Danish toymaker LEGO is donating $4 million USD to organizations dedicated to supporting Black children and educating children about racial equality.

LEGO’s statement reads, “We stand together with the Black community against racism and inequality. There is much to do.” The company has not yet disclosed which specific organisations will be the recipients of its donation. It joins companies and people all around the world in supporting #BlackLivesMatter, which has seen widespread protests instigated by the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police.
