Statement: When I became aware of just how much Ami Simms was doing to raise money for Alzheimer's research and saw that the exhibit, Alzheimer's Forgetting Piece by Piece would be coming to Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in a nearby town, I e-mailed her to volunteer my help. Turns out that she needed someone to co-ordinate the exhibit. I became that person and the experience cemented my commitment to helping Ami raise funds. It is inspiring to work with a cause where the money goes where it should go.
Total raised so far: $2,022.93
