Many thanks Sonya and Amy for passing on the word that Sparky is always
collecting LEGOS,
field set-up kits, NXT's and LEGO Mindstorm components to provide students
who otherwise wouldn't
have an opportunity to be on a team!  What started with a local project is
now impacting students in
Haiti, Ghana, Uganda, Niger and a Syrian refugee school.

If your team has old field set-up kits, LEGOs, LEGO Mindstorm components,
NXT bricks - we can
use them to inspire kids around the world!!  Send us an email if you have a
donation.

*HELP - SPECIAL IMMEDIATE NEED *
*We are getting ready to send FLL Kits to Haiti for the Trash Trek season.
   *
*We REALLY need NXT rechargeable batteries and the power cords.*
*We also need LEGO Mindstorm plastic bins and trays.*

MANY THANKS VA/DC for making such an impact around the world... one LEGO at
