Your chance to win an iPad and beneift autism research
Posted Apr 27 2011 3:34pm
The iPad and autism: it’s a story that has picked up a lot of momentum in the media. One person who has told the story, and told it very well, is Shannon Rosa (of Squidalicious and The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism ). Her family won an iPad in a raffle and it has been “a force for good” for her son Leo ever since. Well, Leo has an iPad 2 (which I’m sure he shares with his sisters) and Shannon is passing on the “force for good” through a raffle of her own . She goes into details on her blog in a piece: Leo’s iPad Raffle .
Here are the basic details: $10 per ticket, purchased online for a chance to win a used iPad. This is the iPad used by the Leo in the video Apple produced to commemorate year one of the iPad:
Proceeds to benefit the Autism Science Foundation as a thank you for supporting Shannon’s travel expenses to attend IMFAR this year.
Raffle ends at noon PST on Friday, April 29th, the winner will be announced at 1 PM PST, and will be selected using Random.org.
Stuart Duncan: I have been wanting to get in on that because I'd love an iPad for my son, but they don't accept paypal and I don't have a credit card.Oh well, it's still pretty awesome and I hope it goes very well.
Sullivan: Stuart Duncan,no credit card? That's almost "off the grid" in this day and age.
sharon: @Stuart, that's precisely why I have a debit card, not credit. It allows you to make online purchases.
Stuart Duncan: I know, I'm old school... not the cool type of old school either.
But I figure not having a credit card keeps me out of trouble. Or I should say, more trouble.
