Sebastian’s Lego Club, an organization started by the most amazing boy we know, made a very large Lego donation to Children’s Hospital today…with the help of some friends.
Sebastian is a 9-year-old boy who is battling terminal cancer. When he was getting treatment in the hospital, his favorite thing to do was play with Legos. He thought other sick kids would enjoy this activity, too, so he started his very own club to help collect Legos to donate to Children’s Hospital.
Sebastian’s first Lego donation a few months ago was 300 and now his second donation today was made with a total of 600 Legos given to sick kids! Sebastian was getting some rest today, so he wasn’t able to make it, but his sister, Maiah, made sure she completed her brother’s mission for him. Sebastian’s best buddy, Patrick Kaleta, also came to help Maiah deliver the Legos.
“It’s so amazing to see the kids smile and it’s good to do good,” said Maiah. “It makes me feel better about the circumstances that we are in to understand how others feel and to try to help others in a way Seba felt better in. It was so great to see the parents faces, too. It makes them happy and maybe a little relieved that they have something to do with their kid other than just sitting there watching TV. It’s a good feeling. My heart does go out to all of them. It makes me sad that people are in this situation but also kind of powerful knowing that we aren’t alone.”
Legos were collected through fundraisers held by Greek to Me Restaurant, Recovery Management Solutions, Forest Elementary, East Aurora School District, and individual donations. For more information on Sebastian’s Lego Club or to make a donation, visit Sebastian’s Lego Club on Facebook.
