In June, we received a letter from an AMAZING 7-year-old named Griffin Petti. He found out about BrickDreams and he decided to help our charity.
His school, Palm Beach Elementary School in Lake Clarke Shores, FL did a fantastic job of supporting him. A box was set up outside the art teacher’s classroom (also Griffin’s mom) to collect LEGO. The PE teacher collected empty tennis ball tubes for Griffin from nearby courts. In addition, the school’s art club created a Mondrian-inspired artwork made from LEGO and displayed it at the EG Squared Gallery – they used this platform to bring awareness to BrickDreams. Please see Griffin’s letter, photo and artwork displayed in the pictures below.
We are blown away by all of your efforts! All we have to say is: Griffin, YOU ROCK! Thank you so, so much!
Special thanks to the supportive staff, students who donated, and the art club at Palm Beach Elementary School in Lake Clarke Shores, Florida. It sounds like a wonderful, caring school filled with awesome, talented kids. Thanks also to the EG Squared Gallery for displaying the artwork for a month and thus introducing many to BrickDreams.
We plan to give your LEGO donation away at the end of August. We know that the kids receiving your donated LEGO will truly appreciate all of your hard work, and you will have made their lives much better.
Thank you very much.

On July 29th, 2015, BrickDreams was thrilled to be able to donate 8 pounds of DUPLO, some of it brand new, to the SAFE Center. They requested DUPLO for the youngest children they serve.
To date, because of the generosity of our donors, BrickDreams has given 751.5 pounds of LEGO to kids affected by domestic violence and/or felony abuse.

A huge thank you to Sharon and the McDaniel family who donated brand new DUPLO in honor of their nephew and brother. Thank you so much for your generosity.
A few days ago, we received an email from Sacramento’s SAFE (Special Assault Forensics Evaluation) Center requesting DUPLO for the youngest children they serve. We were so happy and honored to be able to deliver your donated DUPLO to them.
Thank you – you’ve helped the kids who will play with them so very much.

Thank you also to Alex’s mom, Corrine Aruelles Littles – we look forward to working with you over summer to spread awareness about BrickDreams!
A very belated thank you to Bill & Dorie Keifer, as well as their daughter Jennie. Bill and Jennie stopped by with a wonderful second LEGO donation to BrickDreams, and they graciously allowed us to take their photo. Bill is meticulous – all of the pieces were sorted and categorized! We have already donated some of your LEGO; some children are less stressed out because of your gift. Thanks, Keifer family!
