    In an awesome act of social good, LEGO is giving away one toy to Toys-For-Tots this holiday season for every single Star Wars themed e-greeting sent.

    So far, Star Wars and LEGO fans have sent 318,774 e-greetings, which means that the same number of toys are being donated by the company. That’s super fun, and super giving.

    It’s not too late for you to send a Star Wars e-greeting to your friend and donate a toy, just go to LEGOSantaYoda.com and send a few. The toys go to charity, and your greetings will be well-received.

    If you’re in NYC, check out the huge LEGO Yoda display at the Whitebox Art Gallery which is on display until the 11th.
