Puzzles to Remember


This week PuzzlesToRemember received a $250 donation from Dreyer’s. The money was used to ship out the puzzles that were collected by Philips Corporation. About 12 Alzheimer’s facilities are receiving boxes of puzzles for their patients to enjoy.

This is the meaning of microphilanthropy: each person/company doing just some small thing within their capabilities builds to make the world a much better place.

Here is a photo of someone enjoying her life just a little more because of Dreyer’s and Philips:

Puzzles to Remember



Philips Healthcare in Andover MA has taken on collecting puzzles for PuzzlesToRemember as an important project. Yesterday, they donated 148 puzzles. They have also publicized the cause on their internal website, and employees from many departments have been contributing.

In January, I will have the opportunity to visit their company and give a presentation about PuzzlesToRemember and, possibly, about some of the Alzheimer’s research I am doing at Boston Medical Center. The Philips employees have decided to continue collecting puzzles, showing their commitment to help patients who can benefit from this activity.

Below is a photo of the puzzles Philips Corporation donated yesterday. Even the soccer ball can be useful as tossing a ball around the room is often used as a physical therapy exercise for Alzheimer’s patients.

Here is a beautiful photo of the Empire State Building lit up in purple to celebrate National Alzheimer’s Month. In the words of a three-year-old whose grandmother has Alzheimer’s:

"All the people who forget, like grandma, are being remembered by the people who are able to remember!"
