PLUS an opportunity to help out "Bricks Busting Boredom" a charity Dan Clein of Wellington started when he was 18 years-old.  Nearly five years ago, Dan’s cousin was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer. For several months, he witnessed his young cousin go through painful cancer treatments, spending much of that time in hospital rooms. “We realized how little there is to do for children going through treatment. They can’t really be a kid or stimulate their creativity,” he said.

The experience prompted Dan to start up Bricks Busting Boredom, a nonprofit that collects new and used LEGO bricks to give to children in hospitals across South Florida. “When you watch a child step out of their hospital bed and see the LEGO sets, their eyes light up,” Dan said.
