“My name is Matthew and for as long as I can remember I always loved using LEGOs, whether I was building a figure or just having fun. I always enjoyed the feeling of excitement I get after build something amazing. I wanted to lead this project to share my love of building with LEGOs with kids who may not have access to them.”
We create fun afternoons of building and designing with Legos kids that might not have an opportunity to work with Legos. At all of our events we have thousands of donated legos of all sizes. Sometimes, we even do a raffle at the end of the event to make it extra exciting for the kids. We work with kids at the Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Martin Luther King Apartments and more. Please contact us if you want to lead our next one!
How it started: Jeff G started this project in 2015 because he always liked building LEGOs with his older brother, TJ, when he was younger. “TJ would help me figure out how to put them together. I want kids to enjoy building Legos like I used to and I know how expensive they are so I decided to start Launching Legos. I invited everyone to donate their gently used legos and then we shared them with kids that can’t afford to buy them. It was incredible for all of us.”
