Tony Penguin Beanie Boo original profits go to FightMND

Australia’s No. 1 plush brand, Ty, has created the Tony Penguin Beanie Boo to help raise awareness and funds for FightMND.

“Please help us beat the beast that is MND/ALS,” urges Ty Warner, Founder, CEO and Chairman of Ty Inc, upon releasing a new Beanie Boo specifically to raise funds for FightMND.

Buying this Beanie Boo means you are supporting FightMND.

100% of profits from original sales of the Tony Penguin Beanie Boo will go to FightMND to support the battle against MND/ALS worldwide.

The average life expectancy of a person diagnosed with MND/ALS is only 27 months.  There is currently no effective treatment or cure.

“Hopefully, this special Beanie Boo, named after my great friend and Australian Bean Boo distributor Tony, will bring awareness around the world to this horrible disease, and bring us closer to beating the beast that is MND/ALS,” Mr Warner said.

A philanthropist, Mr Warner has donated more than $300 million to a variety of charities worldwide including the American Red Cross, UNICEF, United Way Worldwide, Ronald McDonald House, to WIRES following the devastating bushfires in Australia in 2020, and many more.

The Tony Penguin Beanie Boo is available now at newsXpress, Toyworld, Coles, and other great retailers for SRP $9.99.

  • I lost my amazing Dad to MND over 13 years ago and this was before anyone really knew what it was. It is the most horrible disease I have ever come across. I will definitely be buying one of these and I think its great that there is so much more awareness and funds raised for this disease that doesnt have a cure or cause found yet.

  • I love that TY have come up with a great way to fund raise for MND so many people don’t know what MND is and if we can educate our young people about it and give them a cute little toy at the same time

  • What a heartbreaking condition, I’m so glad a company such as TY BEANIE BOOs are trying to raise money for it! I would have loved it if the article had said more about MND as it wasn’t until the very end that I was even aware what it stood for.
