FOX’s LEGO Masters hosted by Will Arnett, recently announced its partnership with the organization, Merging Vets and Players to bring LEGO building sets to veterans suffering with PTSD.
Merging Vets and Players or MVP is a non-profit founded in 2015 by FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer, and former Green Beret and Seattle Seahawk Nate Boyer aimed to unite veterans with a supportive community of professional athletes. Having to halt all in-person operations during the pandemic, MVP found another way to help veterans from home.
While veterans have been turning to LEGOs as a coping mechanism for PTSD, MVP has teamed up with LEGO Masters to provide LEGO sets to veterans all over the country.
Glazer and Arnett discuss the importance of supporting veterans during these difficult times in different ways, such as providing a calming coping mechanism such as building LEGO sets for veterans dealing with anxiety or PTSD following their service. The video also features some of the amazing veterans who benefitted from this program.
Families can celebrate Veteran’s Day this year by supporting MVP or tuning into LEGO Masters on FOX, ahead of its second season.
