This campaign is to give back to a selfless woman with a lot of heart and even more to give. The world's grandmother, also known as Grandma Betty, is inspiring others to be happy even when faced with life's toughest challenge.  

Raised in the church, Betty Jo Simpson was taught never to deny anyone in need. This lead her to adopt and raise three children, caring for them and loving them as if they were her biological family.  She worked 12 hour days to support the family, and retired when Zach was born to care for him while Hope and Dave (Zach's parents) worked.
Grandma lost her husband, Clarence, to cancer in 2006 then her daughter Billie to cancer in 2011, and now she has been diagnosed with cancer herself in 2013 but remains happy and optimistic.  When asked what keeps her so positive, she said “life is about making others happy and there is no other way to live.”  

The adorably, darling Grandma Betty has made a splash on Instagram by dancing, being happy and a lot more dancing. With miles of smiles at every turn, Grandma Betty's has become “The World's Grandma”, all while documenting her days fighting Cancer. Grandma Betty's beaming message of positivity has inspired thousands to live happily.


As a way to document the rest of her journey, Zach, her grandson, started an Instagram account for her: @GrandmaBetty33

In three short months, Grandma's positive posts have inspired over 500,000 people to be happy, love each other, and do good to those around them.
