When launching the iPad bursary program we knew there would be a lot of interest from low income families. What we were not expecting was the overwhelming response from the community- both in donations and referrals. In just under 14 days we have have had dozens of families referred to us by teachers, social workers and community agencies applying on the behalf of the families they work with. It is very touching to know that we have such amazing advocates right here in our community looking out for our city’s most vulnerable.
For some of Individuals an iPad will give them a voice for the first time. For others the iPad offers independence and the ability to obtain meaningful employment. Technology is breaking down barriers and income should not be the reason they are left behind.
You can help this holiday season by sharing our program with friends and family or by joining the generous Calgarian’s who have already made a donation.
