6/9/14 Willoughby Rotary Lunch - Autism iPad Giveaway

The big day arrived on Monday June 9th, 2014—our Willoughby Rotary held its second annual iPad giveaway to organizations who work with children and adults with autism who otherwise could not afford to purchase these wonderful devices. The grand total given out was 55 units (breakdown of recipients below).

The video above shows how their iPad will be used to improve the lives of both parents and children dealing with autism.

Thank you to each and every one of you who came to my talks and purchased my book and DVD. This process helped in raising the funds needed to accomplish our goal. With your help we are making a difference. Every dollar raised went to the bottom line. This is Rotary.

We will continue our efforts—our goal is to award 56 iPads next year.
