You would think Apple would give you a break on the price for doing such a wonderful thing!March 19, 2011 at 4:46 pm #96986
Diana, I AGREE!!!! I contacted them at one point and the employee said that Apple doesn't change the price for ANYONE. In fact, if any of their retailers change the price or hold a sale, Apple will pull their product from the store and not let them sell it anymore! They are VERY strict on pricing… blehMarch 19, 2011 at 6:22 pm #96987
Krissy – what a wonderful idea. Ipads for Autism!!! I love it!
And Apple is VERY strict with pricing. However, with the release of the new iPad 2, the price on the first generation just dropped to 399. That might help a lil…March 19, 2011 at 8:26 pm #96988
it did???? NO WAY! I'll be going to Apple tomorrow and check it out!!
Thank you SO SO SO Much sweetie!March 19, 2011 at 8:45 pm #96989
We are positively thrilled to announce that:
iPad #1 is PURCHASED!!!!!!
Now, how do we decide who it goes to? So many are in need that we want to ensure that each iPad goes to a child who reeeeeally really needs it.
Do you all wish to nominate a child with Autism? Or would you rather that I choose the recipient? All recipients will be based on need.
Our special kiddo will be posted when he/she has been chosen and the iPad sent, so that you can SEE where your donations went, and who they are helping!
We would like to send a VERY special THANK YOU! To the ladies who helped us to purchase iPad #1
