Miep Gies coined that phrase. She was an otherwise ordinary person who did an extraordinary thing by hiding Anne Frank’s family in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam.
Friends of liberty know this truth: A single light can be seen for miles in the darkness. Mackinac Center Legacy Society members turn on lights all over the nation by creating a legacy of freedom for future generations.
When you include the Mackinac Center in your will or estate plan, you automatically become a member of our Legacy Society. Your donation will help us push back against government overreach and advance the values you cherish.
Mackinac Center Legacy Society members shine a light in the darkness of the world today, giving a strong, clear voice to the voiceless and ensuring future generations will hear the vital message of liberty. As a member, you will stand secure in the knowledge that your bequest is advancing freedom and opportunity for all people, regardless of the challenges that arise.
