The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) has made it incredibly easy for anyone to creatively participate in finding a cure for this disease.  The Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt Project has already received over 2,500 mini art quilts.  These art quilts are auctioned off the first ten days of every month with all proceeds donated towards Alzheimer's research.  The quilts can be made in any theme and with a USPS mailer-friendly size maximum of 9"X12", they can be easily delivered to auction.  For more details, please visit the AAQI site.

If you are not a quilter you can bid on one of these handmade beauties in their 'slow and silent' auction.  The July auction closes at ten o'clock eastern time July 10th, but in just two weeks the August quilts will go on the block.  If you'd like to see an exhibit of some of the quilts you're in luck as The West Virginia Quilter's Inc is hosting "Alzheimer's; Forgetting Piece by Piece" July 17-19 at The Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown, WV.  You can also purchase a show catalogue, or nifty quilt postcards at their site to help spread the word and take action in the cause.
