Disney Donates $3 Million to Make-A-Wish Thanks to #ShareYourEars Campaign

We previously announced that Disney was running an amazing campaign for donations to Make-A-Wish.  During the campaign, guests from all over where encouraged to share pictures of themselves and their loved ones with Mickey ears as part of the #ShareYourEars.  Over hundreds of thousands of Disney fans participated and resulted in Disney donating US $3 million to Make-A-Wish.  This amazing donation will make a huge different for many children and families all around the world.

Disney has been working Make-A-Wish for many years.  The cause helps grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses so that they can have special moments with their families.  Currently, nearly 10,000 Disney wishes are granted every year with Make-A-Wish, helping wish kids replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
