Today’s episode really touched our hearts, in a way we weren’t quite expecting when we started recording. Our guest is Amber Runyon, Founder of Eleventh Candle Co., a product line launched through Legacy, a non-profit based out of Columbus. Collectively, these two organizations are working globally to redeem, restore, empower, and equip those vulnerable to human trafficking, abuse, exploitation, and addiction.

Human trafficking is probably not at all like what you think it is – and unfortunately, it’s also probably not as far away as you think it is. The silver lining is that there are people out there like Amber making a huge difference, and she shows that even small acts – like buying a candle – can be used to empower others.
