Project Description

Hi, y’all! I’m Charli Ann Joseph and I bake cakes. That’s right! I started when I was three years old and now I bake hundreds of them for all kinds of people, and with what I’ve earned, I’ve helped people around the world get what we take for granted--food, clean water, education, and more. 

But now I’ve gone as far as I can just baking cakes. I know I’m only 14, but it’s so crazy. I knew my business was growing, but then, when I was on the Today Show, well, I realized we were doing something special. That’s how I learned what people can do when they work together. 

From now until December 25th, I’m asking you to join me.  I’m starting a crowdfunding campaign to raise $80,000 by Dec 25. Every time somebody contributes to our campaign, what they give will be added to the profits from the cakes so that we can set up a platform that will get our message out into the world, a message of love, hope, and generosity. This platform includes letting the world know we’re here through social media followers and even a Youtube channel!

I chose IFundWomen for a crowdfunding platform because they champion people’s dreams, and give back 20% of their profits to women entrepreneurs.

That’s a lot of investing with just one gift!  I can’t increase how many hours are in the day to bake cakes, but through this campaign, together we can multiply what I do. It’s a win-win!
Plus, when you invest in me, I’ll have a little something for you, too.  As a token of my appreciation, depending on which tier you choose, you’ll end up with some great swag.

Once we’ve got this campaign in the bag, and by that, I mean money in the bank :), my team and I will be producing the videos for my new YouTube channel!   You’ll get all kinds of great recipes and techniques, and see the action behind the scenes.  They’ll be prizes, too, because who doesn’t want prizes?!  


All of this is so exciting and I’m thrilled to invite you to be a part of it.  While it can be a bit intimidating, I just keep thinking… I’ve already done so much more than anybody ever imagined, including myself.  So, this? This should be a piece of cake.  


Please join me in making this world a better place one cake at a time.  My cake business has already made a difference, but together, we can change the world!  Thank you so much for supporting this next step in my business. Check out our Youtube Channel and Subscribe and ring that bell for all new recipes and more behind the scenes content!

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How will you use these funds?

When you donate to Charli Ann's Heavenly Cakes Crowdfunding Campaign, your gift, along with Charli Ann's cake profits will go towards creating content for her social media and YouTube channel in order to have a bigger reach in the world and the capability to be more generous to those in need.  At present, Charli Ann is only able to make about 6 cakes a week (which is A LOT!) and while she can't create more hours in a day, she can create a platform that would include sponsors, advertising, etc. that will increase her revenue and allow her to give back generously in food, clean water, education, etc. around the world.

  • When will I receive my reward?

We will be packaging and sending rewards at the end of every business week.  Except delays if products need to be re-ordered or there are delays due to COVID, acts of God, etc.  Otherwise, we expect your reward to arrive 1-2 weeks after donation.

  • Are you available locally or nationwide for cake orders?  How do I order a cake?

At this time, Charli Ann's Heavenly Cakes are only available locally to Rockwall, TX and surrounding areas.  However, see the answer to "How will you use these funds" to understand that she is limited in how many cakes she is able to bake in a week and tends to be about 2 months out on being booked.  Please email info@charliannsheavenlycakes.com to request a cake.  While Charli Ann would absolutely love to fill every order, please understand that it's just not possible! Orders will be considered on schedule, scope of work, etc. 

  • What else can I do to support your business?

Thanks for asking!  In addition to contributing to this campaign, please follow Charli Ann on social media (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest - @charliannsheavenlycakes) and subscribe to her YouTube channel.  Make sure you ring the bell so that you'll be notified of all new videos.  And feel free to watch the videos on repeat so they'll show tons of views! :) Please SHARE Charli Ann's social media content/videos and encourage your circle of influence to get involved, too!

You can leave a Google review to help put Charli Ann on the map.  And be sure to visit her website (www.charliannsheavenlycakes.com) and sign-up by clicking "Stay in the Loop" to receive all the latest updates. 

Besides all the online support, word of mouth about this campaign and the goal of extending hope, love, and generosity to the world is always a way of connecting people.  And most importantly, please pray for Charli Ann, her family, her team, and all the people involved in making this campaign and her business as successful and God-led as possible.
