@Lost_and_Tired Android Tablet Giveaway

UPDATE: This Giveaway is officially open to Canadian residents, unless prohibited by law.. I’ll adjust the widget when I get home thus afternoon. I’m so happy to be able to extend this to all my friends to the north. 🙂

Before we get started, I want to explain why I’m doing these giveaways. These tablets are generously donated by Idolian. I’m free to give them away as I see fit. I’ve chosen the giveaway route because it seems to be the most fair. My goal is to not only provide this technology to those that need it, free of charge, but also raise Autism Awareness in the process. 

Anyone can enter (right now it’s Continental US and Canadian Residents (unless prohibited by law) ONLY because I have to pay for shipping out of pocket. At the moment I can’t afford to ship outside of the US and I’m sorry for that.) You don’t have to have Autism or be a special needs parent in order to win. 

Remember, part of my goal is to raise Autism Awareness and anyone can help with that.

We really owe Idolian a huge thank you because they are the only company that I know of that is willing to reach out and provide these devices to the community. 


@Lost_and_Tired Android Tablet Giveaway

Welcome to the latest and greatest giveaway from Lost and Tired. I’m honored to work with Idolian, in conjunction with millerrupp.com to make this giveaway possible. I haven’t met any other company that was willing to step up and help provide the autism community with this much needed technology. They deserve all the credit for this.

This particular giveaway is the second for the month of February and is for the 2013-02-21 11.21.48recently reviewed Idolian Mini Studio Dual Core, 8″ android tablet (See Mini Studio 8″ #Android Tablet Review). This android tablet is a direct competitor to the new iPad
Mini. The Mini Studio by Idolian, stacks up spec for spec (with the exception of the camera) with the more expensive iPad Mini.

It also has all the massive advantages that go along with the android OS as well, the biggest being customization and choice.

Now for the details of the giveaway.

First and foremost, the disclaimer:

Members of the Lost and Tired family are not eligible for this giveaway. This contest is for the continental US and Canadian Residents (unless prohibited by law) ONLY. Sorry, I can’t afford international shipping.

This giveaway is for one (1) Mini Studio 8″ android tablet by Idolian. This contest will run from 02/21/2013 – 03/01/2013. You can enter by using the form below. If for any reason you need to contact me, you can do so by clicking here.

Please note that that the winner will have 24 hours to respond to the notification email. After 24 hours I reserve the right to award the prize to the next on the list. Please check your email in the day following the end of this giveaway.

Children with autism actually absorb more from their environment than neurotypical people. They are NOT tuned out from their surroundings…the problem is that they actually take in too much and this can be overwhelming

Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autismcool.

Portability is a good thing.  🙂


I have cared for a few children on the autism spectrum, two of which were siblings with fragile x syndrome. Autism takes on so many different forms, but regardless of the “severity”, all those affected can lead meaningful lives full of love and fun!


Rockin’ giveaway! EVEN better that’s being used to raise awareness for Autism!


Want this so bad!


@SteveReddington thanks


@The_Decipher Good luck!


My laptop is now dead, a tablet is all I need now.


Oops – I forgot the fact. Autism isn’t really a simple, single diagnosis. People are not autistic, some people have autism.


Thanks for your efforts to raise awareness. I have the privilege of leading a Bible study for young people with cognitive “disabilities”. I hope they get as much out of it as I do!

People with autism can be just a little Autistic or a LOT Autistic.  Autism shows it’self in many, many ways.  I’ve known children who would not make eye contact, and I’ve known kids that will run up and hug you and will go home with a stranger.
Autism now affects 1 in 88 children, and boys are nearly 5x more likely than girls to hav eit.
Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average
Now, here’s the one that brought me to my knees: The National Institute of Health’s total budget is $30.86 billion (that’s alot of money for health!)
however…only $169 million goes directly to autism research. This represents 0.55% of total NIH funding.  That is sad, and MUST change.
Thanks Rob, for another great giveaway!


I am blessed to be able to provide Early Intervention services to children (birth to age 3) with autism and other special needs.  I am a community based rehabilitation specialist/infant toddler family specialist, and in this capacity I am able to work not only with the child but the family as well. I have found that the caregivers/family need just as much care and support/if not more than the children.


@BeverlyAppelMaurice thank you for saying that. 🙂


Autism Awareness is essential for many communities but I must speak of the community in which I am from which is that of the Hispanics. Many Hispanic families are receiving more often a diagnosis for a loved one that they have never heard of and remain rather confused and those children who are suffering from Autism are being left out of what life can offer to them. I am so grateful that being a Hispanic women I have the capabilities to comprehend more than many others can.


i want one plzz


Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases


Some of the most brilliant kids I have met are autistic


Would love to win this.


Autism changed the life of our family in that it made us more flexible and open to change, where we had been set in our ways. Becoming @NathansVoice was definitely a blessing for us!


I can’t tag you “Rob Gorski” in a post from Facebook because your not on my friends list 🙁


@AnnaDraperVermillion if you send me a request, I’d love to be your friend. Plus, I hadn’t thought about that. Maybe I should fix that to Friend me on Facebook. 🙂


@lostandtired  @AnnaDraperVermillion  there are 7 with the name Rob Gorski and none of them look like you! Post a link to your page?? 🙂


@AnnaDraperVermillion https://www.facebook.com/rob.gorski.1978


when children with autism grow up they are capable of  falling in love and even getting married 🙂


I love this…


What a great opportunity for a family to get a communication tool.

Sent you a reply but not sure you got it, I would be willing to pay for shipping if one of our Canadian families won it. I can deposit through your website and reimburse you for it. I am from States and have seen many giveaways where we could not try, so if we can be included great! Let me know. Thanks.


@Jennifer Lee Bowerman Sorry. I didn’t get it. I think I can get this working. I should know for sure around 3:30 pm. I think it’s doable and I’m getting excited. Any help would be appreciated. 🙂  Thank you again. Feel free to shoot me an email.

Jennifer Lee Bowerman

@lostandtired I do recommend when you send it you say that it is a gift for customs I think that would be best as it really is, but be sure to include insurance for it as well and I don’t mind paying that either if we can get it to work. keep me posted. And we may need to change your info at the top on rules that say Canada and US Residence only, should any Canadian parents try for it they may not if they see only in US. 🙂 thanks. J


@Jennifer Lee Bowerman I officially opened this up to my friends to the north. I needed to find out about customs and it shouldn’t be a problem because it isn’t merchandise and is a gift, as you pointed out. I’m really excited to be able to make this work. Thank you for you help. I have another one to giveaway after this as well. 🙂

Jennifer Lee Bowerman

@lostandtired  PS sending out my note on it now but there is a message in red above that says US only still. 🙂 Thanks,


@Jennifer Lee Bowerman good catch. All fixed.

Jennifer Lee Bowerman

@lostandtired Done just sent it. Thank you again, for sharing. I owe you one!


What a wonderful giveaway. Jacob could really use this for learning apps!

Jennifer Lee Bowerman

I really wish we could include the Canadians in giveaway…we  have 80,000+ families in Ontario only that have a child on the spectrum. Thank you again for all you do and share Rob. God Bless you and your family.


@Jennifer Lee Bowerman The problem is that from what I can see, shipping would be really expensive. I would love to include Canada. I’m looking into it now and seeing if I can get reasonable postage.


@lostandtired I can’t seem to post my comment above.


@Jennifer Lee Bowerman I’m gonna check with the USPS but I think I can get shipping to Ontario for like $16. That’s something I can pull off. I just need to check something before pulling the trigger and opening it up. I truly hope this will work.


This is so awesome of you 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
