READS AND DEEDS
Make a difference in the lives of these great warriors
Thank you so much for what you do for those battling cancer...." Alex's Dad
We've placed 138 tablets in the hands of these great warriors since March 2013. Throughout our website you see pictures of our recipients. They use these devices for education, to play games, watch videos, chat with friends, access email, access the web, etc. For many these devices provide balance between physical and emotional needs.
Destiny is a long term patient at Tewksbury State Hospital in Massachusetts. She has been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos.
Tyler is one of our Kindle Fire recipients. Tyler has been diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma. Tyler's goal is to help other kids he meets while at his clinic or hospital visits. Reads and Deeds thought this is a great idea and provided Tyler with little solar cars, sticker books and engraved pens to start Tyler with his project. What a great kid!
Our mission is to place tablets in the hands of cancer/physically challenged kids/adults, Veterans, Homeless and many other groups impacted by struggles. We find the tablets benefit the entire family. The tablet is the bridge between the struggle and the emotional well being.
Reads and Deeds is passionately advocating to improve the quality of life of our medically challenged kids, teens and adults who spend all or part of their time in hospitals or their home. We found a way.Tablets! Our goal is to place a Kindle or other tablet in as many homes as we can.

wow that is so awesome! I should let you know that you were absolutely write (if you where who I talked to in the very beginning asking about it all). It TRULY help her fine motor development. She never had to do ANY of that in PT. She knew how to do everything when it came to writing, drawing, using spoons, pencils, the works. I thought it was awesome either way but when something fun can make such a huge difference in development it is exciting. I guarantee that the cost of the kindle was no where near what it would have cost to have physical therapy to teach her and strengthen those skills. Not to mention it definitely increased bonding with all three of the kids, which is something you always want as a parent. I love the page, back you guys 100%, and have told everyone about you all. Thank you again, you have no idea how much of a difference you made with something I would never have been able to get them.
