now thats what i call seriously good

i just read about these 9 women who call themselves nanas who kept a secret for thirty years, and the secret was they would get together and save what little money they could together and they would bake a cake, this money and cake would go into what they called a care package, and they would secretly go round the neighbourhood and find out which families need extra help they would find families who had suffered a death or had not enough money to pay the bills, they would then drop off the care package anonymously with the said family and they did this for thirty years with no one knowing, not even their husbands, now that is what i call seriously one of the nicest things i ever heard of and they did it in secrecy so they did not want recognition since then they have been brought into the open but they still continue to do good stuff and i for one think they are brilliant and this is the link to their website :-

please go see i think this is too excellent to ignore

have a fab day everyone

    1. well from what i was reqading turns out one of the husbands noticed the bank account was spending too much money and called out his wife so she got the 9 nanna’s together and they confessed and it was brilliant because then the husbands joined in and helped too then they made a website and sold the cakes to raise even more money and it all amazes me i would give them a medal i put the website up so people go go look maybe buy a cake or something it was just such a ‘let all have faith in (wo)mankind’ moment i love to hear stuff like this such a lot of blog world is negative people ranting or discussing suffering fair enough if thats what does it for them each to their own but i rather read about stuff like this and it makes me see the good in life anyways thank you for commenting have a fab day xx

    Thank you for sharing this! In this world so much is focused on the negative. But wish more stories like this were shared with the world. There is truly wonderful people out there!!

    1. i was so amazed i had to share i love to find that some where there are a few good people doing what they can for people who need it there are so many people i meet especially a lot i can personally think of who claim very verbally very often how they are a good person yet i do not see or hear of them doing any good deeds yet these 9 women quietly got on with it and actually did something very good and i will respect these women with all my heart thank you for your lovely comment and i hope you have a lovely evening xx

  5. Its always nice to hear a good story, we hear too many bad ones today…

    1. i am always grateful there are people like this in the world apart from the good they do the knock on effect is even reading about it makes others feel good have a super day xx
