'Not even our husbands knew!'

Meet the women who have been secretly delivering cakes to underprivileged families for over 30 YEARS


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...

And how do they find their targets?

Observation and intel gathering of course!


'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.'

Ninja Grannies in the dead of night! One even goes by the code name "Sunny"
Stealth is the name of the game with these girls. Apparently it's better than doing laundry...



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.

I promise it's worth the read.

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

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

Bless them.

I find myself gravitating towards this more and more these days. It's as if my soul is so overloaded with all the negative that it needs to purge and restore.

This one helped. )

Yes, quite the commitment.

Doing something like this short time is one thing, doing it regularly is another. BUT...for 30 yrs with absolutely no recognition? Simply 9 true hearts that found their calling.

Yep, the first that came to mind when I read the title was granny with her walker popping out of the shadows to take down some unsuspecting criminal.

Wow, we agree on two things so far!

It is extremely nice to see normal people to good things; it is sad that doing good things seems so extraordinary these days….

The elderly are about the only 'nice' people left on this planet... perhaps because they're from a more civil time.
