Legacy projects

A legacy project is any activity you do to preserve your own legacy or to honor a deceased loved one. This can be something personal or something intended to be shared with the world.

Legacy letters & ethical wills

A legacy letter, also known as an ethical will, is a written document that passes on important lessons to surviving loved ones after your death. Though you should leave a legal will outlining your wishes, sometimes we can't express more emotional and heartfelt messages through these legal documents. A legacy letter is a way to translate your values, stories, and memories into real-world experiences for the next generation.
