As we use Lego Robotics to build future engineers, we can use Lucas Legos for Kids to build future philanthropists. LUCAS NELSON is a 13-year-old Adventist student from North Dakota currently fighting for his life to beat leukemia. Due to his severe cancer, Lucas is unable to attend school, or participate in classroom technology initiatives.
But Lucas is bringing something even more wonderful to classrooms: His love for God, for Legos and for helping others. With help from a friend and International Children’s Care–an Adventist orphan care ministry–Lucas is sponsoring “Lucas Legos for Kids.” His goal is to put Legos in the hands of orphaned children so they can enjoy Legos, some for the very first time. Through International Children’s Care (ICC), Lucas and students in your classroom can collect Legos, then ship them to ICC. ICC will distribute them to orphaned and abandoned children around the world. ICC cares for around 500 orphaned and abandoned children in 13 countries. Since 1978, they have fed, clothed, educated, and discipled children by providing them with missionary parents, homes, and educational resources. Children, through the support of people like you, grow up to accomplish their dreams to become engineers, doctors, teachers, and more. As you introduce your students to robots, VR sets and more, you can also introduce them to ICC’s children. Here are the instructions.
