Random acts of kindness through baking
Next weekend about 250 nominated people around the country will get an anonymous gift of baking. Auckland woman Joyce McDonald, set up the weekend treat-giving - called NZ Ninja Baking Drop - to take her mind off some of the big events over the past year in her own life. A mother to a two-year-old, her husband was seriously injured in a quad bike accident and a cousin was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer. She figured that there were others who would welcome something nice happening to them and through a Facebook page and website has got over 350 people volunteering to bake - and about 250 nominations of those who could do with a random act of sweet kindness.
