The Puzzling Piece iPad Challenge: Free iPads For Autistic Children

Melissa Winter, a mom and founder of The Puzzling Piece, recently e-mailed me and asked if I would spread the word about their new iPad Challenge.  I felt that it would benefit many of you, so I agreed – The Puzzling Piece is giving people the chance to win a free iPad for a child with autism – all they have to do is put a little work into it!

The Puzzling Piece started as a school fundraiser, when Melissa decided to make glass puzzle piece necklaces for her son Max’s special education school.  (He is six years old and has autism – Melissa also has a three year old son.)  They were a hit, and the mom loved making the jewelry pieces, so she turned a budding idea into a flourishing business.  The Puzzling Piece now sells glass necklaces, metal bracelets, and more online.  If you’d like to check out their products, jump on over to The Puzzling Piece.

The iPad Challenge was an idea that sprouted from Max’s experience with an iPad: Melissa claims that it opened doors for him that had never been opened before.  This is what we here at Autism Plugged In strive to do by giving you reviews of the best apps for these children on the spectrum, but we realize that many of our readers are not in the financial position to go out and buy an iPad.  The iPad challenge gives you the chance to get an iPad for free, but requires that you sell The Puzzling Piece merchandise.  If you can sell 60 products, which shouldn’t be too difficult if you ask around, you will be sent a BRAND NEW iPAD FOR YOUR CHILD WHO HAS AUTISM!  If you’re interested, jump on over to The Puzzling Piece’s iPad Challenge.

UPDATE:  Enter our contest today to win a beautiful Puzzling Piece Necklace!

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
