The Caregiver's Army needs lots of help - and you can help from your home or in your community.

  1. Find Your Members Of Congress Using Your Zip Code.

Go to
http://www.alz.org/Advocacy/join/write.asp and type in your zip code. Submit your search and the names and addresses of your Members of Congress will appear. You can also find Members of Congress by last name, state or committee assignments. Warning: About 1% of the time, a zip code search will indicate that you have two House members because the district is split within a specific zip code.

  1. Write Your Members Of Congress A Personal Letter Or E-Mail Message.

After you find your Members of Congress http://www.kintera.org/siteapps/advocacy/search.aspx?c=mmKXLbP8E&b;=213028 follow the directions below. Click the View Detail button to get his or her address and then click the Write Legislator button to compose your letter or click to see a Sample Letter. Congressional offices (like our entire society) are becoming more and more technology driven. Generally, as long as there is an identifiable return address and you are an area constituent, e-mail will be treated with as much respect and impact as a conventional letter. Sending bulk e-mail or spamming congressional offices with form letters is not appropriate or helpful to our cause.

A new way to help the Caregiver's Army get the message out. Carolyn's book is out! Read all about "Poetry From The Heart By an Alzheimer's Caregiver" and find out how to order your copy. Proceeds go to Caregiver's Army
