become a part of our story
If you've landed here, you've probably seen our newsletter and/or our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for helping Mo & The Accidental Baker scale up operations. If not, then please have a look at the video above where Mo tells all about her dream.
For all of you living in South Africa, we have created a slightly different & closer to home way in which you can support the bakery in exchange for a share of the bakery products.
We hope you find this endeavour as exciting as we do and want to become a part of our story by pledging towards the bakery and choosing one of our exclusive rewards below. After you have made your choice, click the fund2bake button to let us know which reward you prefer and we will get back to you on how you can make your donation and collect your reward. If you'd like to give but not receive, we'll express our gratitude by eternalizing you on our Founders Wall.
