How to anonymously send my Grandmother money? I love my Grandmother to pieces. She's one of my favorite people. She's the most charismatic woman I've ever known.. she just has a way with people. I watch her engage others in awe; she can disarm an utterly rigid stranger in a few seconds by simply bestowing her beautiful aura upon them. Pathetically, people have taken advantage of her throughout her entire life. I won't go into details because it's irrelevant, but her story is a sad one.
Anyway I'm an adult now and I'm making a good living. I want to help her out without her knowing it's me, and for the rest of her life. She would never accept financial assistance from me so I have to be stealthy.

I'm thinking about sending her money orders every month, but I'd honestly rather just give her cash. She lives in a fixed income complex for seniors and I don't want any issues having to do with her depositing money into an account, etc. I know gifts aren't taxable, at least on her end, so I'm not worried about that. I just don't want them reviewing her finances and seeing that she's out of the income range to stay where she is. She really likes her community and has made quite a few friends. Obviously I can't write her checks. What's the best method, in your opinion? Also, where to mail from? She knows where I am, anything within an hour's drive is out. We have family all over the state. I don't want her harassing everyone for answers, and she will, she makes a fuss about anything that's given to her. Please help me brainstorm!
