HollyRod Gives Away iPads to Children with Autism
Hollyrod.org gave away 100 iPads to help children with Autism.
In 2010, HollyRod introduced the “Give the Gift of Voice” campaign to provide iPads to give a voice to those without. To date, HollyRod has given away more iPads for communication for Autism than any other organization. Over 100 individuals ranging in age from 3 to 32 across 27 states can now make their voice heard. It is our commitment to continue this program so that every individual with Autism has a voice.
