Here is another reason that we just love grandpas.
A retired marking executive is now known as the "NCU Grandpa". David Deutchman volunteers at an Atlanta hospital a couple times a week as a 'volunteer baby buddy' for premature babies whose parents can't be with them. During the week, he can be seen in the PICU holding the babies and later in the week making rounds in the NICU. He has been volunteering for over 12 years.
Deutchman was asked by a man off camera what he gets out of volunteering with the babies. His response, "Well the reward of doing something that's meaningful. Something that matters to him."
