Ami Simm's dog, Scooter, that has attracted the attention of the Huffington Post and ABC's Good Morning America. After the all the effort Ami has put into getting recognition for the AAQI, it's her dog that gets all the attention.
We'd like to give a bit more attention to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative by having you vote for the AAQI. Daniel J. Andoni, a local attorney in Flint, Michigan, pledges 3% of his net profits to a local charity each month. Instead of deciding which deserving nonprofit gets his donation, he uses crowd sourcing: visitors to his website cast their vote for one of five charities. The one with the most votes at the end of the month wins the donation.
The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is one of the charities listed for the month of June! They are off to a fabulous start, but it's the charity with the most votes at the END of the month that counts. To pull this off, we need to keep growing the numbers. Every vote counts.
The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative® is a national, grassroots charity whose mission is to raise awareness and fund research. The AAQI auctions and sells donated quilts, and sponsors a nationally touring exhibit of quilts about Alzheimer's.
