Many of you know Jess Wilson, a frequent commenter on my blog and all around UNBELIEVABLY good and giving person. She's done it again. She's started a program whereby you can donate old iPods to be given to children with autism, that are unable to afford them on their own. For many kids on the spectrum, their sensory systems are easily overwhelmed and the use of iPods can greatly increase their coping and decrease their stress - think: shutting your ears.

If you have an old iPod, or know someone that does, would you please consider sending them, as well as over-the-ear headphones and associated chargers, to:

Autism Alliance of MetroWest

Freedom Project

14 East Central Street

Natick, MA 0176

Great idea! I don't have any old ipods yet. Mine is still very new. But I will let others know.

On it! I'm passing this on and assuming that MP3 players work just as well (from a Microsoft part-of-the-world, ya know...)
