Grandparents Day

Do Something Grand All Year Long!

Generations United celebrated Grandparent’s Day 2020. We changed the outdated way in which many grandparents felt they were seen by working with Aspercreme to show that grandparents today are more active than ever. 

You can help too by sharing your photos of active grandparenting on social media using #LoveIsGrand. For each photo shared, Aspercreme will make a contribution to Generations United’s Grandfamilies COVID- 19 response fund to support grandfamilies. Happy #GrandparentsDay! #Aspercreme #DoSomethingGrand

Since 2012, Generations United has spearheaded an annual campaign to encourage all generations to Do Something Grand and engage with another generation on Grandparents Day.

This year’s theme was COVID-19 and Racial Equity. Leading up to Grandparents Day, Generations United and our national Grand Partners shared Grand Resources on COVID-19, racism, bias and injustices and how it impacts Black and Brown people.

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?

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.
