Door County Candy Running “Life is Sweet” Charity Campaign

Door County Candy owner Terry Ullman is looking to make life a little sweeter for 32 Door County non-profits.

To celebrate Door County Candy’s 16th anniversary last year, Ullman offered to match up to ten $100 donations to Door County non-profits. He ended up receiving 16 requests for donations and, noting the kismet implicit in receiving 16 requests during his store’s “Sweet 16” celebration, decided to match them all.

“I thought $1,000 would be a lot, but it was so rewarding to give that money back,” said Ullman.

Ullman’s looking to go even bigger this year, donating $3,200 and helping twice as many non-profits.

In order to take advantage of this year’s campaign, which Ullman is calling “Life is Sweet,” givers and non-profits need to do two things. First, they have to submit a picture of a check they’d like matched. Then they have to post a picture of themselves on Facebook, somehow incorporating the words “Life is Sweet.”

The “Life is Sweet” campaign is already nearing the halfway point for submissions, and a bunch of the submitted photos from non-profits like the Boys and Girls Club of Door County, Door County Renaissance Faire, and Neighbor-to-Neighbor Volunteer Caregivers can be found on Door County Candy’s Facebook page.
