Rue did a lot to help raise money for and increase awareness of the animal rights organization PETA. At one of their fundraisers, she met a designer who created pins out of old jewelry. Rue loved the pieces and bought several of them. She is seen here wearing one with the president and co-founder of PETA – as well as her close friend – Ingrid Newkirk. The piece measures 5″ from top to the bottom of the heart and about 3.5″ across at its widest. It weighs 1.4 ounces and comes with a copy of the photo shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
