Brick Link Sees Launch Of New Online Lego Store to Help Orphans Worldwide

BrickLink.com is now playing host to a new Lego marketplace, which dedicates all the profits from its sales to helping orphans worldwide, and has been launched just in time for Christmas.

This week marks the launch of Building Hope for Orphans, an on-line Lego market selling new and used Lego, based in Toronto, Canada. The business has a unique story, and has been set up through the kindness and dedication of children: Daniel Walessa, 10 years old, and his sister, Faith Walessa who is 7. Their remarkable desire in launching this store is to donate 100% of the profits earned directly to helping orphans through Compassion Canada and the Ellerslie Rescue Fund.

For the past year, Daniel and Faith have been collecting Lego through generous donations, garage sale finds, and from their own collection. They have worked tirelessly to sort, organize and upload over 30,000 pieces and sets to their website. Now children and parents can shop for Lego Christmas gifts through their online store knowing that all profits will go toward helping other children in need.

Daniel and Faith have created a comprehensive library of parts and sets, including bricks, minifigs, base plates, Lego Technic and more, to ensure there are pieces and sets to match every age and desire.

The founders of Building Hope For Orphans explained, "After learning that there are more than 140 million orphans around the world, we knew we had to do something to help. Now we'll be able to help orphans with everyday needs and even help orphans become adopted! God has given us so many blessings in life, and we want to use these to help others. It has been a lot of work getting ready to launch, but it is so worth it as now we can begin to help those who truly need it. People can help us by ordering some Lego at Building Hope For Orphans, by contacting us to donate new or used Lego, or simply by telling others about it!"
