Wink A Promo for Alzheimer's....with love to Cammie!

As many of you know, Cammie introduced her Whimsical Autumn set through Gina K. Designs earlier this month, and is donating all her proceeds to an Alzheimerís charity in memory of the Grandmother she lost to this disease a few months back.

My Father suffered from Dementia, of which Alzheimerís is a form, during the last few years of his life. It was truly painful to watch him morph into someone so completely different and unreachable. I really have empathy for those whose loved ones are afflicted, it is so overwhelming.

Cammie is having a HUGE blog candy extravaganza in honor of National Alzheimerís Day on Sept 21st. Be sure to check it out!

I thought Iíd like to help raise some funds as well in support of the cause, so what Iíve decided to do is two-fold: 1) Starting tomorrow, I am offering a 10% discount on ALL stamps on the site. Use the coupon code Cammie at checkout to receive 10% off all the stamps in your shopping cart. (It wonít discount your other merchandise, just stamps.) The coupon code will run from Wednesday, Sept 17th to Sunday, Sept 21st. 2) I will donate 10% of ALL proceeds (including money spent on other items on the site) to the National Alzheimerís Association. FYI - The discount applies only to retail ordersÖ

I would also invite you to listen to a song that I have played hundreds of times since my Dad passed, and even though itís written from a female perspective, it really gets to the heart of what loving someone with a memory condition means. Itís called Silent House and there are two artists versions, one by Crowded House and one by Dixie Chicks, both are wonderful and I wholeheartedly encourage you to take a listen.

So sorry to hear about your father Kim. My DH's grandfather passed away from Alzheimer's about 8 years ago and his grandmother from Dementia 2 years ago. It is heartbreaking to see the change in the person you love...

How generous of you to offer a discount and donate the proceeds!! You truly are so sweet!!

Kim, my heart feels for you and Cammie. Caring for someone with a mental illness in my opinion is harder than someone with a physical illness. Atleast with a physical illness you feel you can help somewhat. My Dad passed away almost 6 years ago. He suffer from mental status changes because of his physical illness. You, Cammie and Gina have a heart of gold and the Lord will surely bless you all for your kindess.

This is a fabulous idea. I am the Finance Manager for the Alzheimer Society in Saskatchewan and I totally understand what you are going through. My heart and prayers are with you both. Blessings!

This is such a fabulous idea. I know first hand what it is like to be a caregiver, DH has Parkinson's Disease, and they have trouble with executive thinking. I have been taking care of him for for eight years now, and it gets worse every year. My heart goes out to every caregiver.
