iPads for kids in hospital
TELSTRA not only provides phone calls and redundancies, but has also given $10,000 to the Northern Rivers Community Cancer Foundation.
The money will be used to suply iPads to children in Lismore Base Hospital who are undergoing treatment.
The iPads will not be part of the treatmnent of course but will help keep the kids connected to their families and to Facebook.
Telstra general manager for the North Coast, Sue Passmore, said the Telstra Foundation had received many applications from non-profit organisations around Australia eager for a part of the $1 million the foundation has to give away.
"More than 1200 organisations applied for a $10,000 grant which was well above expectations," she said. "...the 100 successful recipients are delivering programs which focus on education, cyber safety, Indigenous development through technology, or connecting community members with a disability.
