Forget hot coals, we challenge you to walk across a path of LEGO! Oh! We wouldn’t ask you to do this for no reason, keep reading and you’ll find out about the amazing cause this supports!


Here’s how it works: 
1) Take a gallon bag and fill it with Lego
2) Spread the Lego over a 10 foot length
3) Walk across barefoot and try not to cry
4) Post a video and this text to challenge your friends!

Why would someone do this? Here in the developed world, we have so much stuff. Some of it is awesome stuff, like Lego. But we have much of it that it’s often lying around our house.

You would think the pain and aggravation of stepping on a Lego would be a universal experience, but you’d be wrong. In places like rural Uganda, many kids have no toys or learning tools at all. They have never heard of or seen Lego.

The Brick Walk Challenge is raising awareness for Play Well Africa, a grassroots nonprofit that provides used Lego and other learning tools to underprivileged families and schools in Uganda, Kenya, and Botswana. If you are nominated for the challenge, you must either accept it, make a video, and copy this post, OR donate $25 or 1 pound of Lego to Play Well Africa.



We had so much fun making this video and we are going BIG with our challenge….


Feel free to click on their names and send them a tweet letting them know you want to see their #BrickWalkChallenge videos!

You can also purchase Lego Jewelry and ornaments from Play Well Jewelry or if you’d like to donate directly to Alicia or Anabelle you can do that too!

Girls in the Garage

Girls in the Garage is the BEST! I’ve been there so many times and it’s always so much fun! The first time I went I got to learn all about cars. I learned how to put a tire on a car, check the tire pressure, check the oil and lots more. They had music and we got to have a dance party too. They also have a wheel you can spin for prizes. Then, I got to go back and help teach people how to do things. I haven’t been back for a little bit because my sisters had soccer. I’m excited to go Wednesday and see everyone and Kevin (the owner) asked if I wanted to sell me Play Well Jewelry!



So, this Wednesday Girls in the Garage, Play Well Africa and Play Well Jewelry will be hosting a Lego Drive at Girls in the Garage! We’ll be collecting Legos, selling Lego Jewelry, there will be cars, a live band, food and drinks. Stop by for all the fun!
