Kaitlin Vigil's Fundraiser:

Making 25 Count

THE STORY:

On March 7th, I turn 25 years old. I've come to a point in life where I am often wondering what I can do to change the world. So instead of buying me a gift or a drink for my birthday, I'm asking instead that you considering donating with me to Hilarity for Charity. This organization aims to inspire change and raise awareness among the millennial generation about Alzheimer's disease through the use of comedy. They work alongside the Home Instead Senior Care network to award grants to those providing care to loved ones living with Alzheimer's. Why this charity? My grandma Ollie, one of the most important people in my life, is currently living with Alzheimer's disease. As much as no one in our family wants to admit it, she is not capable of taking care of herself anymore. Members of our family take turns cooking dinner and lunch for her every day, making sure she is eating properly and taking all of her medications. For many years Ollie owned a restaurant called Ol's Diner, where she made the best sopapillas, spanish rice, and breakfast burritos you could ever find. My heart breaks that she is no longer able to cook the way she used to. Ollie has never once thought of herself before another person. She spends her life taking care of others, and never expects anything in return. I'm raising money for this charity because I believe that Ollie, and people in the same boat as her, deserve more in life. Alzheimer’s is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent, cure, or even slow its progression.​ These individuals deserve a cure. They deserve all the support they can get. Hilarity for Charity agrees.
