Even in the midst of tragedy, determined folks can come together and support those who need it most. LEGOLAND Florida Resort announced that they collected over $125,000 for the American Red Cross from their weekend ticket offer. 

What’s happening:

  • Just last week, LEGOLAND Florida announced that for two days they would offer guests single day admission for just $25.
  • $10 from every admission sold on September 7 and 8 would go to the American Red Cross to support those impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
  • Today the resort announced that guests coming together for a good cause resulted in the collection of $126,760 that will go directly to American Red Cross’ relief efforts.
  • In addition, LEGOLAND Florida Resort served as a collection point for guests bringing in a total of 4,500 pounds of items including:
    • Nonperishable goods
    • Water
    • Toiletries
    • Baby products
    • Radios
    • Batteries
    • Candles
    • Bedding
  • LEGOLAND says everything donated will go directly to those in The Bahamas who were impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
  • Those interested in supporting hurricane victims can visit the American Red Cross’ website to donate and learn about other ways they can help.

Other helping hands:

  • This past week, a six-year-old boy received a surprise trip from Disney after spending his vacation savings on Hurricane evacuees. Jermaine Bell used money he’d been saving for a Disney vacation to buy food and water for South Carolina residents who’d been displaced because of the storm.
