member of the month:
February Member of the Month is Hayden from Madison! We met Hayden last year at the Rocky’s pizza night. Hayden is 9 years old and loves all things LEGO! Something cool about his family is that they travel yearly to Australia to visit Hayden’s grandparents. According to Hayden, if anyone travels down-under they should “see everything!”. Hayden uses a wheelchair, and if he met another boy that uses a wheelchair, he’d tell him “it’s okay to be different”. Thanks for sharing your wisdom, Hayden! #WISBimpact
