Publicity pays for Peter and his iPad

Last month Traci Morrissey went public with an appeal to families in Liverpool to donate their old mobile phones so that she could obtain an iPad from Hearts and Minds for her son Peter. 

Today, 2 1/2 year old Peter shows just how happy he is with his new iPad:

Traci says: "Thank you so much to everyone who helped.  Peter is absolutely ecstatic about his new iPad!! He really loves it!  Peter is waiting on diagnosis of ASD, SPD, ADHD and speech and language delay, so the iPad has been a god send.  The Bay TV appeal and article in the Liverpool Echo really worked wonders, we're like local celebrities now!"

Hearts and Minds can help to arrange media coverage for any family that is collecting old phones, just contact for more details.

Could an iPad help your child too?

If you live in Britain, simply collect 165 old mobile phones and the Manchester-based charity Hearts and Minds will exchange them for a new iPad.
