Recycle old LEGO into a ‘Gift of Care’ for Jack & Jill
With the help of DPD Ireland, the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation are collecting loose LEGO bricks as a new way to fund extra nursing hours for sick children across Ireland.
Families, pre-schools, schools and businesses across the country can donate their unwanted LEGO to Jack & Jill. Every €16 raised through this LEGO drive will gift one hour of home nursing care. So dig out those LEGO bricks and help us to provide much needed nursing care for more families across Ireland.
Don’t worry if you don’t have complete sets or boxes. It’s loose LEGO we are
looking for. LEGO characters and Lego pieces, big and small!
It just has to be LEGO – no other brick will do.
So box or bag your LEGO and donate it via DPD Ireland’s 33 depots around the country.
Or you can bring your LEGO to one of our eight Jack & Jill Charity Boutiques in Arklow, Crookstown, Gorey, Naas, Newbridge, Portlaoise, Tullamore and Wicklow
Commenting on the LEGO drive, Carmel Doyle CEO Jack & Jill said:
“Let’s start a national search under beds for unwanted LEGO to fund extra Jack & Jill nursing hours for sick children. This gift of LEGO will translate into a gift of time for a local family – time to do the ‘normal’ things that others take for granted like sleeping, working, shopping or simply going for a walk. This campaign is really do-able because of our wonderful partnership with DPD Ireland who have 38 depots throughout Ireland. All people have to do is pack up the loose LEGO securely for transportation, address it to Jack & Jill LEGO Drive and drop it into your local DPD depot. .”
According to Maeve Dwyer, Head of Marketing DPD Ireland “We are delighted to have partnered with Jack & Jill. Anyone can donate their unwanted LEGO bricks to charity to fund home nursing care and respite for families all over the country. To have the opportunity to be aligned with such a wonderfully uplifting movement such as the LEGO initiative drives us to do better and to strive to help those whom we can.”
