(RNS) — The Ten Commandments monument that was knocked down less than 24 hours after it was erected on the grounds of the Arkansas state Capitol is going back up.

Pure Flix — the Christian entertainment studio behind the “God’s Not Dead” series, the recent film adaptation of “The Case for Christ” and the upcoming adaptation of “Same Kind of Different as Me” — has pledged $25,000 toward the cost of rebuilding it.

The money will go to the American History and Heritage Foundation, the nonprofit behind the original stonework.

“We hope our donation will contribute to the costs to rebuild this beautiful landmark,” Pure Flix COO Steve Fedyski said in a written statement. “Little Rock — and Arkansas in general — have been very hospitable to us and we want give back to the community in a meaningful way.”
