Grandparents’ Day is September 7 – Celebrate with a Phone Call

Celebrate Grandparents’ Day with a Phone Call

grandpaGrandparents’ Day is September 7th.If you can’t be with yours, there’s no better way to share the day and let your grandparents or grandparent figures know how special they are to you than with a phone call – in fact, it’s the communication method they prefer most!1

Technology has completely changed the way that family members communicate with one another. With the increase in cell phone usage and new messaging apps, people no longer have to rely on letters and infrequent visits to remain in touch with family members and specifically their grandparents. In fact, when not in person, 87 percent of adults ages 65 and older prefer talking on the phone to other communication methods such as sending text messages or emails2.

Vonage offers several ways to keep in touch with your grandparents both near and far. From our unlimited3 domestic and international calling plans, to our Vonage Mobile® app that enables free app-to-app voice and video calls4, there’s no excuse not to call your grandparents this Grandparents’ Day (and throughout the year) to let them know how important they are!
