A Brave Heart, plus GRAND Social No. 174 link party for grandparents

A Brave Heart

A Brave Heart film

My husband and I watched an incredible documentary yesterday called A BRAVE HEART: THE LIZZIE VELASQUEZ STORY, courtesy a free, no-obligation screener from the filmmakers. It's the amazing, heartbreaking, inspiring, uplifting story of a young woman who wouldn't let bullying and hatefulness get her down, but used it to spiral to a powerful position of helping lift and support others.

I had seen snippets of Ms. Velasquez's story before but had no idea until viewing the film the depth and importance of who she is, what she's done, and what she continues to do to help end bullying. She's amazing. She's brave. She's unforgettable.

The film opened Friday in select theaters, On Demand and iTunes Movies. I've been given a coupon code for Grandma's Briefs readers to receive 20 percent off the purchase or rental of A BRAVE HEART: THE LIZZIE VELASQUEZ STORY right here on Vimeo. The code is ABHCLEVER, to be entered when the "apply promo codes" option appears when renting or buying the film.

I hope you find A BRAVE HEART: THE LIZZIE VELASQUEZ STORY as moving as I did. Please do share your thoughts after viewing it. And do keep up with the film via the ImWithLizzie.com website as well as on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/abraveheartfilm) and Instagram (@abraveheartfilm), and by following the social media hashtags #ImWithLizzie and #TheHighRoad.

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
  • Adding your link adds you to my weekly email reminder the GRAND Social is live. Feel free to unsubscribe from that email if you no longer wish to receive reminders.
