Alzheimer’s Action Day!

September is World Alzheimer's Month. Worldwide, 35 million people and their families are affected by dementia. Join us by raising awareness, reducing stigma and sharing your story. Together, we can help end Alzheimer's.  Tomorrow is Alzheimer’s Action Day, an opportunity to support the Alzheimer’s Association® and help raise awareness of this devastating disease during World Alzheimer’s Month.
On Sept. 21, wear purple, the color of the Alzheimer’s movement, to honor the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and the millions more who care for them. Here are some ways you can go purple and take action:

Wear your support!
Pull out your purple and wear it with pride. Need more gear?
• Check out our shirts, wrist bands and other purple items at
Shop for a Cause.
• This month, CJ Free is proud to introduce a limited edition
bracelet to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. In recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month, 20% of the sales price of bracelets sold from now until September 30 will benefit the Association.

Make a winning bid!
Take part in two eBay auctions running through Sept. 27 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association:
• Win a guitar signed by legendary singer Glen Campbell - now touring the country - who is living with Alzheimer’s disease.
• Meet Celebrity Champion Seth Rogen as a VIP guest at the "Hilarity for Charity" fundraising event next spring.

(In addition, eBay will feature the Alzheimer’s Association from September 17-23, and users will have the option to donate $1 or more at checkout to the Alzheimer’s Association when buying and selling on eBay)

Watch “Who Wants to be a Millionaire!”
Watch the week of Sept. 17 to see contestants compete on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association. Spread the word and ask your friends and family to tune in.

So, be sure to wear purple tomorrow in support of Alzheimer’s Action Day and Alzheimer’s Awareness Month!
