TY Toys has announced the introduction of Hope, a limited-edition praying bear. The multi-colored bear will offer a symbol of hope to the world while also bringing support to the United Way Worldwide COVID-19 fund. One hundred percent of the profits from the original sales will be given to the United Way Worldwide fund.

“The world needs hope, and this little bear just might bring us the smile we need right now,” says Ty Warner, owner, TY. “It is an honor to partner with United Way Worldwide, the world’s largest nonprofit organization, which has been providing hope to communities around the world for more than 135 years.”

Warner’s announcement follows his decision last month to open his Four Seasons Hotel New York to nurses and medical workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, providing them a place to stay free of charge. In addition to today’s release, Warner is delivering individual Hope bears to the medical professionals currently staying at the hotel – and making additional donations to the United Way Worldwide on their behalf.
