This is what Toni Harwood did once her campaign was finished:
"The iPad arrived while he was at school, so I took it up with me at the end of the day," she says. "The children were all in the hall practising for the end of year play. But the teachers made time at the end to ask Ethan about his challenge, talk about it in front of the whole school, and then surprise him with the iPad.
"Brought a tear to this proud Mum's eye. Thank you all for making this possible. Now to learn about Minecraft!!"
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.
