Support the Alzheimer's Foundation

I have blogged about this at my other blog and I am so glad I have the chance to do it here on this blog. I have had a few sad experiences with Alzheimer's patients and can only hope and pray for a cure one day. A good friend of mine deals with this situation on a daily basis because her mother has Alzheimer's. I have seen her mother scared to death of her own husband because of the simple fact that she didn't even recognize him. Can you imagine how, not only the mother, but her dad must feel?

I don't think people realize how hard it can be dealing with an Alzheimer's patient. There is a lot of hard worked involved. Unfortunately, there is a lack of quality care for this disease. That's one of the reasons I am blogging about this today! There is something you can do to help, so listen up. We are all looking for that perfect holiday gift this season so help out by buying your gift at the estore for Alzheimer's. You will be killing 2 birds with one stone by doing this. You get that special someone a gift for Christmas AND by making that purchase through them, you are also donating to a wonderful cause. Every cent will go to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. Sometimes we are selfish and need a little push every now and then to do good things for other people. Well, here's your push. PUSH!

Pass this along to everyone you know and let us all do something charitable this holiday season. Who knows, that neighbor, mail person, or family friend may have someone in their family with this disease and would love to contribute to the foundation as well. It's all about the full circle. I strongly believe that, in order to receive, you must give first. The money raised will help continue and better the care that these individuals need. Please do your part by spreading the word and making a purchase today!
