The Rising Above Bakery kickstart Challenge

In October we launch our first fundraiser to raise $20,000 to help us kickstart start our cottage bakery.

We have used 100% of the funds we raised so far to set up our space. Now that we are in full operation we continue with our campaign and are hoping to reach our goal of $20,000. The rest of the funds will be used to support individuals who wish to learn the art of baking with us.
