Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Sunday September 11, 2016 is Grandparent's Day. "The inspiration behind Grandparent’s Day was Marian McQuade. She instigated a campaign in the early 1970s aimed at highlighting the plight of lonely elderly people in care homes and encouraging grandchildren to take advantage of the wisdom and guidance their grandparents could provide. This blossomed into the event known today, which is held each year to both honor grandparents and let them show their love for their grandchildren. It also aims to continue Marian’s original idea of an older generation’s knowledge being passed on to youngsters. There are plenty of ways to celebrate the day, with the official website providing plenty of ideas. This includes youngsters learning about their grandparent’s heritage and history or making family trees. Families can simply spend time together to listen to their elderly relative’s stories and youngsters can volunteer to spend part of the day with the elderly people at a nursing home." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #blog #grandparent #grandparentday #smile #linkinbio #lpt #tweet #twitter #shar #share #wp #fb #follow #like #awesome #grand #parent #great #greatgrandparents #celebrate . @instagram @sharpharmade
