Bricks Busting Boredom Celebrates Five-Year ‘Brick-A-Versary’

Sarah, Jonathan and Daniel Clein donate 25 new Lego sets to the Kids Cancer Foundation in August.

Wellington-based nonprofit Bricks Busting Boredom is celebrating its five-year “brick-a-versary,” but instead of throwing Lego parties in children’s hospitals, BBB is asking for the community’s help.

Started in 2015, Bricks Busting Boredom has collected and donated more than 3,000 pounds of used Lego bricks and 1,000 boxes of new Lego bricks to children’s hospitals, emergency shelters, foster homes and homeless shelters.

Due to COVID-19, the nonprofit cannot collect and donate used Lego bricks.

“There are children in hospitals right now who cannot leave their rooms, and most of the special activities meant to keep them distracted are canceled,” BBB co-founder and Wellington High School senior Sarah Clein said. “We cannot go into hospitals and throw Lego parties, but we still want to help.”

Since the start of the pandemic, BBB has shipped Lego sets directly to children in hospitals, held a nationwide “Isolation Creations” contest, and donated Legos to the Kids Cancer Foundation and the Pediatric Oncology Support Team.

“We would love to ship Lego sets to all of the children’s hospitals in South Florida,” Clein said. “Please consider donating money or new Lego sets.”
