Nashville-based singer/songwriter Molly Adele Brown always tries to find the best in a person. In a world filled with so much hate, Brown wanted to do something special to give back to her local community. For the past year, she decided to bake ‘Molly’s Kindness Cookies’ and deliver them to the Nashville Rescue Mission to help feed the increasing number of homeless people living in Music City. Brown will be preparing her next batch of cookies on December 19 and will deliver them to the Mission on December 20, just in time for the Christmas holiday!
“Kindness cookies evolved from years of baking cookies and handing them out to the homeless in New York City,” states Brown. “Growing up, my mom would take my youth group on midnight runs where we would go through the city at night and hand out food and clothes to the homeless. We would interact and get to know these people and learn about their stories. Every time was so inspiring, and I knew I wanted to continue to give back. Once I moved to Nashville, I started helping out with Nashville Rescue Mission and fell in love with their organization and what they provide. Since then I have been getting a group of friends together to bake cookies each month. Being able to share something I love to do (bake) to a community that needs some extra kindness really makes my heart sing.”
In 2019, Brown hopes to grow what they are doing here in Nashville and expand to other communities as well. She lives by the quote: In a world where you can be anything, be kind. “This may be one small act of kindness but if we work together, I believe it can grow into so much more.”
To date, Brown has prepared over 80 batches of cookies which helped feed approximately 1,000 homeless people around Nashville.
