Our Favorite Causes

We are happy to set aside a portion of our proceeds for philanthropy. Here are some of the causes we have supported over the past few years.

Each year, we also select one or more groups nominated by our Beanie friends for a donation. If you would like to nominate a worthy cause, drop us a note at IndriVanilla@gmail.com.

  • Direct Donation

    We donate funds directly to our most trusted suppliers who in turn donate directly to those who need it most. Orphans, people affected by severe weather, and others in need in their countries.

    Last year we matched a fundraiser with our Beanies and donated $10,000 to our supplier network.

    Drop us a note if you are willing to help fund this effort.
