Jalen is overwhelmed with joy to see how much of a demand his bakery is receiving through social media. His goal is to have the opportunity to have his goods shipped to customers nationwide, in order to do this he needs your help.
Funds received from GoFundMe will help Jalen's Bakery to fulfill online ordering and shipping nationwide, and overall expand his business in order to reach all of his goals.
In the county of Fresno September 1, 2016 is officially "Jalen Bailey Day". Jalen is very excited about the new exciting opportunities that are coming his way and he is looking forward to having the opportunity to share what he is learning with other children, with the hopes of inspiring them to follow their dreams, be active in helping the community, and strive to become better everyday.
Thank you for keeping up with Jalen and joining us on this journey as we continue to create unforgettable memories. We are excited to announce that Jalen will be on the Rachel Ray show on Friday, September 23rd!

Thank you to all of his loyal customers that we deliver to locally. He is looking forward to being able to ship his baked goods to "spread love, one cookie at a time, all over the world".
Your son is so inspiring! He must have a wonderful mother who he obviously loves very much. I will look forward to ordering cookies online. Hopefully he will soon ship to the east coast!
