Humans of Dementia Storytelling Contest

Apr 11, 2021
The Bob & Diane Fund and Hilarity for Charity (HFC) are partnering for the 2nd annual Humans of Dementia Storytelling Contest (writing and photography).
Help us reach high school and college students in an effort to collect heartfelt memories about those who may be suffering, or those who have passed away due to Alzheimer's Disease.

This year, we want to stress that we are accepting written AND photo storytelling entries.

Please share with your students, friends, social, etc. Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you so much!

If you're a high school or college student, we urge you to join the Humans of Dementia movement. All you have to do is profile someone who is living with or someone who has passed from Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, using written or photo storytelling. Nearly 50 million people worldwide have dementia. Join the cause and share your story.  DEADLINE:  April 22, 2021

Learn more about the contest today:

HFC | Bringing Light to Alzheimer’s
HFC is a nonprofit movement, led by Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen, whose mission is to care for families facing this disease, educate young people about living a brain-healthy life, and activating the next generation of Alzheimer's advocates.
