11 year-old raises money selling lollipops to donate iPads to autistic children

October 29, 2012

11 year-old Nova Shek sold enough lollipops to purchase 2 brand new iPads and donate them to Building Blocks Developmental Preschool in Commack, New York.

After learning her brother was diagnosed with Autism, she wanted to do everything she could to support him.

Nova noticed that the iPad was a phenomenal learning tool for her younger brother and wanted to give other autistic children a chance to have the same learning device. Nova's mother, Tina, explained to her that iPads are an expensive product and most schools can not afford to supply every child with one in the classroom.

That was not a good enough excuse for Nova. She decided to take matters into her own hands.

Using her own birthday money to buy the ingredients for chocolate puzzle piece lollipops, she started selling them for $1 each.

"I thought people like chocolate and the puzzle piece represents autism and is on most of the signs and posters so when I saw it at the store, I thought maybe I could make it," Nova explained. "That's how I came up with the idea."

Nova raised enough to purchase 2 new iPads for Building Blocks Developmental Preschool. This is a young girl with a very, very bright future.
