Breyer, the brand known for its horse-inspired toys, gifts, and collectibles, announced the release of its limited edition 2021 Freedom Series Horse of the Year: Hope. Now available at major retailers and the Breyer website, every Hope model purchased will contribute one dollar toward the organization Covenant House to care for homeless youth.
“We’re very proud of this year’s Horse of the Year and the unique opportunity to create a beautiful horse portraying the powerful, uniting message of hope for a brighter future and a better tomorrow,” said Stephanie Macejko, Vice President, Marketing, Breyer. “It is an honor to partner with Covenant House and support this wonderful organization providing safety, care and hope to young people experiencing homelessness across our country.”
Every year, Breyer features a themed limited-edition Horse of the Year. For 2021, the company wanted to celebrate hope as a driver of good and progress. The Hope horse features realistic sculpting and shades of purple, turquoise, pink, and gold, with the markings on her coat revealing hidden images and the word “Hope.”
Breyer is also a sponsor of the Covenant House’s gala fundraiser, “Night of Covenant House Stars,” that will be hosted on Monday, May 17, 2021, beginning at 8 p.m. E.T. The virtual event is free to the public and will feature a lineup of artists and youth advocates who will spotlight Breyer and Covenant House’s joint mission to end youth homelessness.
Covenant House works across the U.S., Canada, and Latin America to provide food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and an array of specifically designed in-house programs that support young adults experiencing homelessness.
“We are so grateful to our friends at Breyer for bringing the power of hope in this unique way to the amazing, resilient young people at Covenant House,” said Covenant House President, Kevin Ryan. “This is the kind of community partnership that not only provides the financial support we need for our programs in 31 cities across six countries, but also provides empowerment to our young people as they pursue the great promise of their lives.”
