Lucas Nelson is suffering from leukemia, representing a lot of kids dealing with tough stuff. What Lucas is going through is so negative, but he wants it to be turned into something positive. Many kids don’t have what we have, and Lucas wants to make kids happy. That’s why Lucas started this project to give legos to orphan children.
YOUR GROUP GOAL: Put legos in the hands of orphan children so they can enjoy Legos, some for the very first time.
Why & How? Because Lucas loves Legos, and they open a door to creativity, social play, and fun-filled education. Distribute gallon sized ziplock bags for students to fill. Collect Legos or Duplos in a drop-off basket before Christmas or another designated time to be distributed to International Children’s Care Children’s Villages. More about Lucas: Lucas Nelson is 13 years old. His father is Loren, the Youth Director for the Dakota Conference. Lucas’ mother is Sue, the Educational Superintendent for the Dakota Conference.
GROUP INSTRUCTIONS —
Decide on the best time for an annual “Lucas Legos for Kids” drive. Christmas-time is one good option. Work with colleagues to organize and promote the drive’s announcements, start and stop times, and possible fun incentives.
Decide on a financial goal to help pay for the shipment of the Legos to orphanages around the world, and to support the daily needs of ICC’s orphans, such as; food, education, health and living expenses.
Distribute gallon-sized ziplock bags for students to fill, or use other means to collect the Legos or Duplos. When the drive is over, weigh the donations and celebrate how much has been collected.
Include a report with your shipment or email your report to William Hurtado at ICC. Your report needs to include the following:
• Your group/school/church name and address
• Your group organizer name, phone and email.
• The weight (in pounds) of the collected legos.
• As many photos and stories as you can share for public use!
Download and print the pre-made mailing address label and send the legos to International Children’s Care. ICC will forward them to one of their children’s centers or children’s villages around the world. Remember, no donations are going to Lucas’ family; all donations benefit the children of International Children’s Care.
Thank you for supporting Lucas and International Children’s Care in making this world a better, smarter, happier place!
