We’re excited to announce that the Alzheimers New Zealand is the 4good charity for October – what an epic cause!
Alzheimers New Zealand is a support and advocacy organisation for people with dementia, their carers, family, whanau and community. They do some amazing work and are a perfect fit for 4good.
Check this out scary huh?
Over 43,000 New Zealanders have dementia and this number is set to double every 20 years. This increase is due to the fact that dementia has no cure and New Zealand has an ageing population. Worldwide, dementia is doubling at the same rate, with an estimated 35.6 million people living with dementia throughout the world in 2010.
With that in mind now’s a great time to join 4good and give your $4 donation for October to this terrific organisation.
