A Florida theme park is lifting kids' spirits by giving out 20,000 free tickets to those impacted by Hurricane Irma throughout the state.
Legoland Florida Resort announced Thursday that it's donating 18,000 tickets to the UNICEF Kid Power Schools program and 2,000 tickets to Boys & Girls Clubs in Polk County.
As a resort built for kids, we felt compelled to do something special for Florida’s children after Hurricane Irma, which left so many households facing months of recovery,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of Legoland Florida.
“While we can’t turn the power back on for those families, we can put smiles on their faces.”
The donation is worth $1.8 million. It's been made in conjunction with Merlin’s Magic Wand – a global charity of Merlin Entertainments.
