What is the story behind Organic Candy Factory?
"Right before her 6th birthday, Ginger told me she wanted to open up a candy store. Instead of turning down her idea, I wanted to empower her and let her know that she can do anything she wants if she sets her mind to it. I thought it was going to be a temporary project, but then orders started pouring in!"
How involved is Ginger with the business?
Ginger is 12 now and she comes with me to all the food events. On weekends, she sells candies at the farmers’ markets and 100% of the proceeds she makes is donated to foundations for endangered animals, like snow leopards and manatees.
A portion of the profit we make elsewhere is donated to Hope North, a charity that provides shelter and education for orphans and child soldiers from Uganda."
