Powell baker, Alli Krivanek, donates ALL profits to kids on the other side of the world
When she returned to Central Ohio in the spring of 2014, she saw the world differently.
Alli Krivanek spent four months in Zambia, a country in Southern Africa, teaching children on a mission trip.
"I would say about 60% to 70% of the kids had AIDS," she told ABC6/FOX28. "Usually, they get one meal a day."
It wasn't the poverty or the illnesses that surprised Alli the most; instead, it was the pure joy they showed.
"I could not tell you a time where they were not smiling or singing," she said from her Powell home. "I asked [someone], 'how are you so happy?' And he said, 'because we have God on our side."
After she returned, Alli decided to start her own bakery business, Sweet Alli's, as a way to help those children. The bakery is run out of her family's home and she donates 100% of the profits, she said.
Sweet Alli's is her side-job. The 23-year-old also works for a catering company and just finished nursing school
