Random acts of kindness through baking

From Nine To Noon, 9:37 am on 20 August 2015

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.
