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.
