Hello Lewy Warriors!
Can you feel it? The weather is warming up and spring is right around the corner. We've got some amazing things planned for when the sun is out but, for now, we'd like to recap our March and tease some exciting news about what we've got coming up.
Firstly, early this month we launched our YouTube channel and the first CLBDI webinar! We have been getting some great feedback and are already planning our next video. In this webinar, we cover some general information about Lewy Body Dementia, share some tips on caring for yourself as a carer and your Loved One with LBD, and offer suggestions on how you can help both at home and in the wider community. If you haven't had a chance to check it out here. Be sure to give us a follow and, if you're feeling generous, a like/share. Everything helps.
We also wanted to share a thank you to Mt. Zion church and staff for allowing us to be a part of their "Beneath The Surface In Waterloo" Lent speaker series. We had a wonderful time speaking about our LBD journey, sharing our experiences, explaining our mission, and talking with members of the church and community. Thank you to everyone who attended, those who made a donation in the days after our presentation, and for all your kind words. We will be out and about in the community more in the near future and can't wait to meet more amazing people like you.
As for our summer plans? Well, our founder Carol is planning something really amazing for our summer fundraiser and we cannot wait to announce it in April. No, it's not another art show... though we are looking at doing another show sometime in the future. We also hope to host some events in the region and, as previously mentioned, get out into the community and speak more.
Keep your eyes on our Facebook page in the coming weeks. Lots to share.
Thank you to everyone who has donated, shared, liked, or reached out to us in March. Our little project keeps growing and growing but only with the help of people like you. We're proud of our community and everything we've been able to do together.
We'll see you in April.
