Springbok Puzzles Donates $500 to Honor the Passing of Dorothy DeMarco

Springbok Puzzles has donated $500 toward providing Springbok’s PuzzlesToRemember to Alzheimer’s facilities.  These puzzles are beautiful, artistic images, provided in 36 large-sized pieces in order to meet the needs of Alzheimer’s patients. 

These funds will allow PuzzlesToRemember to supply puzzles to an additional 30 Alzheimer’s facilities.  I receive consistent feedback about how beneficial these puzzles are to the patients.  They are very calming and put a smile on the faces of these patients.
 
Research is showing that working on puzzles may significantly extend the time during which an Alzheimer’s patient is able to remain cognitively functional in society. 
 
Thank you, Springbok, for developing this line of puzzles.  Thank you, also, for honoring Dorothy DeMarco in this wonderful way.  We all miss her very much.

Below are some images of the puzzles for Alzheimer’s patients, created by Springbok.  They can be ordered here.

Here is the wonderful email I received today from Institucion El Gringo Paisa in Colombia:

Thank you for the shipment of puzzles, we here in Colombia appreciate your generosity. Sincerest apologies for not contacting you sooner.

Institucion El Gringo Paisa has moved to a new location. We have outgrown our original facility and we have been involved in setting up the new one. The patients are delighted using the puzzles and to see the happiness on their faces is a true Blessing. Thank you for the commitment you make in helping others in need.

Success and Happiness to you in the future, Respectfully, Robert K. / El Gringo Paisa
