You may remember seeing Disney fans post photos of themselves on social media last month wearing Mickey Mouse ears with the hashtag #ShareYourEars. In honor of the 100,000th Disney wish, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts agreed to donate $5.00 to Make-A-Wish for every photo shared between January 29 and March 14, up to $1 million. Due to the overwhelming support of this campaign, Disney has decided to double their original pledge by donating $2 million to Make-A-Wish.
Take a look at some of the highlights from the big announcement.
Jon Stettner, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish International said: “We are grateful to Disney and the hundreds of thousands of fans around the world who shared their simple, artistic and sometimes even wacky ears. It’s because of you that wish kids and families experience the life-changing power of a wish-come-true.”
