Life in the land of Beads for Memories continues to surprise and take unexpected turns. It seems that the daily London paper called Metro was interested in doing a column about the Walk For Memories. Our friends at the Alzheimer Society of London-Middlesex told their reporter about Alysha and what she had been up to over the past year with her bracelets. This resulted in an interview, and a feature in the newspaper. We were all very excited, you can read the story by clicking right here.
We hope you are inspired by Alysha's story as much as we are. She will be doing the walk just ten days from now, and we are still looking for donations to reach her goal of $500.00 for the walk. Alysha's mother, Julie, will also have bracelets for sale before and during the walk on a table near the registration area.
The Alzheimer Society has a very easy online donation system, so you can pledge your support directly with a few clicks of the mouse. If you'd like to know more about how the walk helps Alzheimer's patients and their families, you can got to walkformemories.ca, if you would like to pledge funds for Alysha's walk, you can go to her personal page and donate there.
We appreciate any amount you can give, Alzheimer's is a disease that takes tremendous resources to support sufferers and their families, and we want to help the society ease that burden as much as possible.
As always, if you've come to this site only lately, you can read about the start of Beads for Memories at my first post.
Alysha may be making an appearance on Rogers Television in London next week, so come back to the blog this weekend and I will hopefully have details about the exact time and channel.
