Fleeting Thoughts

Fleeting Thoughts

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is a national, grassroots charity whose mission is to raise awareness and fund research.  The AAQI auctions and sells donated quilts, and sponsors a nationally touring exhibit of quilts about Alzheimer's.  The AAQI has raised more than $904,000 since January 2006.

Ami Simms of Flint, Michigan is the founder and executive director of the AAQI, a ro1(c)(3) nonprofit operated entirely by volunteers.  She is a quilter and her mother had Alzheimer's.

Thank you to Sherry Whitford for introducing me to this worthy endeavor.
