Time’s Almost Up!

It’s the final hours of our campaign with Groupon! Between Tuesday and Today, Groupon has been featuring an ad for donations to our Medic Alert + Safe Return program. MedicAlert + Safe Return is a 24-hour nationwide emergency response service for individuals with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia who wander or have a medical emergency. We provide 24-hour, nationwide assistance, no matter when or where the person is reported missing. The cost of enrollment is around $55, which as you can imagine can be extremely difficult for a family dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease to meet.

We don’t want cost to keep anyone from keeping their loved one safe, so we provide scholarships to those who need assistance, and there is also no cost to enroll if your loved one has already wandered. To help support this program, Groupon is running the ad for donations to go directly to providing those enrollments. Our goal is to have 138 people give. Each donation is set at $10, so if 138 people give we will raise enough to provide 25 people with enrollment into the program!

We’re over 90 donors now, and we’re so close to reaching our goal! Please help us hit 138 by tweeting, posting, emailing and sharing this link: http://www.groupon.com/deals/gt-alzheimers-association-georgia

Donations can save lives! Help us keep those who wander safe in Georgia!
