no one does that better than LEGO. 

 

Welcome to the biggest LEGO rebuild ever.

HOW IT WORKS

Pass the Bricks has a simple process. We collect used LEGO bricks, sanitize and sort them, design “new” sets and distribute them to kids who wouldn’t normally have access to them – either directly or through nonprofit partners.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a widespread behavior change so that every used LEGO brick is seen as an opportunity to help kids in need.

Get involved!

There are three ways to get involved: donate used LEGO bricks, volunteer with some of the steps, or become a Pass the Bricks ambassador.

Ambassadors are what we call the individuals, families, organizations and schools doing Pass the Bricks in their cities. This means they're collecting and cleaning used bricks, building and packaging "new" sets, and figuring out how to get them to kids who don't have access to them. We have a growing list of ambassadors in 128 cities across the world! We’re so grateful for all of them. 

 

If you have used LEGO bricks to donate, or want to volunteer to help, please contact the ambassador that’s closest to you. Here is our current list of ambassadors (we update this frequently, so please continue to check back):

Testimonials

This is so fun and thoughtful. I was a kid whose parents couldn’t afford many toys so this is not only awesome, but I was “the” kid who wished.
