Giving back to the community is such a fulfilling way to spend time, especially family time! Since family time, and giving back, are such a big park of the Disney experience, Disney Parks have teamed up with Points of Light to launch the Disney Family Volunteering Reward program. This program will recognize and inspire nonprofits engaging families. Eligible nonprofits can earn up to 20 tickets per calendar year through the new program.
All across the United States organization are getting involved. In honor of National Mentoring Month, and as a part of this new program, 17 Big Brothers Big Sisters of America chapters from all across the country are hosting family volunteer activities that will earn them complimentary tickets to visit Disney Parks.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County and the Inland Empire earned tickets by hosting a carnival for children they serve. They also included a service project. Disney VoluntEARS were “BIGS for a day” at the carnival. The created care packages for seniors in need with their “littles.”
You can take a look at how the service project really added to this day of fun. And how they earned another day of fun – this time at a Disney Park – by participating!
