What is AFA? Here is the Mission Statement of AFA:
"To provide optimal care and services to individuals confronting dementia, and to their caregivers and families—through member organizations dedicated to improving quality of life."
AFA stresses that while they seek a cure and it is so important to do so they agree...they also want everyone to recognize there must be quality care for those who suffer from the disease as well (they have a great DVD Training Program in the eStore). You should know that during the holiday season, this is a great time to give a donation or simply shop their awesome eStore for a fabulous holiday gift! Give a gift that can make someone's day and make someone else's life!
When you shop the Alzheimer's Foundation eStore you are purchasing TWO things which is a "deal" if you asked me!
#1 You are buying a creative/unique gift for someone.
#2 You are helping the Alzheimer's Foundation with your kind and thoughtful purchase.
Now, you are wondering...well, what can I buy from a Foundation eStore exactly? Great question...here is my answer:
Quite a few things that are very nice and stylish as well!
*They have Sterling Silver Necklaces, Bracelets (with leather band) and Lapel Pins! All with the "Heart of Care" pendant on them. Price Range: $21.95-$39.95
*You will also find items with the AFA "Quilty to Remember" logo in their Quilt Store! From keychains to teddy bears, shirts, and calendars; Ranging in price from: $2.00-$14.00
*Also, you will find a very useful DVD that explains the Alzheimer's Disease, Personal Care Principles, Management of Behavior and Safe Home Care. A great product to educate people on Alzheimer's. The price is $34.95 for this DVD Training Program. This product is so important in ensuring safe care for those with this disease.
These prices are quite the deal and so unique for that special person on your Christmas List! All the proceeds go to benefit the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA). What a great gift, stocking stuffer and Cause most importantly!
Have a wonderful Holiday Season and Happy Shopping!
