The focus of Little Bear Gives will be to provide CVI iPad packages to families in need who have children with CVI. A family at any income level may be considered for this project. The term “family in need” applies to any family who may not be able to afford an iPad for a variety of reasons. We know that many children with CVI have complex medical or other needs that can be very expensive, making it difficult to find the money to invest in an iPad. We believe the iPad can be an amazingly powerful tool in the life of a child with CVI. iPads are uniquely suited to the needs of those with CVI because they are backlit, easy to interact with, and there is a huge variety of apps available to suit the particular needs and preferences of each child.
For these reasons, we are excited to announce that we are giving away our first iPad through our Little Bear Gives project! Our iPad package will include:
- An iPad (first generation) with a link to our website: www.littlebearsees.org
- A copy of our CVI-specific app: Tap-n-See Zoo*!
- A copy of our new book about CVI: Little Bear Sees: How Children with Cortical Visual Impairment Can Learn to See
All applications for this round must be submitted by 12/15/12 to be considered. The first recipient will be chosen by 12/30/12. This is our second iPad package giveaway. Qualified applications that are not chosen will be kept on file and considered for future giveaways.
* You must have an iTunes account in order to receive the app.
