Point of Purchase Program

Each year, thousands of paper pin-up flowers are sold in local stores, restaurants, banks and other businesses across the country to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s. At the point of purchase, tellers, waitresses and cashiers offer the flowers to patrons in exchange for a donation. The business then displays all of the flowers sold to create a community-driven awareness display in the store.

Our Point of Purchase Program is a free and easy campaign for your business to enhance its reputation as a charitable leader and fulfill its social responsibility in the community. Interested in participating? Register your business today!

Casual for a Cause

In the Casual for a Cause program, a company encourages its employees to dress down or wear jeans for a day (or more) in exchange for a small donation (usually $5) to the Alzheimer's Association. We can provide you with a sticker (or you can use your own) to be given to each employee that pays the donation to dress down. By wearing our sticker that day, employees display their commitment to the cause. Register today!
