$1.8 Million to Princess Diana Fund

Ty Inc.'s executive VP and CFO, Michael W. Kanzler, will present a check for $1,802,250.27 to the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund in London on October 26th. Since 1998, Ty Inc. has donated over $20,890,858.51 to the fund. All of Ty Inc.'s profits from the original purchase of the Princess Beanie Baby and Princess Beanie Buddy are donated to the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund to carry on the work of the late Princess Diana.

The popular Princess Beanie Baby was launched on 10-29-97 and retired on 4-13-99, however Beanie Collectors are still excited when they come across one. Ty Inc. launched the larger plush toy Princess Beanie Buddy in April of 1999. Charities with which Diana was formally associated have received grants to help and support those organizations. Mr. Kanzler will travel to London in late October to visit the Fund and the Osteopathic Centre for Children's Hospital, one of late Princess' charities and see first hand some of the benefits of the company's contributions.

There he is in front, next to Woolie Gold, Woolie Brown. Notice the beanie bears as well as Baron and prototype Cinnamon.

Beanie prototypes from Ty's store

You have to go there to believe what you see! Yellow Lucky, white Erin and Britannia, TD Smoochy, neon lions, Bongos and Rovers. There is a brown Strut and a green Lizzy. There is also some pretty wild Hissy's.

It is not hard to see them. Parking is easy. The store is almost at the last entrance to terminal three where the elevator comes up from the tunnel coming from parking lot "C". It is worth a trip to O'Hare.
