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

Rating: 5 stars  

With so many worthy charities, it's difficult to decide which to support. Alzheimers is such a miserable disease. It takes away our "humanness". It places an incredible burden on the family, the health care system and the nation. And the numbers are rising fast.
Ami Simms with her Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative has brought awareness and raised research funds not by just asking for money, but by using an art form that we love to share.
I don't work in a research lab, or medical field to help find the cure, but I can add my stitches to an image I create to raise money for such a worthy effort. Thanks Ami, and thanks to all the contributors of the AAQI!

Role:  Volunteer & I made a quilt, Fading Memories, for the Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece exhibit.
