Happy Thanksgiving from Judy Shepard

Dear friend,

With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I wanted to thank you for supporting our work at the Matthew Shepard Foundation. It’s because of your support that we can continue to tell Matthew’s story, what he means to us, and what he has meant to the world.

As a small sign of my gratitude, and knowing that many of us are preparing to share some special time with friends and family, I thought I would share a favorite recipe in our house, my Spaghetti Pie. A few years ago I received some really wonderful feedback about my brownie recipe and last year my sheet-cake was well received, so I thought maybe it was time to share this with you too.

It would be fun to think of Foundation supporters enjoying this great potluck dish during holiday celebrations with loved ones. Let us know if you do!

Wishing you a safe and happy Thanksgiving,

Judy Shepard



With your help we can continue our work to share Matthew's dream of replacing the hate in the world with understanding, compassion, and acceptance.
