Chicago, IL, September 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- GrandBox will send care packages to families all across America for National Grandparents Day. The company sends a monthly care package to senior family members. They look to promote a healthy, connected family.
National Grandparents Day is September 7th, and it was created to champion those in nursing homes. GrandBox was created specifically to bring joy into the lives of seniors in nursing homes. For this month’s GrandBox, the company is putting together a special box to ensure every grandparent is loved and taken care of. It will include specialty candies, a photo album (filled with pictures of the receiver’s loved ones), and more.
“We wanted to connect families all across America,” said Joe Yeoman, Co-Founder of GrandBox. “It’s awful that we don't see our grandparents, great aunts, mothers and fathers enough. GrandBox and Grandparents Day is our way to show them we're thinking about them, we love them, and that we'll see them soon."
GrandBox has been designed specifically for the 42 Million Americans over the age of 65. With 3.2 million Americans living in nursing homes, with 900,000 in assisted living, GrandBox looks to help keep families in contact. For as low as $30.00/month, anyone can send an older loved one a curated package that includes something fun, something tasty, something necessary, and something personal from the sender, like photos and newsletter. Each package is a mystery for the receiver, and GrandBox lets the senders know ahead of time what their loved one will be receiving.
GrandBox, http://mygrandbox.com, is a monthly care package for older family members and seniors. They make it easy to connect loved ones all across the USA. Every month, they select great gifts, healthy products, and things to make your loved ones smile.
National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
