CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Merlin’s Magic Wand
LEGOLAND® California Resort’s primary concern is for children. We are delighted to support Merlin Entertainments’ special children’s charity – Merlin’s Magic Wand – who put the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children across the world. By providing tickets and financial support in the form of travel grants, they help thousands of children and their families to have magical days out every year. For children who are too unwell for a day out, they deliver the magic to the children with projects ranging from sensory rooms to specially adapted playgrounds.
To find out more about Merlin’s Magic Wand, the eligibility criteria and how you can apply for tickets to LEGOLAND California, please visit www.merlinsmagicwand.org Please note that Merlin’s Magic Wand works directly with children, families and organizations that will benefit from a day out and is unable to provide tickets to assist with fundraising through raffles and auctions.
LEGOLAND® California Resort has made multiple upgrades to become an eco-friendly business and continues to be committed to providing the best family theme park in the United States while optimizing recycling, water conservation, and other earth-conscious management techniques.
In 2007, we launched the innovative “Green Wave Committee,” which is an oversight group of Model Citizens (employees) from all departments in the Park, including landscaping, marketing, operations, and events. These Green Wave Committee members provide ideas, direction, and promotion in the continuing efforts to create a clean, eco-friendly environment for kids, families, and Model Citizens to enjoy.
