Here's our story:
There are nine of us (4 sisters, 1 sister-in-love and 4
friends-by-love). And each week we randomly select total strangers for the sole purpose of delivering
a little happiness.
In the past we
targeted two groups: widows and single mommies. We paid their utility bills, car notes, filled pantries and even
purchased computers. It sure felt good, but that sort of drained our savings.
After re-grouping, we came up with this
novel idea that allowed us to cover more ground. Since everybody appreciates the warmth of a grandma, we give the next best
thing. We'd use our pound cakes as a vehicle to fund this on-going project. After all, the cakes are pure, organic and delightful—like a nana's love.
Oh we've been
called "earth angels" "angels without wings" "happiness-happens ambassadors" and even "fairy
grandmothers" but that's not the case. We're just heeding Mamaw Ruth's words, "If you see
a need, fill it." We've been at this for more than 34 years. And darling, with a bumper crop of sadness,
it looks like we'll be doing this for a long time.
