Rebuilding Nepal with LEGO – Postponed

(This event is currently postponed until a new location and date is determined)

On April 25th, 2015 and May 12th, 2015, devastating earthquakes hit Nepal, killing more than 9,000 people and injuring more than 23,000. Hundreds of thousands were made homeless, with entire villages flattened.  In Solukhumbu, Nepal, 80% of schools, homes, and clinics were destroyed.

We at Play-Well TEKnologies, came up with a crazy idea.  We can help rebuild Nepal with LEGO.  Crazy, huh?  Here’s how.

We’d like to build replica Nepalese peace pagodas, homes, and schools out of LEGO. Each child may build structures to add to the collective “city.”   Children can learn more about what happened in Nepal and know that they’re contributing to the betterment of kids in need, because all proceeds of the event will go to rebuilding schools damaged by the earthquakes.

Nepal Pagodas

Also, we will be attempting to set a world record for the most LEGO Nepal Pagodas ever built.

Once, we determine a new location and a date, we will announce it.

If you’d like to partner on this event, please contact Jeff Harry at jeff@play-well.org.
