January of 2021 "Yum Yum" read the book "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park in his literature class. The story is about the poor water conditions and how children of South Sudan miss school to walk up to 8 hours to retrieve water for their families. The poor water conditions pulled on Yum Yum's heartstrings and he wanted to do something about it. Around the same time, Yum Yum's grandmother passed away and she made the BEST caramel rolls. As a tribute to her and on the day before her funeral, he made a batch of her caramel rolls so he could place a roll in the casket to send her to heaven with it. His mother posted a photo on Facebook of his baking efforts and a friend commented they would like Yum Yum to make them a dozen caramel rolls and they would be happy to purchase them. Well... after a short discussion with his family, they all realized he had created the outlet to raise money the $15,000 needed for a new water well to benefit "Water for South Sudan" - the charity affiliated the book.
