Legacy is a non-profit working globally to redeem, restore, empower and equip those vulnerable to human trafficking, abuse, exploitation and addiction. We are actively working with other organizations and social justice enterprises to raise awareness and cease a network of opportunities for the formerly exploited. The product line, Eleventh Candle Co. was created to directly support the causes derived from our non-profit.
Our Current Campaign
Make A Custom Donation
All profits from the sale of Eleventh’s artisanal products go directly back into the mission of Legacy both here in the United States as well as in Ethiopia. Since that first, life-changing trip to Africa, Legacy has collaborated on the building of a school, a soccer field for children, supporting a local co-op and employing Ethiopian artisans to create products to sell. Most recently, Legacy has come alongside the Ethiopian Almaz Ashene Children and Family Support Center Association whose focus is on early childhood education, working with the street children, and empowering women within their own communities. In Columbus, we also employ women vulnerable to trafficking, abuse, exploitation and addiction at the Eleventh Candle Company. These women now have a sense of dignity, supporting themselves, receiving restorative counseling and becoming a part of a legitimate, worthy community. All of which, enables them to transition into a long-term, productive, healthy lifestyle.
A continuum of community-based care offers a hopeful solution to this plight, connecting the community, the church, the orphanages and the government in an alliance to provide the best possible care.
