I was reading this article about the Alzheimer's Project and decided to share it with you.
This is a very good example of how creativity can be used to raise Alzheimer's awareness and to raise money for Alzheimer's projects. Hopefully, this will give others the impetus to come up with creative ideas in their own states or cities.
I would imagine there will be a great deal of conversation around water coolers, and on television, about the painted pianos during November.
This is a good thing and I believe an effective way to raise awareness.
Got a piano anyone?

Look for painted pianos to pop up around town to support Alzheimer's Project
Keep an eye out for purple pianos popping up throughout Tallahassee in November.
The colorful musical instruments are to
promote the fight against Alzheimer's disease,
while supporting Alzheimer's Project Inc. in Tallahassee.
The pianos were the result of City Commissioner Gil Ziffer's enthusiasm to shed light on causes that affect our community. The Alzheimer's Project is a nonprofit organization that provides support and assistance to those with memory disorders and other forms of dementia, along with their caregivers.
The pianos are set to make their debut around on Nov. 1 — the first day of National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.
