Ariana Grande has officially declared who her favorite person in the world is … and it’s her grandpa! For his 90th birthday, she shared a super-sweet pic of the two of them.
The man who gets all the love in Ariana’s heart also gets a kiss from him in this Instagram photo:
Not everyone is as close to their grandparents as Ariana is, but there might be something you can do to strengthen the bond between generations. About half of senior citizens use the Internet, and the other half might have difficulty reaching out and communicating with family and friends. Or maybe they do have the Internet, but since technology is moving a mile a minute, they’re not sure how to work with things like Skype.
That’s why DoSomething.org and Intel have come up with the Grandparents Gone Wired campaign. It’s about teaching your grandparents (or another senior individual) how to get connected online and use new technology. It’s shown that when older people can use the Internet, their chance of developing depression drops 34%.
Annnd … you might even get prizes. If you snap a pic of yourself teaching Grandpa or Grandma how to use a new form of technology, it could enable you to win a $4,000 scholarship! So whadaya waiting for? It’s time to get a new generation surfing the web, because if you post on Instagram about how much you love your grandparents, it would be nice if they could see it, right?
