There's a thief out there. And it's robbing people's memories. It's robbing their ability to talk. It's robbing their ability to eat, walk, get dressed, shower, or recognize their loved ones. It's robbing people of their ability to be humans. It's called Alzheimer's, and it's a real mother f@#ker and we've got to do something about it. And we've got to do something now.
The CrowdRise Holiday Challenge is donating $100,000 to the charity that raises the most money. I started my own charity fund, Hilarity for Charity, benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association and we could really use that money!
You all rock my world! Thanks!
PS – Curious about the Hilarity For Charity? HFC takes a new approach to fighting a terrible disease by raising funds and awareness among the millennial generation. All monies raised through Hilarity for Charity help families struggling with Alzheimer’s care today, increase support groups nationwide and fund cutting edge research through the Alzheimer’s Association.
Did you know:
Today more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’sdisease. And they’re not all old and gray. People are developing Alzheimer's in their 30's, 40's, and 50's.
Another American develops Alzheimer’s disease every 68 seconds.
By 2050, as many as 16 million Americans will have the disease and an American will develop the disease every 33 seconds. (how old will you be in 2050?)
Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.
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. The ONLY one.
