A very special thank you to Rosalie Allison for her LEGO donation.  She drove to our home to gift us her unwanted LEGO a long time ago – October 31st, 2014!!  We somehow missed acknowledging her on our website!  We are so sorry! Rosalie, please know that your generosity helps so many kids affected by felony abuse and/or domestic violence.  Thank you again.

SAFE Center, Sacramento California

We received the following email from Irene Chu of SAFE Center in Sacramento in December.  Thank you, Ms. Chu, for your kind words – we are grateful to be able to partner with you to help kids in distress.

Dear Nina and Maya,

It was such a pleasure meeting with both of you yesterday and getting to know how the BrickDreams initiated by its founder, Bailey, and how this project takes off.  It is even more encouraging to see that more and more children and families are benefiting from such a good deed.  Although the economy appears to be recovering, our County resources are still quite limited, and in addition to the restrictions of our grant fund, our Center has not been able to replace a lot of the old and worn out toys, and needless to say, we surely do not have any extra money for high quality and educational toys such as lego blocks.

Your project is definitely a blessing for our Center, as well as the children and families whom we serve on a daily basis.  On behalf of Sacramento County Child Protective Services and the SAFE Center, I would like to express our heart-felt thank you and appreciation for your generous donations of the lego blocks, and I would also like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
