Update on the iPad Challenge . . .

We have sold 3 pieces already!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!  I am really excited about this - Isaiah doesn't even know about it (I didn't want to tell him about the iPad until he actually earned it, he just thinks he's doing a fundraiser).  Just so you know, this is legitimate.

There is a very compassionate lady, here in FL, who has a son with Autism.  She started a jewelry (and other things) company to raise awareness and funds for people with Autism (funds go toward research, Surfers for Autism, and therapy).  If you want to know more about The Puzzling Piece and a bit of the owner's story, here is an article about her and the company:

I can hardly wait to see Isaiah's face when he receives this iPad - he will love it!  Please, share this with your friends and family - the more help we get, the more he will sell & earn toward his iPad.  He has to sell at least 60 pieces to get an iPad.  Each item on the iPad Challenge tab counts as 1 point toward an iPad - so, literally, he has to sell 60 items.  Anything over that goes toward an iTunes gift card for apps (so the more he sells, the better - there are great apps out there for people with ASD, some are free, some are cheap, but the really helpful ones are a bit pricey).

Here is an updated flyer for you:

So, please visit The Puzzling Piece at and order one of the above items.  Make sure you enter my name (Kelly Sandy - the account is under my name, since I am the adult) in the Challenger's Name box (below the item you selected).

Thank you, again, for your help!

Help Isaiah Earn an iPad!

That's right, earn. :0)   iPads have been wonderful for people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) - there are tons of apps to help individuals with Autism that are available on the Apple market (more than on the Android market).  Even Isaiah's online school offers apps for the iPad.  I have really wanted to get him one, but they are way out of my price range . . . now, there is a way that he can earn one (and continue to earn points toward an iTunes card to purchase apps). :0)

Here's how you can help . . .

Visit The Puzzling Piece and view the items under the "iPad Challenge Pieces" tab.

Once you select an item, look for the "Challengers Name" box and enter my name or Isaiah's name (if you need to know, just send me a message).  :0)

Place your order and that's it!

Every item you purchase helps Isaiah earn another point toward his iPad as well as further research and help families afford therapies for their loved ones with Autism.  We have to sell 60 items to earn an iPad, so, please feel free to share this with your family and friends (just make sure they know my name or Isaiah's name).  :0)

Thank you, in advance, for your help (and thank you to those who have already placed an order)!
