I believe that if we can teach little girls to dream that they will be a force that changes the world. But I believe more than that. If we can teach broken women to dream like little girls again, it will be a force the world has yet to see. -Amber Runyon
I got a chance to sit down with the founder and CEO of Eleventh Candle Company, Amber Runyon. Her life's work is a social enterprise in Columbus, Ohio. As taken right from the mission statement, Partnering with Legacy to redeem, restore, empower and equip those vulnerable to human trafficking abuse, exploitation and addiction.
Amber and her crew help once trafficked women in Columbus, Ohio by employing them in her candle company and the proceeds from that work go to supporting orphaned children in a village in Ethiopia. As she says in the podcast, they are looking to make true and sustainable change so although they may help fewer people it's in a really real way.
