Bi+ Ireland was very sadden to hear about the lost of one of our co-coordinators Jon Hanna.
Rest in Power Badges
Bi+ Ireland's badge maker wanted to honour Jon's memory in the form of a badge. The idea behind the badge was to signify the community that was formed from a shared love of Jon.
For that reason, 200 badges were handed out at the funeral. Likewise badges ordered from the website will be created and delivered at no cost to the recipient.
Rest in Power Badges Financial Contribution
However, if you have the means to contribute to the cost of the badges, it would be greatly appreciated.
Any surplus money will be donated to Abortion Support Network.
