Donate to bring "opportunity through technology" to Triston, an amazing little boy with special needs. Help fund an iPad for communication!

Technology has dramatically changed the way we live, work, play, and learn. It has also provided unparalleled opportunities for children with special needs to access the world around them. With this opportunity, what was once impossible becomes possible.
Please help an amazing working, single mom (Desiree) bring this "opportunity through technology" to her child with special needs. Triston is a loving, adorable, and bright 6 year old boy with many challenges. He has significant vision loss, hearing loss, and physical limitations. He also has limited speech and is more often than not unable to communicate effectively with his family. Triston's mom works incredibly hard to provide for him and his younger sister, Jocelyn, while still finding time to do for others. Many of us have seen first-hand what the right technology, when put in the right hands, and paired with guidance and a plan for success, can do to help kids with special needs reach their full potential. I am raising funds on behalf of this amazing family to purchase a fully accessible iPad communication system for Triston, including the necessary accessories to ensure that Triston can use this technology to its fullest at home, at school, and in therapy.
