We are very excited to participate in a big app party taking place this weekend. The website Apps for Children With Special Needs, is hosting the party, which will take place on its Facebook page. The site will be giving away over 2,500 apps and 10 iPads to families of children with special needs. Nosy Crow has donated iPad and iPhone promo codes for our Three Little Pigs app. Gary James, the founder of a4cwsn.com, had this to say in the app party press release:
“This is part of our iPads4U campaign to help those who would otherwise find this technology unaffordable. There can be no doubt at all that touch tablet technology is opening up a new world of interactive communication for children with special needs, and we can’t wait to spread the word, but our campaign relies entirely on generous donations from sponsors and philanthropists and we have a long waiting list so any additional support we get would be great.”
The app party will also give away other prizes, including iPad covers, app bundles, gift cards, and a range of accessories donated by sponsors.
Parents of children with special needs who would like to participate in the App Party should go here for joining and participation instructions. Sponsors wishing to donate to the iPads4U campaign should contact Gary James at (Gary(at)a4cwsn(dot)com).
As a supporter of the event, we have heard from many parents of children with special needs who have left messages on the Nosy Crow Facebook page, and we are delighted to be participating in such a wonderful project.
The app party is taking place from 6-9pm tonight (Friday, June 10th), 9am – 12pm and 5pm to 8pm tomorrow (Saturday, June 11th), and from 9am on Sunday, June 12th.
