This month is Alzheimers Awareness Month and AFA 30 Days of Teal.

What am i doing to support it?
First of all, i made my Twitter and Instagram Profile pic teal. I make others Profilpics teal too, and i love to do it.
I also changed the design of my page teal & decided to change my headers for this month in teal too.
That´s not all. In a few days (11th November) the 3rd LTTU <3 campaign from David Haydn-Jones starts and the profits will benefit alzfdn.
If you want to know how the story of Less Then Three came to be. Here is the story told by David himself.
It all started with my embarrassing Social Media faux pas.
As people started to find me, I kept seeing <3 popping up in my feeds. As a daft “newb”, I actually thought I was being trolled and that people were rating me unfavorably! That is until the generous community quickly (whilst stifling their laughter, I’m sure) educated me that <3 was an old texting emoji for a heart and was meant to say “LOVE”. Well, haha… THAT felt much better.
Others, thank goodness, soon told me that they too had been confused by it at one time. Phew. Now I wasn’t alone. I had love and empathy coming on my side. Then a lovely woman on Twitter told me that she and her partner actually say, “I Less Than Three You” to each other after I just had used the same turn of phrase; being the cheeky math nerd I am.
Now we had something; OUR official inside joke! It got hash-tagged, re-tweeted, memed, and shortened to #LTTU. It warmed my heart and showed me, a social media critic, what GOOD could come from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Well, now, that mistake, turned joke, turned meme, turned apparel is going to do some good in the world. Profits from the sales will go to benefit my very personal and chosen charity: The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
For my Nana. And my wonderful Grandfather, Aunts, Mother and part-time caregiver who nurtured her and gave comfort.
