In one of her first times baking during the pandemic, 8-year-old Caroline Phillips  made too much for her family to eat. After brainstorming with her mom, Erica, the pair decided to start an online business-Sweet Caroline Bakes-and share her treats and kindness with the community at large. Each new project begins with a round of baking where Phillips makes items like peanut butter cookies, apple tart, blueberry crumb bars, cakes, and challah and sells them to customers. She has raised over $2,000 and donates money to charities like The ARK, Dare 2 Tri, and Black Lives Matter.  

"It makes me feel good to give money to organizations that help people while baking which is something I love to do," said Caroline, who wants to teach baking when she grows up.
