Who We Are

About BrickDreams

A child’s dream is to play with bricks forever. A brick’s dream is to be played with forever. Our mission is to make both dreams come true.

BrickDreams is a charity that changes lives. We collect, clean, and redistribute LEGO bricks to children in need. Any and all LEGO is appreciated. We were founded on May 7, 2012.

One might ask, “Why LEGO bricks? Why not other toys?” It is because LEGO stimulates the mind. They allow children to learn, and use their imagination. It is possibly the only toy where a child of any age can build a car, then take it apart and build an airplane, a house, or whatever their imagination desires. Who wouldn’t want that for a kid?

Lleyton Rutz
My name is Lleyton Rutz and I am 12 years old.  I was excited to be asked to take over the charity Bailey began. I believe in BrickDreamsmission and I like the opportunity it gives me to communicate with adults and do good things for other kids.

Kyle Rutz
My name is Kyle Rutz and I am 12 years old.  I am excited too and think I can do a lot to make sure BrickDreams has all the tennis ball cans it needs.  I am a great LEGO sorter too!

Susan Rutz 
 I’m here to help my twin sons, Lleyton and Kyle, until they can run BrickDreams entirely on their own.

Bailey Snow, Founder
My name is Bailey Snow. I am 18 years old and a freshman at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California.  I can’t remember a time when I didn’t play with LEGO. When I started BrickDreams, my vision was for ALL kids to be able to experience LEGO as I did. I’m so happy and proud to give over the charity that I founded as a freshman in high school to the Rutz family! I know that Kyle and Lleyton will do a great job in reaching even more deserving kids than ever.
