Teaching Youth Self-Sufficiency Through Entrepreneurship


ATLANTA, GA - and Detroit-based Legacy Associates Foundation have partnered to provide the foundation with a new source of funds to support its important youth development programs.

Through this partnership, anyone who is interested in making a difference and enriching the lives of our youth can do so simply by shopping online at over 160 popular retailers, such as,,,,,,, and more. This is at no extra cost to the supporter. In fact, they will actually earn some of the highest rebates available anywhere, a portion of which they can donate, while keeping the rest for themselves. So, concerned supporters actually save while helping.

"We know there are many in our community who learn about the amazing work of concerned organizations such as Legacy Associates Foundation and would love to contribute, but they dont think they can afford to do so," says founder Vince Martin. "We've created a way for them to actually earn cash back on regular purchases while touching the lives of our children at the same time. When we work together, contributions from our shopping can add up to billions! This is truly a case where everyone wins. In fact, our greatest challenge is that people think its too good to be true. But it is very real!"

Currently, the partnership is focused on raising funds for Legacy Associates Youth Entrepreneur & Business Skills Program. The purpose of this program is to introduce students to the idea of being an entrepreneur and setting up a small retail or service-oriented business. The program provides materials and is very hands-on, giving the children a valuable experience. More information about the program can be found at

"Entrepreneurship is an important key to economic self-sufficiency and can be a very rewarding career choice, but many children arent exposed to this opportunity," says Martin. "This program gives them both exposure and instruction and it is very much in line with's quest for economic-empowerment for all communities."
