So, you may notice that this post is going up at 12:01 am. That is because the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's event is offically started!Katie Cotton, founder of Paper Makeup Stamps asked me to help and I was on board... here is what she told the DT members...
"A bit back, I was contact by Susanna Boyd (a friend of mine, and the founder of Paper Craft Planet) and she asked if I would help and be a sponsor for a fundraising event she was hosting with Jen Tapler. I of course said that I'd love to help out! I just love Susanna! She told me all about the event, to be called Stampin' Out Alzheimers, and why she and Jen were putting it on. "
Alzheimer's is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States. This was a fact that I had no idea of! 5.3 million people suffer from it including Jen Tapler's father and Susanna's grandmother. My father died of a very similiar dememtia and my friend, Lisa Kind's father passed away from this disease as well. It is something that affects so many and at this point, there is no cure.
