Cortana Posted July 13, 2012 Share Posted July 13, 2012 I have debated doing a fundraiser to get our kids an iPad. We feel it would be the most beneficial for our older son with down syndrome, both academically and developmentally. All 3 of our kids have a disability and it would benefit them a lot to have one, but the expense is WAAAAY out of our reach. I've applied for a couple of grants but it's been a couple months and no word, frankly I don't see it happening. I thought about pursuing getting one through health insurance, but I think that's a dead end. Back to doing a fundraiser. I would do it, but I feel bad about it. It just seems wrong for some reason. I know I'm probably being rediculous about it, but I just feel it's not right to ask family, friends and strangers to help pay for something that isn't necessary, kwim? In the economic times we live it, is it right to ask people to give us several hundred dollars for an electronic device? I don't know. I just feel torn.
