General

  • Mission:
  • To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's.

  • Overview:
  • Dear Sir or Madam,

    I work in PR for a publicly traded home décor company – and I deal with donation requests all the time. I sift through them each morning and weed out the organizations with political and religious affiliations. I research the requester. I decide who to donate to and who not to donate to. I know how many you have to read through each day. Even still, and even though I know this is a complete long shot, I’m sincerely hoping that someone reads this and takes a moment to genuinely consider a donation on my behalf.

    This year, to support those affected by Alzheimer’s, I’m participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s to raise funds and awareness to fight this disease. My mother suffers from early-onset dementia and has been very sick since I was 15. Our family has been dealing with the ripple effects of this disease, and each day is a struggle. This is why I feel so strongly about supporting the Alzheimer’s Association.

    I won’t give you stats or numbers, because we all know how widespread and devastating this disease can be. Unfortunately, nearly all of us have been touched by this disease in some way. I will say, though, that the Alzheimer’s Association has no political or religious affiliations, and all of the funds donated go towards research, care and support. They are sincerely dedicated to finding prevention methods, treatments and an eventual cure for the disease. For people like me, who have had so many in their families suffer, it is quite literally a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I plan to raise at least $5,000 to support the Alzheimer’s Association, which provides consultations, information, referrals, and support programs to our community – both locally and nationally.

    I know I can do this with your support. I ask that you take just a minute to visit my online fundraising headquarters at http://act.alz.org/goto/thebarbies to learn more and make a donation. You can also mail a donation using the enclosed pledge form. Checks should be made payable to the Alzheimer's Association and are, of course, tax deductible.

    Thank you in advance for your time and generosity.

    Warmly,

    Jessie K. Land
