Pastries made with little hands and a big heart

This time, we are going to talk about how 13-year-old boy opened a bakery and served pastries away to the homeless.

Our friend is Michael Platt who always loved to bake despite his teenage. So, when he was 11 years old, he launched a baking business called Michaels Desserts. How young is to start a business, isn't it?

Furthermore, he decided to use his passion as a means of helping the less fortunate by baking to kids, adults, and families in domestic violence and homeless shelters. He has talented hands and a good heart. Actually, he bakes pastries on his warm heart.

Baking, Michael said, makes him feel calm.

Most customers place their orders via Facebook. (Michael recently set up a website for the business.) The bakery runs on a one-for-one business model for every pastry that a customer buys, Michael gives one away to an underprivileged person.

The teen philanthropist also works with the Washington DC-based non-profit No Kid Hungry in order to distribute his pastries.

He expressed himself with these sentences: “I always wanted to have a purpose for what I do. It’s all about helping people — not just having a purpose for yourself, but thinking about, 'How does this touch other things?’”

Michael hopes his cupcakes spread awareness of the past and inspire others to work for social equality.

If you would like to order pastries to eat delicious ones from little hands and a big heart and at the same time to help less fortunate people, here Michaels pages:
