We put up the Fundme page LATE Friday night after D and I had gone on a date and we thought we would just “try” it out as we waited for other avenues to pan out. We sent it out on Facebook and in a email to our family and friends. We were OVERWHELMED by the amount of people who responded.
There was so many people we had never met before who donated their hard earned money to a little boy. Some were family and most were not! What surprised me the most was the graciousness of those that did AND the graciousness of those who sent us messages about how much they love him and are keeping them in his prayers.
In a matter of 2 days we met and exceeded our goals.
There are no words to describe how thankful I am. It is with humble heart that we thank you.
Dallas always says it better. Here is what he says:
I am INCREDIBLY thankful and humbled by the support and contributions to help sweet Tyler in replacing his broken iPad. It will be a life-saver for Tyler when we have to go in to the hospital in a couple weeks to have a 24-48 hour EEG observation, to try and figure out if his stuttering are the result of mini seizures.
The iPad has been more *magical* then Apple originally knew it would be. It has given Tyler, and so many other "similar" children the independence and ability to have more control over the world around them. Before Tyler was able to talk he would use the iPad to help convey what he wanted to say but was unable to.
Once again thank you all for your love and support!
