Anonymous Nine Nanas Exposed
The Daily Mail wrote this expose:
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.
And then before anyone can catch a glimpse of them, they quietly and quickly disappear back into their daily lives in West Tennessee.
But now the anonymous "nanas" are exposed and have a website, The 9 Nanas dot com.
"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...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."
