Today’s Solutions: August 19, 2022

Following in the steps of other major manufacturers from different industries, toymaker Lego, famous for its multi-colored plastic building bricks, is using its resources to build protective gear for healthcare workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Denmark-based toy company has recently announced on social media that it had begun producing protective visors for front-line healthcare workers in its home country.

By tweaking its molding machines, the company managed to direct their operations towards producing personal protective equipment. The visors have a simple design, which was drafted by Lego employees with the help of representatives from Denmark’s healthcare sector. Currently, Lego is producing more than 13,000 of the face visors every day.

And this is not Lego’s only act of kindness. The company has recently announced that it will contribute $50 million to support children and families impacted by the COVID-19 and is also planning to donate 500,000 Lego sets to children in need.
