Thank you Brian Foo of Bricks for Bricks who made BrickDreams the beneficiary for the last six months. That’s right, Brick for Bricks is a for-profit business focused on giving back a portion of it profits to those in need. BrickDreams is always in need of bricks for the mix of Lego in the cans so Mr. Foos generously sent us a whole bunch. Thank you again for your generosity.
We were fortunate to receive a large donation from the Rogers Family of Granite Bay, CA with so many Lego pieces to make great creations by BrickDreams recipients. One of those pieces is a mini-fig or mini-figurine by Lego. BrickDreams places one complete mini-fig in each can we donate and they are not always easy to come by. We sort the them and remove any weapons. Thank you Rogers family for your donation filled with mini-figs to add to our supply!
To say we are grateful for the donations that arrive in our PO box is an understatement. Our youth leaders are excited to find them when they arrive. This week, the Hogarth family’s donation arrived an was immediately sorted and distributed to one of our local partner agencies. They were also as excited as we were. Thank you Hogarth family of Stratford, CT.
BrickDreams would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Hunt family for their recent donation of many Lego bricks. Bricks are key in building foundations with Lego and aren’t always easy to come by. They are great to put into our cans to ensure lots of great creations can be made. Thank you Hunt family!
BrickDreams was excited to support our Yolo County partners as they actively use their donations to truly support the kids. A large SUV was filled to the brim with cases of Legos for the following agencies. 14 cases in total! Thank you so much for supporting our charity.

A delayed, but big thank you to Mr. Kessler of Texas. These large boxes arrived filled with Legos. Those pictured on top are just a sample of what was inside. What a great collection! And not only were Legos included but K’nex and Erector sets too that we’ll be able to gift to a couple of our community partners that can use them on site. Thank you again Mr. Kessler for your generous donation. BrickDreams will be able to make immediate use of them.
Summer time is here and the BrickDreams elves are busy. It’s time to update everyone on recent and very special donations that have come in. The Rubin family of Florida has a tradition of building Lego sets. To teach their child about giving to those in need, they have and will continue to gift BrickDreams not only the set they build, but a new set as well. BrickDreams will in turn gift both sets to those in need and we’ll use our network of community partners to help us place them where they can truly be used. What a great chain of giving. Thank you Rubin family now and in the future!
We love how we are granted donations in the most surprising ways. At a recent 4-H meeting, the Singh family presented BrickDreams with a box full of sorted and packed Lego for donation. We had no idea they were planning that. Thank you Lucas for thinking of BrickDreams and taking the time to help us in a way that all those cans are ready right now to be given to kids in need.
We recently received a very special donation. A 12 year girl wished to gather donations to BrickDreams instead of being given gifts for her birthday. Part of her birthday celebration was to see the Lego Batman. The generous donations of her and her friends seemed to be a perfect match. And boy her friends were generous – new Lego, Lego containers, and mini-fig display cabinets. It was a big box filled with so much. BrickDreams volunteers recently prepared Zuzu’s donation and everyone was touched by her thoughtfulness and kind nature. Thank you so much for thinking of us. Everything you sent will be put to great use.
A wonderful surprise was delivered by the Adedi Family – 5 boxes of donated Legos! We greatly appreciate you thinking of us and making such a generous donation to our charity. These Legos will be sorted and packed in short order and will be in the hands of our partners soon. Thank you again for supporting our charity.
