This is a wonderful opportunity to win some great prizes...but I have found that the entry access is somewhat discriminatory. In order to create additional entries it is assumed that everyone is a member of Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. Personally, I choose not to be a part of social networking sites, and it bothers me that I cannot enter additional times.

Laura Wieczorek said...

an Ipad would be so cool to help me with my dyslexia program.
