What is #BringSeniorsJoy?
The purpose of #BringSeniorsJoy is to help seniors and families find more opportunities to experience a joyful time.
The event can be for an hour or a few hours.
Many seniors find that their days run together with only a few extra activities during holidays.
Let's make their lives feel more meaningful and more joyful by finding projects, events, or entertainment that makes them feel happy and joyful.
What is a #BringSeniorsJoy Scholarship?
Having worked in the senior care market for a very long time, we know a few things about budgets.
Sometimes there just isn't enough marketing budget to do that little extra event that might #BringSeniorsJoy.
So, we developed a little scholarship program designed to repay any organization up to $200 toward the cost of supplies, entertainment, or whatever else is needed.
Of course, you will have to provide receipts, pictures of the event, and a write-up (paragraph) about the event in order to receive the funds.
Each scholarship awards the organization funds (up to $200) to implement a fun, entertaining, meaningful event/day/program for seniors at senior centers, at home alone, in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, rehab centers, adult day centers, and more.
Keep it simple! Have fun.
