You guys...I am HUGGING you through the computer screen! 
I LOVE you all for supporting us throughout this year.


Joe and I have been able to give away 23 iPads to kiddos here locally in Reno...and places all across the US.

If you are my friend on Facebook, then you know that I recently wrote about my encounter with a dad at the grocery store. (I just wanted to find out if his daughter needed an iPad--that's my job).

Well...that AMAZING story got picked up by The Mighty and a mom blog called Scary Mommy.

I was SO excited to be able to share our story about Isaac with the WORLD this weekend. It was such a hit online, that I now have 83 kids on my waiting list for iPads!

So...if you know anyone that might like our little project, please do share our story.

(and...if you're not my friend on Facebook and haven't read my story yet....you should read the story--and look me up. We should totally be friends...Kathy Pate Roller)

Pictures coming this weekend...I promise!

We've got iPads everywhere....just trying to get them engraved and boxed pretty for delivery.

We can't thank you guys enough for helping US help kiddos like Isaac. This helps heal my heart and makes me smile every time I get an email or package one up.

Isaac Roller was born on March 28, 2007.

He was born with a complex heart defect and DiGeorge Syndrome (which means he also had low muscle tone, a weak immune system, and would be developmentally delayed).

Isaac was the most happy little guy I've ever met.

He's medical procedures included:

  • Over 20 heart surgical procedures
  • cleft palate repair
  • G-tube placement
  • 2 sets of tubes in his ears.

And still...Isaac was the happiest little guy.

Isaac sat up unassisted for the first time when he was 2 years old.

Isaac crawled for the first time when he was 3 years old.

Isaac walked for the first time when he was 4 years old.

Isaac knew FOUR words "oh no" and "I know". and multiple variations of "No No No".

He loved two things...Yo Gabba Gabba and his Ipad.

Isaac couldn't run, skip, or hop.

Isaac couldn't talk or tell you how he was feeling.

Isaac couldn't feed himself meals, only snacks of cookies and chips.

Isaac wasn't toilet trained.

Isaac couldn't do sign language...

BUT...he could tell us which snack he preferred and which youtube videos he wanted to watch. AND this was possible because of his iPad.

Isaac passed away on January 26, 2015...just a few months shy of his 8th birthday.

To honor the love and joy that Isaac brought to our lives every single day, our family has started iPads from Isaac. Where we will donate iPads to those non-verbal children that need a voice. Families who might not be able to afford one or families that just don't understand the amazing things that iPads can do for our children that don't have a voice.

All donations go DIRECTLY to the funding of new iPads. We will update with each iPad we give away. To celebrate Isaac's birthday this weekend, we are giving away THREE iPads. ***

Our goal is to buy 100 iPad Airs at a cost of $400 each.

Please share our campaign with friends and family and those that know stores like (Walmart, Best Buy, and Staples that might match donations).

We have been flooded with love from everyone since Isaac's passing here in Reno...and we only want to continue the joy he brought us by helping other kiddos like him.

Thank you so very much.
