Hilarity for Charity (HFC) is a movement led by comedian Seth Rogen to inspire change and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease among the millennial generation.
What they do:
Care: Hilarity for Charity and the Home Instead Senior Care network are working together to award in-home care grants throughout the United States and Canada to those providing care to their loved ones living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias through their Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Relief Grant Program.
Support and Awareness: Hilarity for Charity’s goal is to mobilize a new generation of Alzheimer’s advocates while supporting young people who are currently affected by the disease. They provide a variety of support and awareness initiatives, including a Google hangout support group; focusing on the unique needs of people under the age of 40 navigating their way through this disease and "This Is Alzheimer's"; a feature length film documenting what Alzheimer’s looks like for three different families facing the disease.
Research: Each year, Hilarity for Charity earmarks a percentage of revenue to cutting edge research through the Alzheimer’s Association’s International Research Grant Program.
