Hi, I haven't read all the responses, so this may have been suggested. Have you thought of writing to your local rotary or lions club to ask for one to be donated?I teach at a school were many children have special needs and a few of my parents have done this and had a whole range of electronic equipment donated. There are many generous people out there. If you can justify how your child would benefit from one, in a letter, you might be lucky! It would be easy to justify because they are a brilliant tool for children on the spectrum and can replace other expensive communication tools.

I know someone who has done fundraising to buy supplies for a special needs child, but they did it without a kit. The first lot they did was selling a postcard for $5 that the child had drawn (birthday, thanks and Christmas cards). They had one design for each occasion and had them printed from vistaprint. The second one they did was ask people to donate old clothes/home decore/toys and sold them on eBay.I like these ideas better that buying a pen or ribbing just because it feels less commercial and I know a percentage of my donation isn't going to a manufacturer.

I applaude you for trying to raise the money. My son was dxd at age 4 so recieved the funding and we purchased an iPad for him. Sometimes I think how great it would be if I could use more of his funding to buy an iPad for a child who doesn't qualify for funding
How about baking and selling to friends? A friend of mine does online auctions through Facebook to raise money for her son with CP...would that be something u could do?

If you buy the items people sell for fundraising... (pink ribbon pins etc)
Ah-hah.. Makes perfect sense. Good luck to you!
The reason I asked your location is a friend of mine founded Army of Autism Awareness Angels, they have Facebook. They are in Adelaide, and have secured a discount on an iPad through good guys (groups cross Adelaide only)..

I know my reply might be unpopular but...
If I knew you I'd give you $10 for a bear.
If I didn't know you, and asked what you were fundraising for, and you said an iPad for your child with autism, I would probably not.
It's not that I think it's unworthy cause... I suppose, I'd just think there would be worthier ones that I could give that $10 to instead?
It wouldn't be about the teddy either way. I hate teddies and would rather not have another one in our house... lol.

Hi. I agree with PP that a counsellor or similar at school maybe able to help. Do you have a local area coordinator? That may be a WA thing. If not try the autism association in your state.
Also, I would buy a bear or what ever for this cause, it is close to my heart though!
