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, my goal is to raise Autism Awareness and help other families.
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 first for the month of March and is for the recently 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 03/13/2013 – 03/22/2013. 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.
More children are being diagnosed at a younger age
Every individual with Autism is unique. I’d love to be able to share this with individual’s I work with as a demonstration model before they take the leap to purchase such an item.
If you’ve met one person with ASD, then you’ve met one person with ASD.
I have been in this field working with Adults with Autism for 20 years, I learn something new every day I work with my guys!
Autism has all different spectrums. e.g. aspberger’s.
I love that you’re doing this in an effort to raise autism awareness. As an educator, I’ve been passionate about advocating for my students with ASD. It wasn’t until the last month that I realized my son needs to be assessed – probably should have been ages ago. Between my son and my clients, I have to say that the big autism fact on my mind today are the importance of supporting and facilitating adequate sleep, and for balanced nutrition. So, so important in so many different ways.
Thanks so much for the contest.
No one is sure what causes autism. Through twin studies, scientists have determined that autism is a genetically based condition. For example, if one identical twin has autism then there is an 80-90% chance that the other twin will also be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. The chance that fraternal twins will both be affected by ASD if one twin is afflicted is approximately 3-10%.
1 in 88 children get diagnosed every year and 1 in 3 of those are boys.
Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism
I would love to win this for my son. He is Autistic and his 9th birthday is actually on the 17th. St Patty’s Day! This would be a wonderful gift for him 🙂
Hi, I have recently discovered your site. I have 3 sons with autism also. I also have 1 daughter who does not have autism.
