For every flower “planted,” the LEGO Children’s Fund donated $1 (up to $10,000) to the North Carolina Children’s Hospital’s "Children’s Promise." North Carolina Children’s Hospital protects the health of North Carolina’s 2.1 million children by aligning premier health care practitioners, world-class medical education, and innovative research to provide the highest-quality care, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

The LEGO Group is committed to helping children develop their creativity and learning skills through constructive play. The LEGO Children’s Fund extends this commitment to local and national organizations that support innovative projects and programming to cultivate and celebrate a child’s exploration of personal creativity and creative problem-solving in all forms. Our goal is to prepare the next generation — the builders of tomorrow — for a lifetime of creative learning and innovative thinking.
