"On February 24th, like millions of other Ukrainians, I with my family left our beloved Kyiv to seek shelter from the war. But after living as refugees for two months, we realized that our life & our future will always be in Ukraine. Now I am back home and am proud to launch this project to give hope to our children that we can build a better future together!
I encourage you to support our project and would love to hear from you!"
"I lived in Ukraine from 2019 until February 2022, at which time I was compelled to leave the country like many other expats. During my time there I came to know this amazing country and its people quite closely.
LEGO connects us emotionally to our childhood, so it's the ideal creative medium to express support for Ukraine's children and the aspiration to build a better future together.
I hope you'll display these models as a tangible symbol of your support."
"LEGO connects us back to the sense of wonder we had as children, and in doing so unites people of all ages in a common journey of creativity and exploration.
Being a part of this project allows me to use this powerful force behind LEGO’s appeal to support children, who inspire us all to wonder and imagine."
"I think LEGO models are a great way to engage with cultural heritage and raise awareness for its endangerment. Combining this with a charitable cause makes me proud to contribute to this project."
" As a mom of two little angels and a proud Ukrainian I am happy to be helpful for the children of my country during these hard times. I like to be a part of this project because it is all about kids: by returning childhood memories of your favorite LEGO toys you are helping the children of Ukraine."
"Today, during war, no person can or should be on the sidelines. Someone helps with money, someone with ideas... If my models find a response and give an opportunity to raise money for our common cause - I will be just happy."
"I decided to join this project to help raise funds and bring great LEGO MOCs to this charity so that those in Ukraine receive the aid they need and shed some light onto what a beautiful country Ukraine is and its culture."
"For me, being part of the Let's Build Ukraine team is to be able to do whatever I can to help my country.
By supporting this project, you support Ukrainian children affected by the war and the whole country in its most difficult period. Thanks!"
