My son is autistic. Christmas is coming up and I want to get him an iPad. That's what he really wants for Christmas. But I can't afford much of anything this year. Is there a community grant that could help me?

This is a tough one. You might contact the National Autism Association to find a local chapter in your area and see if they have any ideas or suggestions. Contact the Salvation Army in your area and see what they might offer .... but an iPad would be an exceptionally large gift to expect them to help you with. Contact a local Apple Store and tell them your story, see if they might offer you a discount or a special payment plan. Or perhaps better yet, see if there's some sort of helpline at your local newspaper and share your story, perhaps they'd write it up in a holiday related article and readers could donate. Lastly, use a "crowdfunding" website to see if you can tell your story and get donations. Definitely see the article Free Money  2015 to see a description of the top platforms online for people to share their situation and see if others will help out. Your situation could be perfect for that, espicially during the holidays.
