Swarovski's Brave Heart Pin was created as a tribute to the courageous men and women who gave their lives to save others during the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.
Swarovski goes on to state that they will donate $100,000 from the sales of these pins to the September 11th Fund, which was established by United Way and the New York Community Trust. Another example of "corporate curating," and a company creating a product and tying it to 9/11, forever connecting themselves to this event and its material culture impact. Overall, great example of the impact of 9/11 and its use for driving consumerism.

NEW YORK, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City intermixes a multitude of cultures, living together in one city. In this tradition, Love, Peace, and Hope by Udi Behr, effectively relays this everlasting message of resilience, optimism, and determination of the human spirit that is blind to all colors, religions, and creeds. Unlike traditional timepieces, Love, Peace, and Hope by Udi Behr combines the high-quality craftsmanship of a Swiss made watch, with designs that were born in New York City, by designer and Tribeca resident, Udi Behr. For spring, the collection introduces three new colors: light pink, camel and baby blue. These watches are accessible to everyone at affordable price points in various styles: with stainless steel and enamel, diamond bezels, and diamond pave face. Soft colors with a strong message, Love, Peace, and Hope by Udi Behr symbolizes the timeless belief that there is always "A time for love," "A time for peace," and "A time for hope." After all, one could never have too much love, peace, and hope. Right now, our country is pending a war and there is need to spread a message of peace. A peace sign, a heart, and a ribbon engraved with a commanding message of "Love, Peace, and Hope" emanates what can only be seen in the eye of the beholder and in the heart. Love, Peace, and Hope by Udi Behr for Lucien Piccard is a collection of timepieces established two years ago by renowned jewelry designer Udi Behr. Inspired by a moving letter from his daughter to the survivors of 9/11, Udi developed this accessory with an everlasting significance to its design and function. "It's important to always have hope, dream of peace, and to love," says Udi Behr, "this is how I live my life and its what shines through in my designs." Udi's commitment to changing the world for the better surpasses just designing. He devotes much of his time to working with charities inspired by the ideals of "Love, Peace, and Hope." A percentage of the proceeds from his watches are donated to charity and he has been involved with Ground Hero Kids, God Love we Deliver, Gay Men's Health Crisis, Aids Awareness and the Fight Against Breast Cancer. Love, Peace, and Hope by Udi Behr watches are available at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales. SOURCE Love, Peace and Hope by Udi Behr for Lucien Piccard
