Hello fellow Lewy Warriors,
First and foremost we want to wish you all a Happy (and Healthy) Canada Day today! We hope you are enjoying the sunshine with people who you love. This is a bit of a longer post as we have a few different exciting things to share with you today.
Firstly, our CLBDI Facebook group will be up and running in the next few days. I encourage anyone who wishes to connect with us and the community to look us up. We will share the link with you when we go live if you'd like to join in on the conversation.
We've added a few news articles, video playlists and resources over on our LBD Resources page including a link to the Australian dementia website. I urge you to spend some time there when you have some free time. The site is updated regularly so keep checking back.
And lastly, we have an update on our donation numbers to share with all of you! As of last Friday we have raised $6,380! Absolutely incredible. Thank you to each and every person who donated. The money will go directly to Robarts and fund Canadian LBD research. It is so wonderful to feel like we are making a difference and it is thanks to people like you.
On that note, we should let you all know that we have switched to quarterly donation summaries so the next total will be delivered in September. There will be no donation update for August. As things progress and the coronavirus situation begins to be better controlled, society will open up more and we will have much more to share.
For now we are wishing you the best on this sunny Canada Day. Enjoy it.
All the best,
The CLBDI blog is run by Advisory Board member Joseph Daniel.
