Review for ALZHEIMERS ART QUILT INITIATIVE, Burton, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned of AAQI last year while searching the internet for information on Alzheimer's. I wanted to learn more about the disease that is stealing my uncle's memories. Alzquilts.org came up on the results page and grabbed my attention because as a quilter, I'm always willing to look at the eye candy! AAQI is so much more than just eye candy though. I have never met Ami - but feel like I'm sitting in her living room when I visit the web site. Open, honest, kind, funny and passionate about finding a cure. All that and more is obvious. "Show Me The Money" lets me see where the money has come from and where it's going. "$1000 Promise" allows me the chance to read the heartwarming stories from donors and volunteers who have made a commitment to raise at least $1000 through their donations of Priority Quilts. "Look At All The Quilts" might be my personal favorite and I get to look at all the quilts that folks have made and sent in to Ami for sale. I have one more Priority Quilt finished, and another 2 or 3 in my head. I'll send them along once those in my head have made it into fabric ;) and then I'll start the process all over again. This is a great charity and one you should consider becoming involved in. We need to find a cure for this disease!
