After 7-year-old Thomas Jackson recreated the 947 studio and the #FreshOn947 team using his LEGO set he sent it to the team.
With the permission of his parents, the team were able to post the images on social media and it captured the hearts of people all over the country when we posted the images online.
The moment was so beautiful that the team decided that they wanted to show Thomas some love, so they called our good friends over at LEGO South Africa and had a surprise fo their own for Thomas.
I'm listening to you right now. I've been _LEGO-ing _since I was 4. I pretty much changed your studio into a big one.Thomas Jackson, Fresh Deeds nominee
