Global Spark of Life Month

August is the month to put a global spotlight on the Dementia Foundation for Spark of Life that raises funds to ignite the ‘spark of life’ in people with dementia.

Two major fundraising and awareness events are being launched during this month:







Dancing for Dementia 

A 12 month campaign initiated by Anika Weiss - the official Children’s Ambassador for the Dementia Foundation for Spark of Life. Anika inspires everyone she meets with her determination, compassion and ability to see through any external disability, to love the beauty within people with dementia.
