Mandi is a 9 year old Autistic girl that is non-verbal.We are trying to raise money to buy her an iPAD so she can learn to speak.Please help

Mandi is our 9 year old little girl. When she was a baby we noticed little things that were different about her. As she grew, we could tell something was wrong. We had her tested and she received the diagnosis of PDD NOS (Autism Spectum Disorder) This was a devastating time for us. How could our beautiful litte girl have Autism? We realized that Mandi deserved our help...and what we found is that this little Angel has ended up helping us instead of the other way around. She has taught us the true meaning of "unconditional love". No matter what happens in our lives, Mandi is always there with a hug and a smile to let us know; "It's gonna be OK." She truly is our family Angel.

Mandi is still unable to communicate using words. We were told that there are iPAD Apps that have been designed to help Autistic kids learn to speak. We have tried for the past year to find the money for an iPAD for Mandi. (This past summer we relocated to Alaska to find work. It's been a real struggle to meet our obligations.)

In comparison to some of the other fundraisers on this site, this pales to the hardships of cancer, accidents and disease, we realize that. But wouldn't you do everything possible to help your little girl learn to speak?
That's the reason we're only trying to raise $600.00. We just need a little help.
Won't you please help Mandi speak?
