A few weeks ago, LEGO brought joy to the life of a ten-year-old boy. Today, it reminds us that large companies can do good things too, despite the onslaught of news to the contrary.
The story is heartwarming: Groccia, a 10-year-old boy in Massachussets, had been saving up for a few years to buy a LEGO Emerald Night Train set. Groccia, who lives with Asperger’s Syndrome, uses LEGO as part of his playgroup that helps with his social skills. Just as he had saved enough money to buy the set, it was discontinued and prices on online auction sites skyrocketed. Groccia wrote a letter to LEGO to let them know of his plight.
