Grandparents Day 2019 is Sunday, September 8th… Let’s celebrate!

How often is there a social media challenge for grandparents? Well, here it is!

We are challenging grandparents to redefine who today’s grandparents are. Who are you? Are you an exercise fanatic? Can you spin just as fast as your adult kids? Are you the best baker around? Do you tell the funniest jokes? Do you volunteer and want us all to know about it? Are you an artist, a musician, a yoga teacher? Do you have a job? What are you?

Make a video (no longer than 59 sec), and please post it on Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag: #grandparentslink2019
