For the third year in a row, Disney is supporting Make-A-Wish by inviting fans to share their ears on social media to grant more wishes.
From now until 17th November, Disney will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish for every public photo posted showing off Mickey Mouse ears on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ShareYourEars.
Guests at various Disney Parks around the world, including Disneyland Paris, can #ShareYourEars with special photo opportunities, including uniquely themed photo walls at select locations created exclusively for #ShareYourEars by Walt Disney Imagineering.
Disney Cruise Line guests can also #ShareYourEars with a special onboard photo opportunity using iconic ship elements as a backdrop to provide the famous “ears.”
Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products said: “It is a tremendous honor to support children whose wish is to come to Disney. Wish granting exemplifies the magic our 160,000 cast members and Imagineers create for guests all over the world every day.”
“With this third Share Your Ears campaign, we’ll get to make a difference in the lives of even more children and families.”
Disney and Make-A-Wish have a long-standing history together. Since 1980, when Disney was part of the first official wish, Disney has helped Make-A-Wish fulfill experiences that not only brighten lives for a special moment, but also help wish kids and their families replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Currently, more than 10,000 Disney wishes are granted every year, and this number continues to grow.
They have helped grant more than 130,000 wishes during its 40-year partnership with Make-A-Wish.
