      Thats really sweet!!

      My mother is like that. We have bought wada pavs and other stuff for so many street children I’ve lost count..
      However once, there was this little girl with an infant who was begging just outside American Bakery opposite Mocha Mojo. We saw them when we were entering the bakery and my mum being her usual self, got them a packaged loaf of bread with raisins (or something like that). And when we were exiting about 10 minutes later, they were no were to be seen, however that loaf of bread was lying in its packing on the steps. That girl just discarded it as she was only looking for money.
      That kind of hurt my mom, and she stopped giving so much.. But she sometimes still carries sweets in her bag for them!

For the few who don’t value your unconditional love there are millions that would be grateful for it and she will continue to be the angle in their lives. Now send me your deets I’m sending your mom a present xoxo info@missmalini.com :) xoxo

      God bless you Jason!

      You make us proud that amid all the chaos in this world, you took time to do a little deed that made a difference in the life of that woman, ever briefly.

      Arizona has been in the bad news lately because of the immigration news, but I always love visiting Arizona (Sedona, Flagstaff, GC, etc etc).
