A simple thought turned into a non-profit that allows struggling children in Africa to have fun and forget their worries for a bit! Micah Slentz was only 6 years old when he came up with the idea for Play Well Africa, an organization that sends used Lego bricks to rural villages in Uganda for children to play with. While these Legos are hard to get rid of in America and can't be recycled, they are very hard to come by in Africa. Micah hopes others are inspired to help out and help educate kids who truly have nothing!
