What can you do in 60 seconds? September 14, 2016

Filed under: My Causerie — mycauserie @ 7:00 am

I still remember my 4th grade teacher, Gloria Troute, reciting this encouraging little mantra: 60 seconds makes one minute, what can I do in it? 60 minutes makes one hour, now I’ll work with all my power!

You may not think you can accomplish much in 60 seconds, but in reality, you could do a lot. In 60 seconds, you could click this link and make a tax-deductible donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.

In 2012, every 68 seconds someone in the United States developed Alzheimer’s disease; in 2014, it was every 67 66seconds. Now in 2016, every 66 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease. But your donation could stop the clock on this devastating disease.

I am asking everyone I know to please make a donation. It can be 66 cents, $6.66, $66 or $6,600! Honestly, I will appreciate every single 66-cent donation, so PLEASE consider making a donation! You may not think it will make much of a  difference, but those 66-cent donations could be a game changer in the heartbreaking numbers game that Alzheimer’s disease is playing in our country. Consider the following staggering statistics:

The statistics are frightening, but when you or someone you love become one of the numbers, the fear becomes much more real. I remember, so I fight. I remember, so I walk. I remember, which is why I am asking you to join me.cover-photo

60 seconds makes one minute, what can you do in it? You can click this link and make a small, but significant donation to the Alzheimer’s Association. Together, we can stop the clock on Alzheimer’s…now that’s working with all our power.

Join the fight; pull up a chair and let’s talk.
