My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative, Burton, MI, USA
My mother died from Alzheimer's Disease and my father from Vascular/Alzheimer's Disease. It was a long, sad, emotionally draining journey for all of us. We did everything we could to make them comfortable and happy in their last years. Unfortunately, at that time, there wasn't a lot of help (financially, emotionally, or hands-on) that was truly dementia-specific. The AAQI is a fantastic, fun way to raise funds to be used for research for the cause and cure for this horrible disease. How many other charities can boast that 100% of funding goes to research? The volunteers that run this charity are to be commended and that includes the quilters, buyers, promoters, and "worker-bees". It has been my pleasure to donate a quilt for sale, purchase quilts and collect enough names to make more than one full purple-patch background quilt for the new exhibit. I wish Ami Simms and her crew the best of luck.
