Alzheimer's Blogging:

Dear Friend,

As an advocate you understand better than anyone the importance of speaking up for the needs and rights of individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and their families. This month, three different friends of the Association are sending this same message loud and clear. During September, World Alzheimer's Month, these generous donors have given us a great opportunity and have agreed to match , any gift you make to this campaign by September 21 can be doubled, up to $283,000.

That means your gift of $50 can double in value and become $100 and $100 can double to $200. Any amount you give can be worth twice as much!

Each of the three match sponsors have different reasons for supporting the Alzheimer's Association; including advancing research, supporting local chapter programs and honoring a loved one who lived with the disease. But the one thing all three agree on is that we need to do more now to improve the lives of those living with Alzheimer's and provide increased support to their family members and caregivers. These sponsors know that by declaring “The end of Alzheimer's starts with me” they can begin to change the face of this devastating disease.

In the past, you have also demonstrated your commitment to our work through your tireless advocacy efforts. Can we count on you today to make a financial commitment that will double the impact in the fight against Alzheimer's disease? Please join us in the battle against Alzheimer's and give as much as you can to support the estimated 5.4 million Americans who live with the disease.

Thank you for helping to make World Alzheimer's Month a tremendous success.

Many thanks,

Angela Geiger

Chief Strategy Officer
