As social distancing and physical isolation became a part of our daily routines, we began to understand the overwhelming feelings of loss and loneliness being separated from the community can bring us—feelings that people living with dementia experience in their normal, day-to-day lives.
At the Alzheimer Society, we strive to do everything we can to minimize those feelings of loneliness and isolation by providing people living with dementia and their care partners access to our social and recreation programming. We have continued to offer many of our programs and services virtually, but we need your help to continue.
That’s why we created Social with a Purpose.
Use your Social with a Purpose fundraiser as an excuse to get together with your friends, family, and community! Do you already have a scheduled virtual gathering with your loved ones? Turn it into a fundraiser! From an online card game with friends, spicing up your Zoom meeting with a game of BINGO, or creating your own way to virtually get together with your friends and family, you can support people living with dementia by turning your virtual social gathering into a fundraiser!
This kit is for hosts to use as their Social with a Purpose handbook! It includes tips on how to host a virtual event, how to use video conferencing platforms, and promotional materials like social media and an email!
Are you interested in hosting a Social with a Purpose but don’t know where to begin? We’ve got you covered with our easy to use Social with a Purpose digital kits! Ranging from how-to host your own Paint Night, Cooking lessons and more, downloadable fundraising kits and resources will make planning your fundraiser that much easier!
Although we cannot physically be together, stay connected with friends and family by showing those living with dementia and their care partners that we care and want the same for them. We can’t wait to see what amazing Social with a Purpose fundraisers you host!
