On May 20th, I got an email saying I’d won an iPad 2 – which usually sounds like it’s too good to be true. I realized it was legit prize from a Facebook contest I’d entered. The contest was held by a company based in Hawaii called A1000x – which was started by a 16 year old named Jack Usegi.
Part of the purpose of A1000x to encourage and support artists in his community, and they go one step further and even donate part of their profits to charity. It’s a worthy business model that I hope is also profitable for them. I just received the iPad and some a1000x swag last week and I love them all.
To protect my new iPad 2 – I got a cool Grifiti Dootle case (looks a little like a hardcover sketch book), which I found to be a lower priced alternative to the Dodocase. I’ll add pictures of the case soon. I’ll probably add my A1000x stickers and others that I like to it soon!
