The announcement was made last Friday that Disneyland will be giving back to the community, for the next ten years they will be giving away free Disneyland park hopper tickets to every 6th grader in public or private school in Anaheim who does something to benefit their community.
The new program, “Happiest Class on Earth: Anaheim 6th Graders Making a Difference” is how Disneyland is celebrating it 61st anniversary year!
Jill Bolton, director of corporate citizenship at Disneyland said:
“Sixth grade is a great year to help inspire students to give back to their community through service,”
Disney Ambassador Allie Kawamoto and Mickey Mouse made the announcement today to Horace Mann Elementary School in Anaheim student. All of the students were excited by this news especially the near 120 sixth graders.

Students will be able to decide what is needed for their community and if they will work alone or in a group. Each school also will be given a suggested list of good deeds that can be done by their students. There are many projects students can chose to do such as organizing a school-wide playground cleanup, recycling on campus, volunteering at a senior center or organizing group activities with students who have disabilities just to name a few.
This is a great way to reward children for doing great things for their community and teach them that helping others is a great way to live.
