Let’s face it, LEGO bricks are amazing … but they can multiply quickly. If you’ve found yourself with an overflow of LEGO bricks, or you’re are simply stepping on one too many a day (OUCH!), there’s a quick and easy way to donate your excess bricks.
LEGO Replay is a partnership between LEGO and Give Back Box to help ensure unused LEGO bricks make it into the hands of children who need them most. Plus, passing bricks on to the next set of builders is a great way to give back to the planet!
How does it work?
It’s easy. Simply grab any cardboard shipping box (including all of those Amazon boxes we know you have lying around), fill it with bricks and then click here to enter your email and zip code in order to print a free shipping label. You can then drop the box off at your local shipping office. The website will also provide you with a tax deduction receipt if you’d like.
What kind of LEGO bricks can be donated?
Any and all. Duplo, small bricks, big bricks. They don’t need to be full sets. Just gather up any bricks your children are no longer using and dump them in the box.
What happens to the bricks that are donated?
Give back box sorts and cleans the bricks to ensure they are only passing on high quality bricks. Then they will pack them up to be donated to organizations such as Teach for America or Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.
