AFTD Volunteers Wanted! If you are interested in helping to increase awareness of FTD and AFTD in your community, consider volunteering for AFTD’s community outreach project. We are currently looking for volunteers in the New England Region to conduct visits with facility providers. If you would like to learn more about this initiative, please contact AFTD’s New England Regional Coordinator Volunteer, Katie Brandt at email@example.com.
Shattered Dreams Mosaic Art - Valerie Pierce of Salem, NH creates mosaic plates made from broken pieces of glass and porcelain. Val’s husband has FTD, and the plates represent the “shattered dreams” of the life they were meant to live. Twenty percent of the proceeds from her online sales goes to the AFTD.
The Connecticut Frontotemporal Dementia Foundation – The Harvey family of Connecticut created a foundation to raise money for FTD research in memory of their father and husband, Kevin. They are selling beads for charm bracelets with “Harvey’s Hugs” on them; 50% of their sales will benefit AFTD.
