Give two gifts at one time

It's November, and that means it is time to start buying everyone on your list that extra special holiday gift. It is also the time of the year that most people think about giving to others through charities. Well, wouldn't it be nice if you could use your holiday money to do both at the same time? Now you can.

November also happens to be Alzheimer's awareness month. During this time of year, you could shop at the Alzheimer's Foundation web site, and 100% of the proceeds from your purchase would go to the Alzheimer's Foundation. They have some lovely jewelry that symbolizes where the gift is coming from, the heart. You can see a picture of the jewelry here:

Alzheimer's a disease that effect entire families, as the patient who is in the advanced stages of the disease is unable to care for themselves. This puts an incredible amount of stress on the family and caregivers. Right now, there in no cure for Alzheimer's but research is ongoing for a cure. In the meantime, it is vitally important to make life as happy, safe, and productive for people with this disease, and their families.

If you know someone who is a caregiver to an Alzheimer's patient, the Alzheimer's Foundation also offers a 4-part DVD training series that can help make the process of caring for this loved one much easier and more beneficial for both the caregiver and the one being cared for.

Also, be sure to check out the Quilt to Remember store for more gift ideas that can help Alzheimer's patients and those who care for them. Until there is a cure, we need to help those who are helping those who have this degenerative disease.
