What is scruff for schools?

Scruff for Schools is a program created by Five Nines that uses scruffy faces to donate technology to children with special needs.

Why scruff for schools?

James (a Five Nines co-founder) has a son, Kaden, who lives with cerebral palsy. Kaden greatly benefits from the use of an iPad; which showed the Five Nines Family the need for a program like this. By combining No-Shave November with donating technology to children with special needs, Scruff for Schools was born.

I was born with a very rare syndrome called Nager Syndrome. This has affected my hearing, language, speech, skeletal development and fine motor skills. I have had many surgeries to help me with these issues. I use my iPad to do my class work. I take notes, write stories, practice my spelling and use the internet for research. It has made my transition to middle school a lot easier. I also find time to play games on my iPad.
