Ty Introduces New "America" Beanie Baby
to Benefit American Red Cross

Ty Inc. today announced the introduction of "America," a new Beanie Baby created to help in our nation's recovery from the attacks that occurred on September 11. 100% of Ty's profit from the original purchase of the "America" Beanie Baby will be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Ty has pledged a minimum of $1,000,000.00 to the American Red Cross, but expects the donation will be far greater.

Ty Warner, President and CEO of Ty explained: "I mourn this terrible tragedy along with the rest of the nation. All of our lives have been touched forever by what has happened, but hopefully we will be able to heal the wounds. The Beanie Baby "America" gives everyone an opportunity to be a hero in some small way. Let's work together and perhaps we will be able to make a difference." "America" the Beanie Baby will be available for sale globally.

According to Skip Seitz, Senior Vice President of the American Red Cross, "The American Red Cross is working around the clock to ensure that those affected by the recent tragedies have comfort and care. We are grateful that so many Americans, including Ty, have demonstrated a willingness to help the Red Cross provide immediate and long-term relief to everyone who has been touched by these catastrophic events."
