Disclosure: We are proud to partner with Dove Men+Care in its #ThereToCare campaign.
City Dads Group members around the nation marked Grandparents’ Day Sunday with a lot of love and a little help from our organization’s frequent partner, Dove Men+Care.
The grooming products company generously sent a few dozen of our fathers framed photos of the dads, their kids, and one of their grandfathers along with a shaving kit filled with Dove Men+Care goodies for the father who helped conceive these last two generations. Our fathers used #ThereToCare across multiple social media platforms to talk about the gifts for their fathers and about how passing down grooming advice to their own children reminded them when they received advice from their own fathers.
Here’s some of those posts:
#DoveMenPartner I have partnered with @dovemencare to help celebrate #grandparentsday. As I recall, haircuts, shaving, and other self-care tips usually came in tandem with life advice, chats, and small talk. Grandparents are the original dads who were #theretocare, and so it was special that my kids had and opportunity to celebrate them. And it is my job as a dad to carry on that tradition.
I partnered with @dovemencare this #grandparentsday to recreate last years memory! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 Had way too much fun doing it with the family! Did you know 8 out of 10 dads say teaching their children how to care for themselves has strengthened their own hygiene and grooming habits?? Yup dads step their game up when they teach their kids! Make your presence felt! #FatherhoodIsLit #ThereToCare #dovemenpartner #dovemendad
I'm partnering with @dovemencare to celebrate Grandparent's Day! 77% of dads today say when they pass down advice to their kids about hygiene and grooming, they're reminded of when their parent taught them. My dad was always #ThereToCare and we're hoping this care package reminds him of how much he's appreciated on #GrandparentsDay. #DoveMenPartner #DoveMenDad

This #GrandparentsDay, I was happy to partner with @dovemencare, who sent this awesome care package (dopp kit & DM+C products, framed photo of our 3 generations) for me & my son to give my dad! 💗 As with so many things in parenting, when I teach my son about grooming, I'm reminded of when my dad taught me. Can't wait to teach him to shave! 💈 #theretocare #dovemencare #citydads #generations #family #familyphoto #grandpa #gaydad #parenting #fatherhood
I'm happy to partner with @dovemencare to celebrate #grandparentsday and was even happier that they sent me a wonderful care package with a framed picture of my father, my son, and me, all three generations of the men in our family in one picture! My father raised me in the country, and as with so many different aspects of parenting, it was my Dad who taught me about grooming. These are lessons I'm proud to pass on to my son, right here in the big city! Dad was #theretocare for me, and BIG thanks to #dovemencare for helping me to celebrate him! #dovemencarepartner #dovemenpartner #dovemencare #citydads
The gifts were part of the Dove Men+Care’s latest #ThereToCare campaign. Back in June, City Dads Group members participated in its campaign to thank influential father figures in their lives.
