Thank you to our partners and friends who participated in Generation United’s Do Something Grand campaign for Grandparents Day! Because of you, GrandparentsDay.org came up #1 in Google search results! See other highlights.
Continue Doing Something Grand and join our friends at Bridges Together in celebrating Intergenerational Month! You can also check out our Take Action Guide and Grand Things to Do for ideas on how you can Do Something Grand.
All year round:
Grandparents and Older Adults: We’re asking you to commit to do something grand and share your wisdom, perspectives and key civic values with young people and advocate on their behalf.
Children, Youth, and Younger Adults: We’re asking you to commit to do something grand and connect and serve with your grandparents or older adults in your community.
Grandfamilies: You provide a safe and loving home to your grandchildren or other relatives in your care. We think you are doing something grand for children every day of the year. As part of our week-long celebration of Grandparents Day, Generations United recognizes, honors, and thanks grandfamilies. Want to talk to an expert on grandfamilies? Contact us
Intergenerational Programs: You are doing something grand every time you bring younger and older people together. We’re asking you to plan and coordinate grand intergenerational activism projects.
Together, adults and youth can reach out to decision makers and begin one of the most important dialogues in our history: discussing how, as a country, we can address the many challenges facing future generations—from literacy to health and wellness to financial stability.
