Love Lego Bricks and a Challenge?
I just received an email from Global Giving about Lego’s Bricks for Good. You or I can buy Lego Bricks as a charitable gift. The bricks enable you, or a child you love, to build a replica of what you’re gift is for. A gift of $100, for example, brings you the gift of a Lego set to build a schoolroom. They say, “Your donation will go to support three incredible projects in Kenya, Guatemala, and India that are building schools and providing education to children.”
I love Lego. I bought lots of different sets for my two sons. I may have even given Lego to my daughter – I’ll have to ask her. The first sets were general, not designed to be something specific. I liked those best.
You might think about a charity challenge for Father’s Day, June 17. It could include Lego Bricks as a possibility.
How can you offer your child or grandchild the chance to challenge his or her dad?
1 – Show the child two or three charities and ask him/her to choose the one he/she likes best.
2 – Give him or her $10 or $20, even $50, to make a gift to the charity in honor of his/her dad.
3 – Tell him or her to challenge his/her dad to match the gift so the charity receives double!
4 – Dad can take the cash and use his credit card to make the gift of the doubled amount in his own name. Everybody wins.
