The circle itself features radial lettering (on both sides) of powerful words to live by: “Understanding. Compassion. Acceptance.” and “Erase Hate.”
100% of the net proceeds will go to the Matthew Shepard Foundation which held a star studded gala for the launch of the pendant. Below are a few pictures from the event. (All images courtesy of the Matthew Shepard Foundation.)
“My dream is to sell one million pendants in five years and generate significant funding to help the Matthew Shepard Foundation accomplish its important mission,” said Udi Behr, Love and Pride’s founder and designer.
“Wearing the Erase Hate pendant is a great way for people to express how they feel and promote the values of understanding, compassion and acceptance that were so important to Matthew,” said Judy Shepard, executive director of the Matthew Shepard Foundation.
