I'm in touch with the *Smith* family who lost everything when their house burned last week. She mentioned that she needed a thermometer for sick child last night and did not have one; also mentioned pots, mixer, chopper, sugar/flour containers, rugs, art, lamps. She has two tall slim kids, age 10.5 girl and 5.5 boy.
*Mrs. Smith* also mentioned that her 5 year old son misses his Legos...

So I thought it would be really cool if somehow we could get several members of this community to send the poor little guy some Legos. I know I would have been devastated if I were in his shoes, and even a polybag or collectible minifig would probably a very welcome sight for him right now.
My friend is going to find their address for me and she's trying to find out what his preferred theme is, though I'm sure anything would put a smile on his face.
If you're interested in helping out, please PM me and I'll provide you with their address once I have it. I thought it would be cool if everything arrived within a few days of each other, so maybe we can all agree to mail stuff this weekend?
Maybe we could all put a note in the packages that say something like, "From your friend (insert username) of the classic-castle.com online Lego community", or something like that
