What is Social with a Purpose?
Social with a Purpose is the newest virtual initiative of 2020. Social with a Purpose is a do-it-yourself fundraiser that promotes the importance of socializing, staying in touch, and building strong, positive relationships with your friends, family, and community.
Why Social with a Purpose?
As social distancing and physical isolation became a part of our daily routines, we began to understand the overwhelming feelings of loss and loneliness being separated from the community can bring us. That’s why we created social with a purpose.
Now more than ever, it is important to find new, creative ways to stay connected to our friends and family and at the same time, raise funds to support important services to help ensure people living with dementia.
How do I host a Social with a Purpose event?
Use your social with a purpose fundraiser to connect with your friends, family, and community! From online card games, spicing up your Zoom meetings with a game of BINGO, or creating your own way to virtually get together, you can support people living with dementia by turning your virtual social gathering into a fundraiser!

Why should I participate?
When you host a social with a purpose event, you help raise much-needed funds for local programs and services for people with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. Your support makes a huge difference in their lives.
Be Blue for Alzheimer's!
In support of Alzheimer’s awareness, invite friends and family to donate $5.00 to the Alzheimer Society of PEI, and wear blue to show your support.
Post your pictures on social media using #BeBlueforAlz and be sure to tag us @AlzheimerPEI!
How can my retail business take part?
Social with a purpose, formally known as “Coffee Break”, can be turned into a fundraiser simply by inviting your friends, family or colleagues to swap a donation for participation in a virtual event. This can be done by Zoom, Facebook Messenger, FaceTime, or any virtual platform!
If you go virtual, don’t forget to include details of your video chat or streaming platform on your fundraising page, use #BeSocialforAlzPEI on your social media posts and add a virtual activity like a quiz.
