Please visit the Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative website. This is a grass-roots effort to increase awareness and fund research into this terrible blight. There's a monthly auction of little quilts donated by people to help in the effort, and there's also a link to a webstore where you can buy AAQI clothing. Quilter Ami (that's "aaah-me") Simms is the driving force behind this effort -- if you don't know who she is, go to AmiSimms.com to meet her. You'll love her, as I do. I've won 3 little quilt gems in previous auctions, and bid on many, many more. Go ahead -- take a look. You will be caught up in the wonder and maybe you'll want to donate one (or more!) little quilts yourself.
