Teen’s Tweet Saves Dad’s Bakery in Houston
Jackie Garza’s dad was considering closing La Casa Bakery after Hurricane Harvey hit Houston. But one simple tweet from Jackie helped save the business. “My dad has a little panaderia,” she wrote. “He's been thinking about closing but I can't let that happen. Spread the word. One retweet could bring in a potential customer." In just a few weeks, the tweet it had more than 1.7 million views and 65,000 retweets. Now, the family-run business continues to bring their own taste of Mexican bread to Houston thanks to the generosity of strangers. For more episodes of Secretly Awesome, visit Localish.com.
