Russell (@LittleBricksCharityGuy) and Local Forth Worth Ambassadors are set to deliver over $5,000 worth of LEGO® Sets and products for the kids at Cook Children’s. The Founder of LittleBricks Charity has traveled all the way from Virginia to deliver these LEGO® Sets to the charity’s 32nd Children’s Hospital in the past 13 months.
“I land in Austin, TX, on Thursday, and the first thing I am doing is getting a Van to pack full of LEGO® Sets. By Friday night, the entire back of our van will be filled!” Said Russell, who has been documenting the fundraising journey on TikTok. Cassevah, who quit his job and cashed in his retirement to start LittleBricks Charity, uses his platform to advocate for these exceptional children and fundraise for LittleBricks Charity. “After breaking my second world record, I found my purpose in life. I traded in everything to help build BIG smiles on children that genuinely deserve to smile.”
“I am so excited to come to Cook Children’s finally.” Cassevah continues, “This will be our fourth delivery in TX, and Forth Worth is home to so many amazing LittleBricks Ambassadors. It is the efforts of amazing people in the local community like Richie and Savannah Petronis that make these smiles possible.” Russell is also pleased to have Holly Jones, a Registered Nurse at Cook Children’s and part of the LittleBricks Charity Family, join the delivery. “When we get to have amazing professionals from our LEGO® join in it makes everything so much more meaningful. Holly knows firsthand the effect these LEGO® Building Sets have on her patients.”
And what makes this delivery EXTRA Special is that LittleBricks Charity gets to host a Build Event with Cook Children’s Child Life Specialist Team. “We are so excited to build moments of joy with amazing kids. The staff at Cook Children’s have gone above and beyond to create a memorable event for the patients they care for. We are honored to get to be a part of that. After all, the real magic happens once the bricks are in the kid’s hands.”
Russell’s community on TikTok, which has grown to over 1.1 million followers, has already raised enough to buy $2,000 worth of LEGO® Sets that he will be bringing to Fort Worth. “I will be raising the remaining funds and telling everyone about how epic Cook Children’s is at the family friend BrickFest LIVE this weekend in Austin, TX.” Russell expects to raise at least another $3,000 and purchase more LEGO® Sets for the children in Fort Worth. “It is so spectacular when communities on social media come together with local communities. We have already received donations from all over the world to help “Build BIG Smiles” on these Epic Kids! Now it is time for Texas to show the world how epic This area truly is.”
Cassevah and the Child Life Specialists he works with say the donated LEGO® Sets are the most requested toy for hospitalized children. It gives them a mental escape from medical treatments, provides a sense of control, opens lines of communication, makes families smile, and so much more.
