AAQI and World Alzheimer's Day

World Alzheimer’s Day is Today, Wednesday, September 21st
Please change your FaceBook profile picture temporarily to the photograph of a person who has/had Alzheimer’s that you wish to honor and remember on September 21st and always.
Please include this statement in your status update:
I support the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative at

If you make a $5 donation to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative before midnight on Wednesday, post the invoice number generated by your donation to the AAQI FaceBook page at: *
We will capture the image of your loved one from your profile picture and add it to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative 2011 Virtual Wall of Remembrance where it will remain for one year. Names will not accompany photographs.
If you are not on FaceBook, or wish to make multiple donations to honor more than one person, email one photograph of each of your loved ones and the invoice number generated by your donation ($5 for each photo) to Diane at Pictures may be cropped and sized to fit the wall.
As it is somewhat time consuming to snag and post your profile picture, please do not change it until you see it appear on the AAQI Update Blog, above. It may take several days to keep up! We’ll do our best.
