Another awesome giveaway!

We are so happy to announce another spectacular giveaway! So many families have joined together on so many campaigns that they believe in. The Get every SMA KID an IPAD campaign just keeps rolling! Our dear friends Sandy, Matt, Emily, Cashel and Allie are on a mission! The Gardner/Barber family chipped in last time to help raise enough money for our last Ipad giveaway……..and they didn’t stop there. Sandy recently used her Birthday wish on Facebook to raise enough money for another IPAD. Pretty awesome huh………..well……The Gardner/Barber family didn’t stop there either! This weekend in the blazing heat of Nevada they hosted a garage sale. It was 102 degrees outside but that was not going to stop them from hosting their event. It was an amazing day for SMA and when the money was finally counted they had raised enough money for yep……you guessed it another IPAD! The Gardner/Barber family have 2 type 1 children in Cashel and Alli and they know first hand just how much an IPAD changes the life of an SMA child. This family already has an IPAD of their own and have gone above and beyond for other families. The Sophia’s Cure Foundation is extremely thankful for the efforts of this amazing family.

So here it is! We are giving away another 2 SMA IPADS. They are the newest IPADS on the market and are 32 GB.

How to enter:

  • The child must have Spinal Muscular Atrophy and currently must not have an IPAD in the home.
  • You must comment on this blog on the Sophia’s Cure Foundation Website.
  • In your comment please mention your SMA Kids name and age
  • Entries will be accepted until Friday July 29th at 8pm eastern time
  • Winners will be drawn Saturday July 30th

Good Luck everyone we cannot wait to see who the winners are!
