#GivingTuesday is November 27, 2018.

#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

This year, Altenheim is partnering with the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University to provide the Opening Minds through Art (OMA) program. It is an award-winning, evidence-based, intergenerational artmaking program for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Artmaking and the final artwork give residents purpose. The program also helps others to view those with dementia as vital and creative.

We are asking friends to support the OMA Program by participating in #Giving Tuesday November 27, 2018. Your gift will go directly to training volunteers, to purchase art materials for the projects and to support a planned Altenheim Annual Art Show. Use the button below to make your gift on #GivingTuesday.
