ALZHEIMERS ART QUILT INITIATIVE
February 4, 2011
The things I love about AAQI are many. I love that all of the money they raise goes to research (not overhead). I love that they have so many opportunities for people to help in small ways -- even small ways add up if you include enough people. I love that I can decorate my house with artwork while supporting a good cause. And I love how Ami Simms channeled her grief into something so productive and promising -- what a tribute to her mother.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
They didn't call it Alzheimers back then, but I'm sure that my grandmother suffered from it in her last years, so I would certainly like to see more research before I get to that point in my life!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
look for new ways to spread the word to the community at large, beyond quilt circles.
Donor & I buy their quilts in Houston, and hope to sew some one day.
