Lego Group best known for the manufacturing of Lego-brand toys consisting mostly of interlocking plastic bricks, have pledged to donate $4 Million to organizations dedicated to supporting black children and educating all children about racial equality.
This comes after wide protests in the United States and across the World after George Floyd was killed by Police.
Yesterday Lego group requested the removal of product listings and features for more than 30 LEGO building sets, Mini-figures, and accessories that include representation of police officers, firefighters, criminals, emergency vehicles, and buildings due to the murder of George Floyd as a form of solidarity to the Blacks Lives Matter Movement. Other pulled back toys include the LEGO City Police Station, Fire Station, Police Dog Unit, Patrol Car, Fire Plane, Mobile Command Center, Police Highway Arrest, and many more.
In a tweet by the Lego Group’s official page below they wrote, “We stand with the black community against racism and inequality. There is much to do. We will donate $4 Million to organizations dedicated to supporting black children and educating all children about racial equality.“
