Beanie Babies set a trend of giving

When the Beanie Babies were all the rage, a unique shop dedicated to quality gifts and accessories turned the frenzy into a fundraiser for pediatric cancer research. The Karyn Collection in Highland Park set aside $2 from each sale of a Beanie Baby, a Buddy, a Pillow Pal or Attic Treasure, which resulted in a $12,000 donation to The Foundation’s funding of research efforts. In the years since, The Karyn Collection has continued to generate unique fund raising events for the cause.
