The Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) is an Internet-driven, grassroots, totally volunteer effort to raise awareness and fund research through art. Founded by Ami Simms in January 2006 because her mother has Alzheimer’s disease. All profit is donated to Alzheimer’s research. Since the AAQI began they have raised more than $157,000 for Alzheimer’s research. 

The first quilts are ready for purchase right now in the AAQI’s “You Snooze, You Lose” Reverse Auction . See a quilt you like? Buy it on the spot. Wait a day and the price goes DOWN! But if you wait too long, somebody else might buy it first! It’s lots of fun and all the profit will fund Alzheimer’s research! Come back often — the page will be updated with new quilts all the time! Details here!
