Review for Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative, Burton, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I cannot praise Ami Simms and her Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative enough. Over 5 million people in the US alone have Alzheimer's Disease. That's a mind-boggling 1 in 8 people 65 years old and up. We're all touched by Alzheimer's Disease in some way. In my case, my family has a genetic glitch which makes it particularly close to me and absolutely terrifying! We *must* find a cure!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the quilting! The mini-quilts are 9x12", which allows me to experiment with different techniques.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I haven't met anyone here *face to face* because I don't live in the US. My *quilting mentor* here was lucky enough to take a class with Ami Simms in the US. I know I was very moved by her personal e-mail to me when I joined AAQI.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

find a cure or preventive!

Ways to make it better...

absolutely fantastic as it is!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

publicity, publicity and more publicity!

One thing I'd also say is that...

We *must* find a cure for this terrible disease!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Donor & I make mini-quilts for AAQI and also can't resist buying a few.
