Tis’ the season of giving – but for Al DiGuido, every season is full of giving.

Al DiGuido is the owner of Saugatuck Sweets; an ice cream and sweets shop with branches in Westport and Fairfield, Connecticut. When he opened the stores, he knew nothing about the candy business – he only knew that he wanted to do something to support his local community.

In 2004, Al also started Al’s Angels: a charity best known for helping the families of children facing severe financial hardship because of their fight against cancer or rare blood diseases.

Al has raised millions of dollars and distributed every penny. This year alone, he will be providing 3,200 families with meals and 10,000 kids with holiday gifts.

His advice to us all: “We need more angels… We need more angels to get involved so we can help more people” said Al.
