With every purchase of our Totally Pride teddy bear, 10% of the retail price will be given directly to the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Check out the counter below to see how much we — via you, our customers — have contributed to #ErasingHate! The Matthew Shepard Foundation was founded by Dennis and Judy Shepard in memory of their 21-year-old son, Matthew, who was murdered in an anti-gay hate crime in Laramie, Wyoming, in October 1998. Created to honor Matthew in a manner that was appropriate to his dreams, beliefs, and aspirations, the Foundation seeks to “Replace Hate with Understanding, Compassion, and Acceptance” through its varied educational, outreach, and advocacy programs, and by continuing to tell Matthew’s story.
