A World Without Alzheimer’s?

A friend of mine recently gave me a wonderful opportunity to work with the Blondes Vs. Brunettes of Dallas, a group who hosts a powder puff flag football game each year to raise money for the Greater Dallas Chaper of the Alzheimer’s Association. (Don’t let the phrase “powder puff” fool you though. These girls are SERIOUS about their football.)

I’m sure you are like many people out there (myself included), and know of at least one person who has been affected by this horrible disease. According to this video created by the Alzheimer’s Association this year, an estimated 5.4 Million Americans are living with the disease. It is the sixt leading cause of death in the United States and the ONLY cause of death among the Top 10 that cannot be prevented. So staggering to me.

At this year’s event, these amazing ladies announced that they raised over $250,000 to help support the Alzheimer Association’s mission. It is the largest amount raised by any Blondes Vs. Brunettes organization throughout the country…. and all in a matter of a couple of months! Now, these ladies obviously needed a way to say thank you to these donors, and my friend was kind enough to refer me as an option! I have had such a great time working on thank you notes for these ladies, and getting to see all of the photos that they picked for their cards. Here’s a little peek at some of the finished products!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My sincere congratulations and THANKS goes out to these ladies for all of their hard work!

There are several BVB organizations around the country, so next time you see the event happening in your hometown I highly suggest you check them out… and maybe make a donation. :)
