Calling all LEGO fans (and geeks in general)! Wes Jenkins needs our help and if you don’t know who that is, you will in a second. But what if I told you he made a million geek’s lives better and I told you he needed help, wouldn’t that be enough to drive you over here to his GoFundme page and inspire you to help pay his medical bills and keep him from being evicted? Wouldn’t knowing someone out there who helped save and inspire our kind needed help now be enough to make you want to do something? I know geeks and I know them well (as I have been one my whole life) and I genuinely believe that IS enough. This man created Lego Island. Go help save his life and his house, seriously. For the few of you left who need incentive, read on.
For the uninitiated, Wes Jenkins created the video game Lego Island MANY years ago. Now this may mean little to you, but you NEED to realize, this was in a time when interest in Lego was waning. He instilled a vigor and humor that was much needed, and pretty much any awesome Lego video game you play today would not exist had this man not had the courage to make one first, and make it damn good before that bar had even been raised. Now, he and his wife and facing eviction because of mounting medical bills this man is facing.
I think you know what to do next. The right thing. Wes Jenkins, the geek community has your back!
