For three decades, nine women have kept a covert baking operation so under wraps that not even their husbands knew about it. They call themselves 'The 9 Nanas,' and have been secretly whipping up, and delivering hundreds of pound cakes during the middle of the night in a grand scheme to help those in need. - See more at: www.cracktwo.com...
'We drive through low-income neighborhoods and look for homes with fans in the window. That told us that the people who live there don't have air-conditioning. 'Or we see that there are no lights on at night, which means there is a good chance their utilities have been turned off. Then we return before the sun came up, like cat burglars, and drop off a little care package.' The women, who consider themselves sisters, gather in the darkness at 4am to begin their daily routine, where they whip up their cakes and deliver them in the dark.'
The ladies began brainstorming, and one of the sisters suggested they all start doing their own laundry, putting put the money saved to good use.
She said: 'I admit, I protested at first. There’s just something about laundering that I don’t like. But I was outnumbered! So among the nine of us, we’d put aside about $400 a month and our husbands never noticed a thing. Their shirts looked just fine.'
The women started eavesdropping at the local beauty shop or when they were picking up groceries, and when they heard about a widow or a single mother who needed some help, they would anonymously pay a utility bill or buy new clothes for the children.
The Nanas would find out where the person lived and send a package with a note that simply read, 'Somebody loves you,' which would always include one of MaMaw Ruth’s special pound cakes.

"Faith-in-humanity restored" stories are always the best.

I was totally hoping the same thing. I pictured night missions and everything, but this is just as acceptable. Although not as much fun.
