THE ALZHEIMER'S ART QUILT INITIATIVE
The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) is a quilter-powered national charity. Their "bread and butter" is the Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts project where they sell donated quilts and use the profits to fund research. Their biggest sale of the year is at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX going on now. Visit their booth in the Exhibit Hall, Row T, and buy a quilt or two or three . . . .
FUND ALZHEIMER'S RESEARCH
Prof. Chris Schaffer with one of the laser systems his research group uses to study blood flow changes in the brain that are linked to Alzheimer's disease.
The AAQI has just awarded a $30,000 grant to Cornell University to study Alzheimer's disease: http://www.alzquilts.org/
I support the AAQI by donating quilts to their cause, and I'll help sell quilts in their booth tomorrow. Stop by and say "Hi."
