September is National Leukemia Awareness month, the perfect time to put a smile on the face of a child, that is suffering from Leukemia. Legos for Leukemia is an organization that was started by a young man whose father died of cancer, while in the hospital he spent many hours building Legos with his father. After his father passed, he decided that it would be great to collect Legos for kids that were stuck in the hospital, in his father's honor. This organization is based purely on volunteer participation.
Unfortunately, Legos contacted organization and told them that they could no longer use the word "legos" in their logo, so while we will still be collecting Legos, the name will be changing; I believe that the new name will be "Bricks for the Brave." The hospitals that will be receiving the Leogs are St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, in Boise, Idaho and the Children's Hospital in Phoenix.
Jacob, aka “The Leukemia Slayer” is a young man that has been battling leukemia for several years. He has taken it upon himself to collect gifts many times throughout the year and is such an ambassador of good will, that you may like to become his fan! He is a fabulous inspiration to young and old! He has been battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) since December 2, 2010 and will be in treatment until March of 2014. Please stop by and become a fan; you will be glad that you did!
Anyway, back to Legos for Leukemia; there are three easy was you can join me.
1. Purchase a set of Legos and either drop it off, or mail it to me.
2. Purchase a gift card from either Walmart or Target and mail it to me; I will shop for you!
3. Shop at Amazon and have your choice sent directly to me; many of the Lego sets offer Prime Shipping at no charge. I put a few suggestions here: Legos for Leukemia
As you can see, shopping online would probably be the easiest way for you to join my Legos for Leukemia drive. The kids and I appreciate all of you donations!
Thank you, in advance:
Please send Legos to:
