If you regularly buy Beanie Babies, you might want to consider buying Ariel the bear by Ty. Ariel is a beautiful mint green bear whose embroidered chest logo is of a drawing created by the late Ariel Glaser who later died from AIDS at the age of 5. Ariel was the daughter of Paul Michael Glaser (of Starsky & Hutch t.v. fame, for those of you old enough to remember the show) and Elizabeth Glaser. Proceeds from
this beanie will benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatrics Aids Foundation. A wonderful way for your gift to benefit not only the recipient, but others as well.
