Jack has granted me permission to advertise for his pumpkin bread business. There is a tab at the top of my blog about his inspiring story, so I won’t repeat myself. This fall he has been baking steadily, a little here, a little there, and word is spreading among the teachers at his school that he makes the most delicious bread, and with a good cause. Craig had a potluck at work so he set out samples of Jack’s bread including the order form Jack made and a blank sheet for orders. In one hour he had seventeen loaves to bake! And they haven’t even seen his cute face!
School in Uganda will end for the year in a week or so. They have their “summer break” as we have it in June, from mid November until early February. I reminded Jack that he will have a big bill to pay in February for the five children he sponsors to attend school in Uganda. He has his money box with a combination lock where he keeps a list of who has donated and all the funds he has collected. He counts it and calculates how much more he needs to bake in order to send the children to school.
The baking is a cute ordeal in our kitchen. He is completely independent, except he likes for me to stir it up. For some reason he has man muscles when he brags to his friends, but they aren’t so useful when it comes to stirring pumpkin dough. He can turn out four loaves in one effort, and sometimes, depending on the orders, he pops four in the oven, rinses out the bowls, and starts over so when they come out the next set are ready to go. I like his system. I package them with a bow and help deliver.
So, the point of this blog, is he said he is willing to take orders “from the internet”, officially like a business man. So, if anyone out there would like to purchase some pumpkin bread from Jack he will be baking next week, as he has the whole week off of school.
It costs $10 per loaf, and I will ask for $5 for shipping. (Mom and Dad donate ingredients and cover the extras)
