  • Alabama Securities Commission
  • Investor Protection Trust
  • Oxford Health
  • New Beacon Hospice
M4A has been working with the Pelham Police Department to provide our Dementia Friendly Training for all of their police officers. The training will take place the entire week of August 13, 2018. We are very excited to work with them and upon completion of their training, the Pelham Police Department will receive their official designation!
A SPECIAL NOTE AND UPDATE FROM LYNDA EVERMAN AND KATHY SIGGINS: OUR FRIENDS AND ADVOCATES FOR MAKING AVAILABLE THE ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE SEMIPOSTAL STAMP AVAILABLE ACROSS THE NATION
 
Hi M4A friends! We have just seen the latest figures regarding sales of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Semipostal Stamp. In it’s first 7 months on the market, three million stamps have been sold to raise $471,000 for NIH funded research. These figures are reflected on the USPS website: https://about.usps.com/corporate-social-responsibility/semipostals.htm
 
As all of you know, the first class stamp sells for .65 each and is available at most post offices, online at https://store.usps.com/store/product/buy-stamps/alzheimers-S_564204 and by toll-free phone order at 1-800 STAMP-24.
 
Purchasing, using, giving it as gifts, etc. provides an inexpensive but meaningful way to support families currently facing dementia and to honor the memory of those we’ve lost to this cruel disease. Thank you all for your efforts in promoting the Alzheimer’s semipostal. Let’s keep the momentum going to meet our goal of raising over $1 million for Alzheimer’s research by the end of the year!  
 
Together we can - and will - make a difference.
 
With gratitude,
 
Lynda and Kathy
