    Mike, he is ADORABLE! How cute!

    Anyway, folks, this is tax time, so let's all send Mike some of our refunds we're getting, or if you have a due bill, send some to Mike. Either way, a SMALL action on our parts will make a TREMENDOUS impact on this young mans life. I've seen the iPads used with kids and the effects are just unreal.

    So, let's all pony some up now and get this kid what he needs.

    Plus, he has an AWESOME Uncle!

    Up to about $336 right now. I have been looking at used iPads on eBay and Amazon and I am getting close to being able to afford a decent used model and I'm good with that.

    Anything you can donate would be a huge help guys. And I would of course be sure to post pics of him with his iPad for everyone to see!

    I wish I could donate more, but I'm in college without a job. I would highly recommend ordering off Amazon over eBay. I do a ton of business with them and they put customer satisfaction as number one. If the seller fails to deliver what was advertised, etc., Amazon will make it right.

    Thanks thephanatik! Any donation is much appreciated!

    Also thanks for the advice on where to order. I think that sounds like a good idea.

    Anyone else that want's to kick in, please do. I have extended the CHIPIN for Wyatt page. The fund raising will now continue until April 30th. Anything will help! $5, $10, $20 or more. Anything is greatly appreciated. He's a great little kid and anything that will help reach him and make it easier for him to interact with the world around him will be a blessing to him and his Mom. It's just yatt and his Mom Cynthia. Anything that will make it easier for them would be a blessing.

    Oh, and if you don't do PayPal and you'd still like to donate, you can PM me and I'll give you my mailing address if you'd just like to send a check for a few bucks.

    Thanks guys!

    Come on people we have helped out others with less of a reason. You mean to tell me that the 25 people can not throw $20.00 for a good cause? or 50 people for $10.00. Brown bag a days lunch for the $10.00 savings

    From one Tennessee boy to another, I just dropped $100 in the pot.

    Come on you monkeys, let's finish this for Mike. Don't buy a pizza this month, shoot 50 instead of 100 rounds, take your lunch instead of going out, give up Cokes for the month and drink water, buy McDonalds coffee instead of Starbucks (it's better anyway).

    THANK YOU babrock!!!!!!!! You guys ROCK!!

    We are up to $470 at the moment. That is 58% of the way to the goal. We are doing great! Wyatt's Mom is so overwhelmed with gratitude she was actually tearing up when I talked to her tonight. She sends her thanks a hundred fold!

    bigdog44, I was shooting for $800 to cover the cost of the iPad (used most likely) and a good case to protect it from damage and the cost of shipping and any incidentals that I might have to get to make it suitable for a 4, almost 5 year old autistic boy to use. If you'd like to kick in a few bucks that would be most appreciated!

    Alright Mike. Just kicked it up by another $100. I hope we have some folks on the forum that will help finish this up. I am amazed with so many people talking about having so many guns that cost $500-$1000++ that we can not chip in a little coin and get this done.

    Let's go guys and gals. Let's help a little boy!!
