DONATE LEGOS, SUPPORT AUTISM AWARENESS at LEARNINGRX

Local LearningRx brain training centers are looking for LEGO®s; lots of them for the Autism Society of Northern Virginia, where LEGO® building is a regular part of their community events. Northern Virginia LearningRx centers in Leesburg, Fairfax, Reston, and Vienna have a goal to collect 20,000 LEGO®s in total, and upon reaching that goal, center owners commit to trekking a 10-foot “LEGO® Walk of Fire” in bare feet. For more information, go to www.learningrx.com

ASNV provides LEGO®- based activities at various campaigns, but currently have to rent LEGO®s for these events. With enough LEGO®s, ASNV could have their own set of LEGO®s to be used for all of their outreach programs.
