Open for Business

My Little Guy raised money last summer for an orphanage in Africa.   With the extra money he raised he was able to sponsor two children.    He is determined to be able to sponsor them again this year so came up with the idea of starting his own baking business.      We not only fully support his compassionate ministries, but there are so many wonderful lessons to be learned in budgeting, planning, time management and many other business skills.

The following is what Little Guy put together to send to friends and family letting them know about his business:

“Tanner’s Sweets and Treats” is run by a kid but you will be satisfied with what you get. This business was made for fun, but mostly made to help me raise the money to sponsor my friends who live in an African orphanage. Their names are Maluga and Nakumuli. My goal is to raise the $100 to sponsor each of my friends for the next year.

I will baking one dessert each week for you to pick from. If you would like to order, just email me and place your order.

Thank you!
Little Guy

Awesome! And he is tithing! We had a call to put aside funds for missions, today. Your little guy gets it, and that is just wonderful!

I'm proud of my little brother in Christ.
